DAR acting on sale of CARP lands

visayan dailyProvincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Lucrecia Taberna yesterday said the Department of Agrarian Reform-Negros Occidental 2 is strengthening its campaign against the illegal sale, transfer and leasing of lands awarded to Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries.

Taberna said the department has bulked up its campaign after receiving reports of rampant “prenda-arriendo” in Southern Negros.

As part of the massive campaign, the provincial office posted tarpaulins in barangays, cities and municipalities covered by DAR-Neg. Occ. 2 to spread awareness among ARBs and residents.

“The department 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 under Administrative Order No. 7, series of 2011, as amended,” she said.

Under the law, engaging in such illegal activities can be a ground for the disqualification of a farmer to become a beneficiary of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program, she also said.*KBC
