PROPERTY owners in Kuala Lumpur who are considering doing home renovations should submit their applications through the Kuala Lumpur Integrated Submission System (KLIS).
Successful applicants will receive relevant documents such as approval of construction and engineering plans, as well as Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) through the platform.
Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Mahadi Che Ngah said it was about speeding up the review and issuance of permits for small-scale projects (B2).
âWith KLIS, inquiries can be processed without too much delay.
âThe officers responsible for reviewing applications can also work remotely,â he said.
B2 projects refer to the renovation of houses with a floor area of ââless than 100 square meters, as well as roofs or walls, not exceeding 50% of the original dimension.
Mahadi said using KLIS for such projects would generate more assessment tax revenue for Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).
“More floor space will mean higher taxes,” he said, adding that DBKL would train employees to operate KLIS.
The mayor was speaking at a KLIS launching ceremony for small-scale projects at the Kuala Lumpur Library in Jalan Raja.
Also present were Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim and Minister General Datuk Seri Rosida Jaafar.
Shahidan said KLIS has received 1,276 applications for B2 projects since it took effect on October 1.
âOf this number, 119 have already received their CCC.
âKLIS’s reach will be phased in to include medium and large-scale projects by the end of 2022,â he said, adding that the system has cut application processing time by more than half. .
The minister said KLIS was part of DBKL’s efforts to digitize its services for the convenience of city dwellers.
KLIS was introduced on January 15, 2019 to receive applications for development projects involving bungalows, terraces and townhouses.
It aims to reduce bureaucracy and eliminate red tape, as well as prevent potential abuse of power in the approval process. – By FARID WAHAB
