DAR bares 2014 mid-year feat in SurSur

piaTANDAG CITY, July 14 (PIA) – Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer (PARO) Benjamin Mataksil bared the 2014 mid-year accomplishment report of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Provincial Office in Surigao del Sur. 

It covers three operational areas:  Land Tenure Services (LTS), Agrarian Legal Services (ALS), and Technical Advisory Support Services (TASS).

Mataksil, as usual, has put premium on Land Acquisition and Distribution (LAD) under the LTS, which aims to achieve 3,338 hectares until the end of the year.

Under the LAD, he said that as yet only 24 percent or equivalent to 807 hectares was hit, breaking down this as follows:  749 hectares of new lands for acquisition and distribution during the current year or just equivalent to 40 percent of the 1,860-hectare target; and 58 hectares or equivalent to just four percent of the set goal of 1,478 hectares which was said to be already in the pipeline for distribution next year.

But, early this year, Mataksil assured that the target can be hit.

Meanwhile, the DAR here has posted 85 percent overall on the achievement on ALS especially on Adjudication of Agrarian Reform Cases (AARC) which refers to the execution/implementation of the no. of resolutions, decisions, and orders.

ALS involves planning and programming of legal information for effective delivery of legal services and assistance to agrarian reform beneficiaries and landowners and adjudication of agrarian reform cases.

On the other hand, the said office has also made a significant leap on particular targets for the TASS, although the data shows a lot more has still to be done.

TASS concerns with the programming and development of agrarian reform program beneficiaries, agrarian reform beneficiaries organization, and agrarian reform communities. (NGBT/Greg Tataro Jr., Radyo ng Bayan/PIA-Surigao del Sur)
