There's a lot of talk in the papers right now about transparency, hidden agendas, people with things to hide etc.
One thing I am sure many people in Singapore would want to know is how much does it cost to build a HDB flat in Singapore?
No, I do not want to hear that it is based on market price of land, contractors, building materials and be told to work it out myself. I just want the figures.
Please tell me how much it costs the HDB to build a HDB flat. Is it that complicated?
I mean we are told that there are tremendous amounts of subsidies given to us when we buy a HDB flat too. In fact reports have said that because of these subsidies the HDB loses millions of dollars a year. I can't imagine how much my flat actually costs then considering HDB charged me $367,000 for the flat AFTER subsidies!
Come on HDB. It's a simple question. "How much does it cost to build a HDB flat?" The answer should be eg $X or X dollars. It's that simple.
This is something that HDB knows that we do not. Instead of asking others whether they know something that we do not, please HDB, come out and tell us the facts that we do not know but we know that you definitely know but for some reason do not want to tell us.
Please live up to the claim of being a transparent government.
