Agrarian office to install 348 beneficiaries

sunstarlogoTHE Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Iloilo is set to install 348 agrarian reform beneficiaries (Arbs) in one of the biggest land and farming area in the province on Wednesday.

Municipal agrarian reform officer Rodrigo Basa said the 427.31 hectares comprise a hacienda touching six villages in Sara are covered by two land titles of landowners Alfredo and Federico Sanson.

Of the total land area, 336.84 hectares are awarded to the ARBs with certificate of land ownership awards (CLOAS) issued by DAR.

However, some 16 unnamed civil law lessees filed a petition for cancellation of the CLOAS, by claiming they were not included in the DAR list of beneficiaries. The questioned land was covered by a Voluntary Offer to Sell (VOS) by the landowner in May 14, 1992.

The DAR official said a Writ of Installation was already issued in July 27, 2012 and they have no recourse but to install the beneficiaries despite the petition for CLOA cancellation.

The installation preparation will mobilize some 100 municipal and provincial policemen to safeguard the peace and order in the area with proper coordination with municipal officials particularly Mayor Neptali Salcedo.

The Dar has already awarded 675 CLOAS in the province of Iloilo including 366 pending CLOAS. A total of 4,459 hectares are targeted for distribution to qualified Arbs.
