Land Tenure Services is operationalized either through land acquisition and distribution (LAD) or leasehold operations. LAD involves the redistribution of government and private agricultural lands to landless farmers and farm workers. It secures farmers' tenure, promotes social equity, and provides them with necessary productive resources needed to ensure their economic viability and productivity. Leasehold operations, on the other hand, is the alternative non-land transfer scheme. It covers all tenanted agricultural lands such those in the retained areas, not yet acquired for distribution under CARP, and those which may be validly covered under existing laws.
