Saudi's Sakani adds 10,000 plots of land for electronic selection
The Sakani programme delivered approximately 90,000 plots of land in various regions of the kingdom in 2019
Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Housing has added three housing plans to its Sakani programme, and has made the plans available for selection on its electronic portal and its smartphone application.
The three plans have been distributed over three areas, and includes a total of 9,737 plots of land – with 650 plots of land in the Yakrab scheme in the Abqaiq region; 5,422 plots of land in the Al-Manar project scheme in the Baysh region; and 3,665 plots of land in the Durrat Sharurah scheme in the Sharurah governorate.
As part of its aim to provide housing to Saudi citizens through electronic services, the Sakani programme has permitted eligible Saudi nationals to choose the appropriate housing scheme; pick their plot of land; complete the registration procedures; and even sign the contracts electronically.
The building permits are expected to be issued within six months, with construction of the housing units likely to complete within three years, according to the state-run Saudi Press Agency.
The Sakani programme delivered approximately 90,000 plots of land in various regions of the kingdom during 2019, including 137,906 lands provided through electronic reservation within 146 plans.
The housing initiative aims to develop 72 plans and provide more than 90,000 plots of land in 2020.
