Surprised that the rental price for Kampung Susun Bayam is IDR 1.5 million, JIS Evicted Residents: We can’t afford to cover all

JAKARTA, – PT Jakarta Propertindo or Jakpro offers residents a rental price for the Kampung Susun Bayam unit, amounting to IDR 1.5 million per month.

This was conveyed by Jakpro, when holding a meeting with Kampung Bayam residents at the Papanggo Village Office Meeting Hall, North Jakarta on Wednesday (23/11/2022) evening.

According to the Head of the Bayam Madani Village Residents’ Farmer Group, M Furkhon, the rental price is very high and burdensome for residents.

“We were surprised. What about our capabilities,” Furkhon told, Friday (25/11/2022).

Furkhon also regretted Jakpro’s move of setting exorbitant rental rates.

In fact, according to him, the residents of Kampung Bayam have been cooperative from the start to be evicted for the Jakarta International Stadium (JIS) construction project.

At that time, said Fukhron, residents voluntarily moved furniture to temporary housing because they were promised to get a unit in the flat.

“Supposedly, in these three years, we have certainty. Our wish is, yes, (rent rates) for maintenance and so on, (but) with a nominal value that must be commensurate with us,” said Furkhon.

Residents, he continued, only depended on uncertain livelihoods ranging from scavenging, odd jobs, even being unemployed.

If you want a rental fee to occupy Kampung Susun Bayam, residents should be notified from the start.

Unfortunately, he said, the parties concerned had never mentioned the cost of living in Kampung Susun Bayam

Because of this, the residents were surprised when the Rp. 1.5 million rental fee was set.

“Lease, he said, to be returned to the maintenance process. In our opinion, this doesn’t make sense. How come we can expend manpower for maintenance,” explained Furkhon.
