DAR SNegOcc reaches all time high land distribution

piaNEGROS OCCIDENTAL, July 14 (PIA6) - - Since the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program with Extension and Reform or CARPer in July 2009, the Department of Agrarian Reform Negros South reached its all time high of land distribution target at 1,509 hectares.

For the first semester of the year, DAR South was able to distribute 1,509 hectares of compensable agricultural land.

Assistant Regional Director for Operations Florentino Siladan explained that although it fell short of its target for the period, but these are all compensable agricultural land, which means these are private agricultural lands that were acquired and distributed to agrarian reform beneficiaries unlike in other regions which were distributing government owned lands.

Siladan posed a challenge to DAR personnel during their anniversary celebration to reach their target for land distribution, double their efforts and not to retreat or surrender.

Meanwhile, Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II for South Negros Lucrecia Taberna took up the challenge as it is their mandate to complete the remaining land balances and so far has no more problem area because contentious cases have been solved.

According to Siladan, Negros South has around 4,000 hectare target for land distribution for 2014.

Siladan said no less than Agrarian Reform Secretary Virgilio delos Reyes challenged that nothing is expected of the personnel but to deliver their targets

Realistically, we need the support of partner agencies like DENR, LBP which plays a big role in the valuation and equally is the support of Registry of Deeds.

“Realistically, we need the support of partner agencies like Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Land Bank Philippines which play big roles in the valuation and equally is the support of Registry of Deeds to reach our target,” Siladan added. *(JCM/EAD-PIA6 Negros Occidental)
