JERANTUT: Some 1,018 farmers in Cameron Highlands who previously operated on land with temporary occupation licence (TOL) status have been offered to continue their operations through a registered rental arrangement.

Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail said the land involved was part of the 5,526,219ha in three districts, namely Ulu Telom, Ringlet and Tanah Rata, which had previously been cultivated by the farmers.

“The offer letter will be issued in stages, with a tenant being offered a maximum area of approximately 1.2ha for a period of three years subject to certain conditions.

“Among the conditions is the Malaysian Good Agricultural Practices (MyGAP) certification for extending the lease term, ” he said after attending a meeting with Jerantut district community leaders here.

Wan Rosdy said the 5,526,219ha of land were divided into 78 blocks with 58 blocks in Ulu Telom, 14 blocks in Ringlet and six blocks in Tanah Rata.

Also present at the meeting were Pahang state secretary Datuk Seri Dr Sallehuddin Ishak and Pahang Land and Mines director Datuk Nazri Abu Bakar. — Bernama
