Experts to improve e-Tanah land registration system

PETALING JAYA: The Selangor Government will bring in land experts to improve the state's e-Tanah registration system, which is alleged to have led to manipulation and multiple ownership of land.

Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said the state wanted to identify the weaknesses in the system to resolve the problem.

Tan Sri Khalid: Premature to blame land scams on a syndicate, as alleged by Khir Toyo.

“But it takes a bit of time to find 'why did you do this and that', then only can we solve the problem,” he said after a get-together with residents of the Kampung Muhibbah PPR flats in Puchong yesterday.

He told this to reporters when asked about the alleged land scams uncovered by the new state government.

Khalid said the weaknesses in the registration system were in the recording, approval and identification of owners.

“When you are talking about 20,000 files, people can change a file and even manipulate it. But we don't want to talk about manipulation until we clear up the system,” he said.

Khalid said most of the cases of multiple land ownerships were in the Petaling and Gombak districts, where the land prices were high.

“We are trying to find out why it happened and at the same time try to bring up some of cases for clarification and even for the courts to decide who the real owners are,” he said.

On former Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo's claim that a syndicate was involved in the land scams and that it occurred when the manual system was computerised, Khalid said it would be premature to blame it on a syndicate until a probe was carried out.

On his visit to the Kampung Muhibbah PPR flats, he said the residents' problems included renting and buying the flat units from Kuala Lumpur City Hall.

“A repayment scheme should be worked out to enable the residents to eventually own the flats,” he added.
