MB: Small agricultural land in Perlis can be issued with title

KANGAR: Small agricultural land of less than an acre (0.4ha) in size in the state can now be issued with ownership title, Perlis Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Md Isa Sabu said on Tuesday, Mar 22.

He said the new ruling, effective from January this year, was to reduce too many names being listed on each of the land titles.

Earlier, the state government did not issue titles for agricultural lands of less then an acre, he told reporters at his office here.

Md Isa said since the implementation of the new ruling, many land ownership certificates had been issued to applicants.

Commenting on the high prices of houses in Perlis, he said among others it was due to the cost in preparing building sites and the state land and forest committee had been asked to come up with a new formula to control the cost. — Bernama
