TEBEDU, Aug 8: A perimeter survey of 554.3 hectares of Native Customary Rights (NCR) land will commerce this week among the agricultural plots of Kampung Lanchang and Kampung Labak Tungan in the Tebedu constituency.

According to a news report by the Sarawak Public Communication Unit (Ukas), its lawmaker Dr Simon Sinang Bada, had called on all affected landowners to work closely with the authorities so that survey works may be carried out smoothly like in Kampung Pichin, Kampung Jenan, Kampung Bantang, Kampung Nyabet, and Kampung Sungan.

Dr Sinang said the perimeter survey aimed to determine land ownership through demarcating land boundaries to facilitate the issuance of individual land titles.

Such exercise will also solve land disputes among villagers, said Dr Sinang recently in a dialogue with affected villagers.

For the record, a perimeter survey had been completed for 716 plots of land in three villages, namely Kampung Lanchang Sijo, Kampung Labak Tungan and Kampung Lanchang Sabai, under Section 18 of the Sarawak Land Code.

Meanwhile, Assistant Administrator of Sarawak Land and Survey Department Attin Rimpa said landowners are welcome to inspect their land and settle all land issues among themselves first before the beginning of the actual exercise. — DayakDaily
