Does KHSB still hold a housing developer license?

Kumpulan Hartanah Selangor Berhad (KHSB) with its vision as "The Flagship Property Group of the State of Selangor" is known to be the investment arm of the state government involves actively in property developement including housing development.
Amongst its highly publisized housing or mix-development projects are Astaka Height in Pandan Jaya, Bandar Armada Putra in West Port, Templer Park Resort in Selayang and Taman Melawati Jaya in Kuala Selangor which had been launched in 2004.
However, even the Menteri Besar of Selangor, Dato Seri Dr Mohd Khir bin Toyo, does not name KHSB as one of the "Credible Developers" (Senarai Nama Pemaju Berwibawa), although its holding company, Kumpulan Darul Ehsan Berhad (KDEB) for which Khir Toyo is the chairman, is listed. What has happened?
I have done a search at the website of Ministry of Housing and Local Government, the housing developer licensing authority, and found that KHSB is not listed as a licensed housing developer. Again, what has happened?
My questions are:-
Firstly, did KHSB hold a housing developer license all these years?
Secondly, if the answer is yes, what has happened to the license?
Thirdly, if the answer is no, how did KHSB undertake the housing development projects all these years?

now recent worse news is Kumpulan Hartanah Selangor Berhad (KHSB) sold to GMB Construction, but the handing over of documentation is hock-up (The Star news 21 Jan 2008 - A snag over strata titles.

Now Astaka Heights owner became new victim, BRSB has stop doing rectify the defects works of Astaka Heights (which Defect Liability Period still valid) because the Management told the owner BRSB has sold to GMB Construction, and when call up GMB Construction nobody to follow-up on these.
