PETALING JAYA (Nov 25): The Selangor Lands and Mines Department has removed its daily quota of registering land transactions, according to a report by FMT News.
The news portal reported director Yusri Zakariah saying in a letter that the department will now allow “limitless transactions” with its “Smartbox” system from today.
Yusri said the decision “would enable all parties to carry out land transactions and other matters with the department and help the state revive its economy in the real estate sector”.
It was reported earlier this month that the Selangor Bar Committee called on the department to hike the daily quota for land transactions, “even though it had raised the limit from 200 to 300”.
“We need a higher daily quota or no restriction at all in registering land transactions as the state is a vibrant economic hub,” Its chairman, V Murali told FMT News back then.
The news portal reported at the time that the “Smartbox” system allowed only 300 daily transactions to be conducted at the department’s HQ in Shah Alam.
This is because just 30% of the staff were at work in the office owing to CMCO SOPs.
