Felda chairman Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad said each settler received RM365.
"The dividend shows Felda's concern towards the welfare of settlers in the state," he told reporters after a FGVH qurban and dividend presentation ceremony in Felda Chalok Barat, here today.
Also present were Felda general manager Faizoull Ahmad and Terengganu Region general manager Abdul Malik Abdul Rani.
Mohd Isa said Felda spent RM45 million this year to pay FGVH dividends to 112,635 settlers nationwide.
A participant, Tengku Heng Ku Besar, 45, said the dividends proved Felda was sincere and refuted allegations made by the opposition.
For Terengganu Region Felda settlers chief, Mansor Mamat, 36, the settlers should not listen to the opposition but instead work hard for the future and be grateful for what they currently have.
