Assurance to Felda settlers


He said there had been concern among  settlers who were afraid that the listing would affect their land ownership as well as bonus, duit raya (Hari Raya money) and Koperasi Permodalan Felda dividends.
PEKAN The government guarantees that Felda settlers will not lose their assets and incentives after the listing of Felda Global Ventures Sdn Bhd on Bursa Malaysia by mid-2012, said Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Ahmad Maslan.

"We would like to give an assurance that settlers will continue to enjoy what they are receiving now.

"Not only that, they will get  more profits.

"We  will not touch their (settlers) land," he said after attending the Malaysian Felda Youth Council's Semai Bakti programme at Felda Chini 2, near here, yesterday.

He added that the people's interests came first in any action the government took.
