DAR-NegOr clarifies CARP implementation

piaDUMAGUETE CITY, Oct. 21 (PIA) – Negros Oriental Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer (PARO) Atty. Louie Naranjo clarified that the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) did not discontinue the implementation of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).

“What expired last June 30, 2013 was the issuance of the notice of coverage,” Naranjo disclosed during a briefing with the members of Association of Negros Oriental Public Information Officer (ANOPIO) in Dumaguete City.

Naranjo explained that DAR can no longer issue notice of coverage to compulsory acquired land holdings but it can still provide notice of coverage to landowners that will voluntarily sell their land to the department.

The issuance of the notice is the first step in DAR’s land acquisition and distribution process.

Naranjo made the clarification to shed light on claims by some stakeholders that the implementation of CARP has already ended.

Naranjo assured agrarian reform beneficiaries in the province that land acquisition process will still go on to landowners who already received notice of coverage from DAR.

On the other hand, the implementation of CARP might just go beyond 2016.  Engr. Marlon Galon of DAR told government information officers on the possibility that the department will be able to issue notice of coverage to landowners until June 30, 2016.

This if members of the House of Representatives will pass the CARP Extension Bill No. 4296 which is certified urgent by President Aquino. This bill was already approved on third and final reading in the the Senate.

With this, DAR will still process claims beyond 2016 or until the termination of land acquisition and distribution activities, Galon adds.  

Meanwhile, as of September 30, 2014, DAR-Negros Oriental has already distributed 105, 562.1260 hectares of land holdings to 52,130 agrarian reform beneficiaries in the province. This is equivalent to two hectares for each beneficiary. (mbcn/ral/PIA7-NegOr)
