was at SAFRA Toa Payoh couple of days ago and looking at the old photos on the wall.  Chanced upon this photo that i realised the old NSmen actually had pirorities for HDB flats....  

 

Then why this privilege was taken away for the later (present) generation?  [mad]  [mad]

 

I rem in one of the suggestions posted by angry citizens calling for NSmen to be given pirorty for HDB flat selection.  This is nothing new!!  They did had this scheme before in 1974, and taken away for whatever reason!!!! [mad]

Because it's impractical afterwhile?

Think majority of co-applicants in the 80s and 90s were Singaporean males who have served NS.

Thanks for sharing, was not aware that there was this privilege!  

Well, I guess with more non-NS-serving-citizen here, makes good sense to bring it back!

I think its to recognise the first few batches of NSMen who has gone thru' the tough trainings when we became independence in 1965. That was a difficult period when everyone seems to want to makan us.

 

As we have more and more ppl enlisting into army, guess the relevance is not there anymore, since most men do go thru NS.

 

Coming into now this period, if they are revisiting this issue, also good for singaporeans.

This will be one of the way to differentiate betw core singaporeas and PRs, etc.

There must be a good reason for it to be implemented and an even BIGGER reason why it was removed.

 

Who know why???

So this kind of policy will only be around when supply higher than demand. When demand goes up, the policy will be removed. Hmmm... Logical. Sounds like something our gahmen will do.

I know current NS not as "xiong" as previous generation / years, and while there are definitely chao kengsters, the current generation of NSF still play a huge role in the defense of Singapore. Technology has changed the way we live, it should also change the way we fight. There were definitely kengsters in the past, as there are now. Maybe it's because of social media that more have came to light.

 

Let's not put down one generation of servicemen just because their service is deemed to be less "tough". We all (mostly) still serve and defend our nation and our loved ones all the same.

I respectfully disagree.

 

Looking at the actual number of singaporeans now, so many flat owners are no PRs or 2nd gen PRs turned citizen.

They DO NOT serve NS.

 

Though whether the policy get's revised does not impact me since im already a HDB owner, but we should think of the rest of our fellow singaporeans.

 

Also, AWARE should not kpkb unless they intend to marry men who are not singaporeans or they can volunteer for 2.5 years and get the same "privilege"

I agree with this.

and frankly, if our government really made up their mind on some policy......you think aware or unaware can influent it?

I don't think so.
