Land transfer done in a day, thanks to e-tanah

THE e-tanah online system, which allows the transfer of land titles within a day, has helped to improve revenue collection, Deputy Natural Resources and Environment Minister Tan Sri Joseph Kurup said.

He said the ministry had collected RM960,000 through the online system from Oct 1, 2007 to Oct 4. Kurup said the programme was first used in Penang in 2005, in which all land office in the state used the electronic system for land transaction matters. He added the system had been extended to Malacca and Ne­­gri Sembilan from December 2008. Kurup told Azan Ismail (PKR-Indera Mahkota) that the objective of the system was to improve efficiency, transparency and the delivery and to establish a single database for information on land matters.

“Such a programme will also reduce bureaucracy,’’ he said in reply to points raised during the debate on the ministry at the committee stage. He added the system was being monitored by the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (Mampu). Kurup said the e-tanah application also took into account of the security features for the interest of land owners.

Among the security features were the implementation of digital signatures, security posture assessment, while a disaster recovery centre was set up to provide support to the main database. On flash floods, Kurup said allocation to counter flash flood problems came under the purview of the National Security Council. He also said currently, there was no allocation to prevent soil erosion at the beaches in Port Dickson and Sabak Bernam. The Department of Drainage and Irrigation would apply for the allocation from the Government, he added.
