"So that overall, the program achievements for 2020 of 200,972 units with a value of VAT-free facilities provided by the Government of IDR 2.92 trillion for MBR," he said.

On this occasion, the Minister of PUPR also explained that the provision of PPN DTP facilities of 100 percent was given for the sale of landed houses or apartment residential units with a selling value of up to IDR 2 billion and VAT DTP of 50 percent for those with a selling value above IDR 2 billion to IDR 5 billion.

Furthermore, the criteria for landed houses and flats that receive this incentive must be physically submitted and ready for habitation. Then another requirement is that one person can only have 1 new residential unit and cannot be resold within a period of 1 year.
