Residents of Kampung Penan Muslim Batu 10 told to request for land title
RESIDENTS of Kpg Penan Muslim Batu 10 in Bintulu without land titles should come forward to the Land and Survey Department to request for one.
Assistant Minister of Urban Planning, Land Administration and Environment Datu Len Talif Salleh said this at the State Legislative Assembly yesterday when responding to a question by Majang Renggi ( BN- Samalaju).
“For those who have not yet had land title issued yet, they should come forward and request for one. And once they request, they will be given one out shortly as their houses already exist on the land.”
He explained that the land at Kpg Penan Muslim Batu 10 had already been surveyed and divided into 322 residential lots and that 186 land titles had already been issued and handed over to owners under Section 18 of the State Land Code.
For other residents of Bintulu Division with missing land titles for their residences, Len Talif advised them to directly contact the Land and Survey office to discuss and resolve the ownership of their land.
Responding to another question raised by Majang regarding the status of lots 71, 382, 619 and 382 in Bintulu, Len Talif explained that the lots in question had either been classified as state land or NCR land.
“The lots 71, 382, 619 and 382 stated are likely to refer to Lot 71 Block 33, Lot 384 Block 33, Lot 619 and Lot 382 Block 27 from the Kemena land district respectively. Lot 71, 382 and 619 are registered as state land while lot 382 is one of the residential lots that have been measured through a traditional village measurement programme for a Muslim village.
“Therefore, the status of this land is subject to NCR rights.”
