A total of 184 applications were received from tenants of Public Rental Board, but only 33 were approved for relief packages on COVID- 19 because most of the tenants did not wish to disclose their income.

This, according to Housing Minister Premila Kumar while answering questions on the update of COVID- 19 relief provided by housing agencies in the country.

“Under the Relief Scheme, affected customers can apply for various options as prescribed by the Consumer Credit Act, Section 66, such as repayment holiday, extension of loan term for a period of up to six months interest only repayment, extending the term of the loan and reducing the repayment amount.”
