SHAH ALAM, Feb 27 – An efficient and effective land management system, currently being implemented by the Selangor administration, has a positive impact on the state, said Sultan Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Alhaj.

In the royal address during the First Meeting of the Second Session of the 15th State Legislative Assembly today, His Royal Highness applauded the e-Tanah system’s implementation for the Selangor Land and Mines Office (PTGS) and the Land and District Offices in the state, starting from October last year.

“The enhancement of a transparent land management system will have a significant positive impact on all stakeholders involved.

“The digitalisation aspect would help in verification, planning, and monitoring processes, allowing for faster, periodic, and systematic updates,” said the Ruler.

The Sultan also welcomed PTGS’ initiative to redefine rocks and minerals found in Selangor, ensuring that fair market value is followed.

“This redefinition will involve higher royalty rates, in line with the rates set by the Selangor State Mineral Enactment and the relevant circulars still in force,” said His Royal Highness.

Additionally, the Ruler expressed appreciation for the state administration’s commitment to solving the state border issues with Kuala Lumpur, Pahang, Negeri Sembilan, and Putrajaya.

“To date, Selangor’s success in finalising the land demarcation with Pahang, Negeri Sembilan, and the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya is something to be proud of.

“Therefore, further efforts must be made by the relevant parties to verify and resolve the remaining border disputes with the state,” said the Sultan.

On February 5, Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said Selangor and Kuala Lumpur aim to resolve their demarcation issues by 2025.

He said the state and the Federal Territories Ministry had discussed the border issues in 19 localities in areas including Gombak, Ampang, and Hulu Langat, with several other areas still under discussion.
