DBKL To Ensure Development In Malay Reserve Land On Par With Surrounding Areas

To ensure that development within Malay reserve land (MRL) areas is on par with its surrounding areas, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will focus on planning infrastructure development within MRL areas.

These include areas such as Segambut, Taman Datuk Keramat and Kampung Sungai Penchala, reported Bernama.

Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa noted that there is usually a disparity in terms of development between MRL areas and non-MRL areas.

This comes as there are several private investments within non-MRL areas, with the government improving infrastructure. Landowners within these areas also develop their properties.

“While for MRL areas, some owners did not invest or do not want to develop the land, then the infrastructure is not upgraded and eventually, there will be villages left behind in the city,” he said following a visit to Kampung Sungai Penchala.

“Hence, I want the departments involved in planning including DBKL, the land office and so on, to change their approach to focus on the development of MRL areas and traditional villages.”

Annuar shared that his ministry has agreed to utilise data from the Implementation and Coordination Unit between National Agencies (LAKSANA) when dealing with incomplete data relevant to urban poverty issues.

“Based on our experience, the data (on urban poverty) available is not standardised. There is data from the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Council (MAIWP), there is DBKL data and there is data also from e-Kasih,” he said.

“Hence, we have agreed to use the LAKSANA database, and all other agencies will provide information to LAKSANA so that a cross-check can be done in a focused manner, and no more groups are left behind.”
