Land premium refund

Local Government and Housing Minister Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian advised land owners to apply for land premium refund if they have not done so by Dec 31.

Dr Sim said the land premium refund is an initiative by the Sarawak government slated for those involved in the Resettlement Scheme (SPS) or Village Expansion Scheme (SPK) to help the poor.

A total of 467 landowners in Batu Kawah had received their refunds. 161 from the Batu Kawa constituency, 97 from Stampin area and 33 in Sungai Apong have not submit theirs.

Recently, Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan announced the deadline for the land premium refund applications to be extended to Dec 31, from the initial Oct 31 deadline, because the owners of the 1,985 landlots in Sarawak entitled to the refund had yet to come forward.

The payable land premium by landowners in SPS or SPK is capped at RM2,500 by the Sarawak government, and it can be paid in instalments over a span of 10 years.

The entitled landowners who wish to apply for the premium refunds should bring along 3 copies of their personal documents, letter of probate, the personal documents of the land administrators in the event that the original landowners had passed away, payment receipts or any payment-related documents, the first page of the bank account book, and land title documents, to any SUPP service centres in Sarawak.
