IPOH: The amount of appointment numbers per day at the Perak State Land and Mines department (PTG) office will be doubled to reduce the queuing hours for dispatch riders and lawyers.

In a joint statement by the Perak State Land and Mineral (PTG), Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association and Kelab Kakitangan Firma Guaman Perak, they said there will be 600 daily appointments starting Wednesday (Nov 10).

"The office will allow 50 walk-in appointments and counters open until 4.30pm instead of 3pm.

"A special task force to solve the matter has been set up whereby it will also add more registrars and clerks as soon as possible," they said, adding that PTG had to reduce the appointment numbers earlier as staff were working from home during the last few movement control orders.

The Star had earlier this month reported that lawyers and dispatch riders had to wait between 10pm and 4am daily to get appointment numbers at the office.

Only 300 appointment numbers were available daily, where only 30 riders and lawyers were allowed to get the numbers.

They also said the PTG would also set up an E-Tanah website by Friday (Nov 12).

"The website will allow representatives from law firms to make appointments instead of having to queue at the office.

"The website is expected to be accessible by Monday (Nov 15).

"The Perak PTG takes this seriously and hopefully through our drastic actions, this issue will not happen again," they added.
