PM: Up to state govts to give land

It is up to the state governments to give available empty lots in their planned land use to second generation Felda settlers, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

In a written reply to Datuk Azalina Othman Said (BN – Pengerang), he said the Government never broke its promise in providing land ownership.

“Up till now, there are as many as 112,635 settlers in the country and 75,747 or 67.3% had been given ownership titles. A total of 36,888 or 32.7% of settlers have not receive the titles,” he said.

As of March 1, 13,264 ownership applications had been sent to state governments for approval, he added.

Najib said every Felda settler was allocated 4ha of land for farming and about 0.1ha for their living quarters.

According to the agreement between settlers and the state government, settlers were given land ownership documents when they had repaid the development costs that the Government had initially forked out for them, he said.

The development costs included that for jungle clearing, estate development, foundation preparation and building houses, and taxes, Najib said.
