DAR-Negros Occidental steps up campaign vs illegal land transfer

sunstarlogoTHE Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Negros Occidental is strengthening its campaign against the illegal sale, transfer, and lease of land awarded to agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) in the province.

DAR-Negros Occidental II has posted tarpaulins in different barangays of cities and municipalities it covered, particularly in the south portion of the province, to remind farmer-beneficiaries of the conditions of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (Carp).

It stated that under Section 4 of Administrative Order No. 7, violations such as illegal sale, transfer, and lease of land are tantamount to necessary penalties including charges and disqualification from the program.

Lucrecia Taberna, provincial agrarian reform program officer of DAR-Negros Occidental II, said the agency has intensified its campaign after receiving reports on rampant “ariendohanay” or lease of awarded lands, specifically in the south.

Taberna said that DAR is not tolerating illegal sale, transfer, lease or any other form of conveyance by a beneficiary of the right of ownership, right to use, or any usufructuary right over the land acquired by virtue of being such beneficiary.

“Under the law, engaging in such illegal activities can be a ground for the disqualification of a farmer to become a beneficiary Carp,” she added.(EPN)
