It’s Good To Be A Selangorian!


Cozy neighborhood, amenities within a stone’s throw are just two things to describe Selangor. What if I told your there’s 13 more!

Lets dive straight into some of the perks being a Selangorian. These benefits all come under the Inisiatif Peduli Rakyat (IPR) scheme. Programs under the IPR was developed by Pakatan Harapan 10 years ago and its primary focus was to enrich the people of Selangor through various benefits. IPR mostly gets its funding by the revenues of the state.
