78 ARBs finally new land owners

visayan dailyGood things finally come to those agrarian reform beneficiaries who waited for a decade to get hold of their Certificates of Land Ownership and be installed as new land owners.

Seventy eight ARBs from barangays XV, XV-A, XVIII-A all of Victorias City received their CLOAs from the Department of Agrarian Reform yesterday and are now ready to cultivate their 119.24 hectares of land acquired by DAR through Compulsory Arbitration, a press release from the Philippine Information Agency said.

The Notice of Coverage under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program was issued to former land owner Victorias Milling Co. in August of 2006 then in March 2002 it was also issued to the Bank of the Philippine Islands, and in June 2012, the Victorias Agricultural Land Corporation was issued the same NOC.

Until September 2005, the workers of Hacienda Florencia were organized into the Florencia Workers Association with Ramon Lavides Sr. as president.

An emotional Lavides thanked the DAR and the Damayan ng mga Manggagawa, Mangingisda at Magsasaka or DAMMMBA, a Non-Government Organization who helped them acquire their land.

Meanwhile, Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Teresita Mabunay reminded the ARBs of their obligations one year after the installation.

ARBs or ARB organizations are obliged to pay their amortization to the Land Bank of the Philippines, land taxes to their respective local government units and failure to comply are grounds for disqualification and cancellation of their CLOAs.*
