The fee, according to the President, is charged by the subdistrict office, not by the National Land Agency (BPN). If the BPN asks to pay it, he called on the people to report this matter.
Please report it if you find the case. However, there is indeed fee for staking out the land charged by the subdistrict office, but not by the BPN. If the BPN asks for fee, report it, President Jokowi responded to reporters questions after inspecting Fostering Economy for Prosperous Families (known as Mekaar) program conducted by a state-owned financing company Permodalan Madani Nasional (PMN), at Bekasi City Square, West Java, Friday (25/1).
In that event, the President did not specify the exact amountof money. However, he ensured that the figure does not reach millions of rupiah. Therefore, the President asked the residents to report if they are asked to pay millions of rupiah.
Report it, since the fee is already covered by the Government in the budget, President Jokowi firmly said.
