Selangor gave steep discounts for fire station land

Selangor Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali said the state government had given a 75 percent discount on the land premium for two plots of land earmarked for the construction of fire and rescue stations in Setia Alam and Bukit Rahman Putra, Shah Alam.
He said the market price for Setia Alam site amounted to RM19.9 million (RM1,700 per square metre) while in Bukit Rahman Putra, it was RM9.7 million (RM1,200 per sq m).
According to him, the original owners of the two sites were a property developer who handed the land to the state government. It was later sought by the federal land commissioner for the fire stations.
Mohamed Azmin said Article 83 (2) of the Federal Constitution provides for land alienation to the federal government in exchange for payments equal to market value.

"The 75 percent discount on the sites (meant for the) fire stations in Setia Alam and Bukit Rahman Putra resulted in the state government losing revenue or income of RM22.2 million but it is willing to bear the loss for the sake of the people," he said in a statement today.
He was responding to claims by Urban Wellbeing, Housing, and Local Government Minister Noh Omar that the state government was charging high premium for both sites.
According to Noh, the land premium amounting to RM5 million for the Setia Alam site and RM2.4 million for the one in Bukit Rahman Putra was very high, considering that the cost to build both stations was only about RM5 million.
