Land for Port Klang settlers

PORT KLANG: Nearly 200 urban pioneers from three separate Malay villages are one step closer to finally getting land titles after receiving application forms from Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim last Saturday.

The villagers can also opt to pay a premium of just RM1,000 under the state Private Home Ownership Scheme or full premiums of between RM8,000 and RM20,000, depending on the size of the land their homes are built on.

The Private Home Ownership Scheme was established by Selangor to help make it affordable for home owners to extend their leases or  obtain titles.

However, full premiums will have to be paid if the property is sold.

Yaakob Ibrahim, who settled at Kampung Sungai Sireh Tambahan 26 years ago, was among those to get the 5A Form from the Menteri Besar. 

“We’ve waited for many years for the land title,” the 55-year-old pensioner told Selangor Times.

He came from Alor Star three decades ago and found a job as a driver for national logistics company Kontena Nasional Bhd at the port.

The 232.63-acre land that Yaakob and others like him settled in three decades ago used to belong to the Railway Assets Corporation.

Khalid said the land has since been surrendered back to the state.

Out of the 195 urban pioneers who received the 5A Form, 96 are from Yaakob’s village, 22 from Kampung Sungai Sireh Utama and 77 from Kampung Sungai Sireh Tambahan Dua.

Apart from the three villages, settlers at Kampung Keretapi, which is also located at the former railway land, had also received the 5A Form earlier in May from Selat Klang assemblyperson Dr Halimah Ali.

Khalid announced last Saturday that 63.5 acres of the land from the four villages would be gazetted as Malay Reserve Land.

Under the previous state administration, the Selangor Development Corporation had redeveloped 119.13 acres of the land to relocate the settlers to 1,656 units of low-cost apartments.

Also at the event were Dr Halimah, state executive councillor Iskandar Samad, Kapar member of Parliament S Manikavasagam and Klang District Officer Datuk Bakhtiar Hussin.
