    MALACCA: Malacca Green Technology Corporation (MGTC), in collaboration with the Malacca state government is aiming to make it compulsory for all property developers in the state to comply with the 'Malacca Green Seal' (MGS) requirements in all development projects .
    MGTC chief executive officer S. Chandru said under this initiative, all premises or buildings to be developed must obtain the green building certificate based on conditions set under MGS, in line with efforts to make Malacca a Green Technology Urban State by the year 2020.
    "For a start we will enforce the terms on new areas or buildings including the Hang Tuah Jaya Green Town in Ayer Keroh, Malacca World Solar Valley in Alor Gajah, state and federal government buildings and other new buildings willing to participate," he told reporters here yesterday.
    Meanwhile the Malacca Fire and Rescue Department has so far identified about 100 out of 300 premises in the state were still without a fire certificate (FC).
    Its director Kamarulzaman Malik Abdullah said of the 100 premises, three had been charged while the rest were still in the process of applying or being investigated under the Fire Services Act 1988 (Act 341).
    "We have already issued notices on the premises which have been identified and we will not compromise with building owners who violate the rules," he told reporters after a monthly assembly here yesterday. — Bernama
