Around 8,700 people have submitted application forms for the government’s home ownership programme while tokens have been issued to a further 17,000, housing minister Dr Mohamed Muiz revealed yesterday.

Speaking at a press conference about the ministry’s achievements during the past year, Muiz said application forms would be accepted until February.

The ministry would assess the applications and make home visits to determine standard of living, he added.

The government announced the ‘Gedhoruverikan’ social housing scheme in February.
