thatland swaps to resolve overlapping land claims have been done inother states, but this will be thefrst in Selangor.“Te state has agreed to theland move because o this specialcase. As this has been going on ormore than 50 years, we had tosolve it eventually,” he said.Ng added that the move was a win-win situation or all parties asthe residents would receive landtitles and the amount o Malay re-serve land in the state would bemaintained.He said the land in Sungai en-gah, where the reserve land will bemoved to, is vacant and can be de- veloped at any time should theneed arise.Te process o getting the titlesor the 200 Bagan Sekinchanhouseholds will take three years asthe State Economic Planning Unitneeds to determine the boundarieso each home in the village.“Tey would need to go and re-measure the land in the village sothat we know which part belongsto whom,” said Ng.Ng attributed the overlap to anadministrative blunder whenboundaries were drawn.State executive councillor EanYong Hian Wah, whose portolioincludes New Villages, said thereare a ew other villages in the statethat ace the same issue.He said the Bagan NakhodaOmar ishing village in SabakBernam was another case whereland exchange would be the onlysolution.Meanwhile, the adjacent iverows o households on Lorong 1to 5 o Bagan Sekinchan have re-cently been oered ownership o their land.Te 183 households were, orgenerations, denied land titles be-cause they were on stilts.However, the state governmentgranted them their land titles lastmonth.

Selangor’s RM1,000leasehold renewal and land title policyis meant to help owners stay in theirhomes and not prot rom the sale o the properties.“Te state devised this scheme tohelp people who cannot aord to paythe premium to secure a land title orextend their lease,” said Faekah Husin, political secretary to the MenteriBesar.Tey include settlers who have beenholding emporary Occupational Li-cences (OL) or decades. Under the policy, their rights to continue occupy-ing the land will be protected.Many o these settlers cannot aordto pay the land premium to convert theOLs to regular titles.“hat’s why we created this newscheme. Oherwise, they would

continue to be squatters,” said Faekah.Owners are required to pay theremaining land premium i they intendto sell their properties or secure bankloans.But MCA has rubbished thescheme, claiming it disallowed homeowners rom selling or transerring their properties except to next-o-kin.“You must look at the spirit o thescheme … this is to help them keep theirhomes, not or them to make a prot.I the owner wants to sell or mortgagethe property, then he or she should beable to pay the ull premium,” saidFaekah.She said the state will be creating a land bank to dierentiate betweenresidential owners who have only paid RM1,000 and those who have paid in ull.Faekah said a 30% discount is givento those who pay the premium in ull within six months o the approval o their applicationsOn the increasing cost o land premiums, Faekah said it is due to rising  property prices in Selangor as land premiums are based on market value.MCA has said the state should waiveland premiums to prove its sincerity inhelping the people, but Faekah said this was not practical.Land premium is an importantsource o revenue or the state, she said. When asked whether the newscheme contravenes the National LandCode as alleged by MCA, Faekah saidSection 76 (c), (d) and (e) o the Code provide the state power to grant landtitles to owners who do not pay the premium in ull by imposing certainconditions.She added that despite theopposition’s criticism, public responseto the scheme has been positive.
