The Ministry of Housing and Infrastructure has decided to extend the period for submitting application forms for the government’s home ownership – or ‘Gedhoruverikan’ – programme.
In a press release today, the ministry announced that members of the public issued tokens to submit application forms on Sunday and Monday could do so from December 9 to 31.
President Abdulla Yameen has declared a two-day government holiday following the disruption to the capital’s water supply caused by a fire at the Malé Water and Sewerage Company (MWSC) last week.
Housing Minister Dr Mohamed Muiz revealed last month that 8,700 people had submitted application forms for the housing programme while tokens have been issued to a further 17,000.
The government announced the ‘Gedhoruverikan’ social housing scheme, to provide flats for citizens of the capital and finance for construction in the atolls, in February.
