Land owned Jabar on it now built the Faculty of Social and Political Science (FSIP) was formerly called Wisma Kertamukti. The building is exactly adjacent to the Psychology Faculty building in the north and the International Sport Club Indonesia (ISCI) sports center in the south. While behind the guesthouse (east) there is Lake Situ Gintung and the west is the highway (Jalan Kertamukti) which connects between Jalan Ir Juanda and Jalan Cireundeu Raya.

Since it was split into two provinces in 2000, Wisma Kertamukti land is one of the assets that is not submitted. The land asset is still owned by West Java although geographically it is located in the Banten Provincial Government.

According to Tarsim, officer of the house manager at that time, West Java Provincial Government is still responsible for the right management of land assets and buildings on it. That’s because the homestead has not been officially submitted from West Java Provincial Government to the Banten Provincial Government.

“However, I heard that the homestead will be handed over to UIN Jakarta,” said PNS Group II West Java provincial government is.

Tarsim is an employee who is daily assigned to manage the guesthouse, ranging from caring for buildings to cleaning the park. He is accompanied by another employee but is an honorary employee.

Tarsim tells, he started working in homestead since the West Java provincial government led by Aang Kunaefi Kartawiria in 1972. Until before the land was built FISIP building, already six Tarsim governors work at Wisma Kertamukti. “Among the six governors who once led West Java, only Aang Kunaefi, Yogie S Memet, and R Nuriana who often visit the homestead,” said the man from Kebumen, Central Java, it.

While still in the West Java Provincial Government, the homestead serves as a liaison office or representative office between the West Java provincial government and the central government. In fact, the homestead is also often used as transit of the governors and officials of West Java, both to simply rest and stay. However, since the province was broken down, the liaison office was then transferred to Jalan Pembangunan II, Central Jakarta.

Given that since Wisma Kertamukti no longer functioned by West Java provincial government, UIN Jakarta and plans to use the land to build a lecture building. Efforts and negotiations continue to be conducted by the leadership of UIN Jakarta to the Governor of West Java. As a result, West Java Provincial Government through Vice Governor of West Java Dede “Tiger” Yusuf signal that the land will be submitted to UIN Jakarta.

“Because for the sake of education, West Java Provincial Government will hand over the homestead to UIN Jakarta. But the mechanism after the DPRD Jabar knock hammer and submit it first to the Provincial Government of Banten, “said Dede during a visit to UIN Jakarta campus on October 9, 2008 ago.
