DAR V holds joint consultation meeting for the legal and operations sectors

news reg 1 pix 1 feb 26 2018The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Bicol Region lauded the Operations and Legal sectors for initiating the recently-concluded Joint Consultation-Meeting between two groups to discuss issues and concerns regarding the implementation of agrarian reform in the region.

“The Operations and Legal sectors should continue to meet regularly to defuse conflicts in the field and find effective ways of resolving them. Field personnel should not only be the one to know; whatever issues that arise at their level should be relayed immediately to the regional level, to the head of office, specifically, for us to help devise immediate solutions,” DAR-Bicol Regional Director Rodolfo Pangilinan said.

Sustaining this practice, he added, would help boost the accomplishments of DAR-Bicol.

The most notable topic tackled during the one-day consultation is the Memorandum Circular No. 03 series of 2016 and its salient features. 

The circular seeks to ensure uniformity in the procedures, documentation, and payment on land transfer claims.news reg 1 pix 2 feb 26 2018

Atty. Leo Miguel A. Ramos, chief of the DAR-Bicol Legal Division, explained that since said MC focuses on the forms and documentary requirements, it is beneficial to know the equivalent documents that may be used or be applied in case there is an absence of original documents.

“Considering that the Legal Division bases its actions on the documents or evidence submitted, harmonization of the policy guidelines should be applied. This way, the process of documentation and payment of land transfer claims and any other transfer actions would be a lot easier,” he said.

Similarly, Assistant Regional Director for Operations Samuel S. Solomero said that the meeting would also give the two sectors a chance to discuss Administrative Order (AO) No. 5 series of 2017 or the New Implementing Guidelines Governing the Compulsory Acquisition of all Agricultural Lands with Pending Proceedings or Cases.

“It is necessary to discuss the gray areas of AO No. 05 series of 2017 and resolve the same. We will brainstorm and come up with recommendations on this AO. Inputs are needed especially from the high-LAD province of Camarines Sur,” ARDO Solomero said, adding that other agenda like the latest memorandum issued by the central office, and plans for 2018 would be tackled.

Also discussed was the PARPOs’ Conference to understand the status of fund of the Land Tenure Services Program for this year, among others.

Pangilinan said that with the reduced budget for the LTSP, the region must find ways or devise sound plans to be able to defray the cost of activities and meet the targets. (MTV General/DAR-V)
