Housing ministry gives unlimited tokens for apartment submissions

The housing ministry has begun giving out unlimited tokens for the submission of applications to apply for the 1500 flats being built at Hulhumalé.

Unlimited tokens are being handed out after a number of complaints from people queuing from early this morning who fell foul of the previous 175 token limit per day.

People have been queuing as early as midnight in the hope of being able to submit apartment forms the following day.

The decision by the housing ministry is expected to improve the application process, although there are a numerous administrative issues expected to complicate proceedings.
