KUALA TERENGGANU (Jan 25): The Terengganu government is now using Google services to detect illegal occupation of government-owned land in the state.
Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said said this was the state government's latest approach to overcome the problem.
"The Land and Mineral Office (PTG) has always conducted land monitoring activities through Google," he told reporters after chairing the state executive council weekly meeting here on Wednesday.
Starting this year, Ahmad said the state government would also take stern action against those involved in illegal occupation of land, including civil servants.
"The state secretary has also issued a circular to remind the civil servants not to get involved in such activities," he said.
Meanwhile, the menteri besar said the state government had processed and solved 9,916 or 99.82 per cent of the applications for illegally occupied land in Terengganu over the past three years.
He said it was hoped that the rest of the applications would be solved by next month.
In another development, Ahmad said the state government would also reacquire the 27-hectare land in Kampung Guntong and Kampung Tasik Setiu to build flood deviation channels and other drainage and irrigation facilities.
He said the project would involve a cost of RM1.8 million and 120 plots of land.
"The project will be able to prevent floods which were rampant in the two villages," he added. — Bernama
