SEREMBAN: The state government has directed district offices to cut red tape for faster approval of land applications.
Mentri Besar Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad said that stringent processing on land matters would only jeopardise the efforts to develop the state.
“I have asked district officers to study how to expedite the land processing system to help developers or landowners,” he said after chairing the state land and mines meeting here yesterday.
Isa said that at present processing of land applications was slow because of the delay in approving them.
He said that district offices had been told to return properties to owners who had settled their quit rent arrears.
