HACIENDA WORKERS NOW LANDOWNERS

manila bulletin blue logoBacolod City, Negros Occ. (PNA) – Seventy-eight agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) from three Victorias City barangays received Monday their certificates of land ownership award (CLOAs) from the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).

The ARBs, from Barangays 15, 15-A, and 18-A in Hacienda Florencia, were granted 119.24 hectares of land acquired by DAR through compulsory arbitration. Hacienda Florencia workers were organized into the Florencia Workers Association in 2005 with Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program notice of coverage (NOC) issued to former landowner Victorias Milling Co. in 2006.

In June 2012, the Victorias Agricultural Land Corporation was issued the same NOC. A year after installation, ARBs

are obliged to pay their amortization to the Land Bank of the Philippines and land taxes to their respective local government units. Failure to comply are grounds for CLOAs cancellation.
