The state government is proceeding with the Sabah Indigenous Land Services (Pantas) program to complete the Indigenous Customary Rights (NCR) survey works, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor said. He said the government of the state had undertaken to issue land titles to the people of Sabah with respect to all members of the state, regardless of race, religion or politics. “The Pantas program which has been implemented since 2011 is now being continued by the GRS-BN government, aware of the importance of issuing land titles specifically to indigenous people in rural areas, including Telupid.

“The approach to continue the Pantas program is also to ensure that the issuance of titles with Aboriginal Title (NT) status for lands in the NCR that have been occupied for a long time can be expedited to overcome the backlog in the application process. before that,” he said at a land titling ceremony at Telupid on May 14. Hajiji said the state government wanted the process of issuing land titles to be strengthened and intensified this year.” Last year (2021), the state government successfully surveyed 15,511.52 hectares (ha) of land for the natives of Sabah and designated 80 areas as village reserve land special,” he said.
