Changing address on MyKad needs supporting documents from May 2
Applications to change any details on the identity card (MyKad) should be attached with supporting documents such as utility bill or assessment letter effective May 2, says Deputy Home Minister Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman. He said supporting documents should be produced as valid evidence for using a new address to avoid the problem of having an invalid address on the identity card. According to him, there were cases of 50 to 100 people using the same address for identity cards. Some application addresses are vacant land without houses. Tenants would produce the house rent agreement or receipts to prove they are residing in the new address. (Malay Mail)

Taman Rimba Kiara project disputes to be tabled to cabinet for decision
The disputes over the proposed housing project at Taman Rimba Kiara, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, will be tabled and finalised at the Cabinet meeting next month, said Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad. He said if the project was scrapped, the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) would have to pay more than RM150 million in compensation to the developer. A decision will most probably be made in April, he said. The proposed project, which involves the construction of 350 units of affordable houses for Bukit Kiara longhouse residents and eight blocks of 50-storey high-end condominiums on a 4.8-hectare land, has been opposed because of the concern for one of the last green lungs in the city.
