DALAT: Residents of Kampung Brunei, Kampung Baru and Kampung Seberang received their land titles under Section 18 of the State Land Code.
Present to hand over the grant on Friday was Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development Minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah.
Speaking to our reporter after the programme, she said the same process will also be implemented in Kampung Kut Muara.
“With the land grant, the recipients will have absolute rights to their land. Therefore, no further disputes will occur.
“They can also withdraw from their Employees Provident Fund (EPF) savings to upgrade or build their own houses.
“This is what the villagers are waiting for. As the people’s representative, I, representing Dalat villagers, thank the government for bearing all the land surveying costs,” pointed out the Dalat assemblywoman.
Meanwhile, commenting on the current situation of Covid-19, Fatimah called on the public, especially the Dalat community, to continue to adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) so that the number of positive cases will continue to decline.
Touching on the vaccination programme in Dalat, she said so far, 82.7 percent of the 12,919 residents (who registered to receive vaccination) had received their first dose while another 51.5 percent had received their second dose.
