BACOLOD CITY -- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) targets the distribution of 26,000 hectares before the end of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program in June, an official said.


Florentino D. Seladan, DAR Western Visayas assistant regional director, said they have hired more personnel to fast track the distribution.

Of the 26,100 hectares, 14,600 are in northern Negros Occidental, while 11,500 hectares are in southern Negros Occidental.



"This year is a promising one for DAR, especially with the hiring of 791 new personnel to address the manpower problem and to fast-track land distribution," Mr. Seladan said.

DAR-Negros Occidental records show that, as of this year, there are at least 5,000 agrarian reform beneficiaries in the province, but some of them have yet to receive their Certificate of Land Ownership.

On Tuesday, members of peasant group Task Force Mapalad Negros Occidental staged a lightning protest outside Malacañang Palace calling for the immediate distribution of land to their members.

Alberto Jayme, the group’s president, earlier told BusinessWorld that DAR should immediately issue notices of coverage to 83 landholdings in Negros Occidental. --Adrian P. Nemes III
