Schools need to pay land premium by month end

IPOH: The Perak government has asked Chinese independent schools, Islamic religious schools and the Perak Foundation to settle premium payments for farmland given to them last year to help fund their yearly expenses.

State Local Government and Non-Muslim Affairs Committee chairman Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon said failure to do so would result in their land being taken back by the state government.

"We have yet to receive any form of response from those involved on this matter," he told reporters during a news conference after meeting with principals of Tamil and Chinese vernacular schools in Perak, here.

On July 21 last year, the state government announced the distribution of 2,023 hectares of farmland in Gunung Besout, Sungkai, to these schools. — Bernama
