KUALA LUMPUR: Terengganu will be the fourth state to develop the electronic land administration system or ‘e-Tanah’ after signing a concession agreement of the system with the Federal Government on Wednesday (June 29).
Energy and Natural Resources Minister Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan (pic) said the development of the e-Tanah system for the state is expected to be completed in two years and to be in use by 2024 for a period of 12 years.
"The e-Tanah system was successfully developed through a public-private partnership in 2021 and used in Perak beginning Feb 11, 2021, while the Federal Territories on Oct 29, 2021.
"Apart from that, the concession agreement was also inked with the Selangor government and is currently in the development process,” he said in his speech at the e-Tanah System Concession Agreement Signing Ceremony between the federal government, Terengganu government and Puncak Tegap Sdn Bhd here.
Also present were Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar and Energy and Natural Resources Ministry secretary-general Datuk Rosli Isa.
Takiyuddin said the ministry aimed to complete the signing of the concession agreement with other states this year so that the development of the system in those states could start immediately.
Through the agreement, Puncak Tegap Sdn Bhd is responsible for implementing the project and bearing all development and maintenance costs during the concession period of 14 years, namely two years to build the system and 12 years of operation. - Bernama
