Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, the Works Minister of Malaysia, has announced the plans to provide new buildings of three or four storeys for Tamil national type primary schools operating in old buildings in the country and equip all Tamil schools with computer laboratories. He said that so far this year, the government had approved more than RM15 million to replace the old buildings at 17 Tamil schools. Of the allocation, RM6.9 million has been disbursed while the remainder would be given out in January next year. Since 1980, up to 76 Tamil schools had been rebuilt and more would be replaced with new buildings. The government had also approved an allocation of RM1.3 million to build an additional building for the Rawang school for which a tender would be called on October 31. The Minister said that the improvement was necessary as the enrolment of Tamil schools had exceeded 100,000.
