PM hands out RM563mil to Felda households

(The Star) – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Saturday handed out RM563mil to 112,635 Felda households under the third phase of windfall handouts specifically targeted at the young generation of settlers.

Each will receive RM5,000 each.

The handout is the final instalment promised by Najib earlier this year, in line with the move to channel profits made by listing Felda Global Ventures on the stock exchange.

The first handout of RM5,000 was given to the settlers and the second RM5,000 to their wives.
