The provisional list of those awarded 380 plots of land in Maafushi Island of Kaafu Atoll has been published by the Maafushi Island Council. The council will now accept complaints regarding the list until 24 August.

The plots were awarded to residents of Maafushi with eligibility prioritised towards inhabitants and residents of the island, the council said. Applications for the plots, each measuring 2,000 square feet, were opened in March 2023.

The plots will be allotted from the government reclaimed 25 hectares on the south side of Maafushi, work on which was completed by Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) in 2021.
