Marion Abella, provincial agrarian reform program officer II, said DAR has sent-off 13 validators and two survey teams to look into the relocation and subdivision survey of affected areas in  Columbio  in  Sultan Kudarat and  adjacent  municipality of  Tulunan in North Cotabato.

The ground validation and relocation survey will be conducted from Mondays to Fridays  from May until July, 2015.  (DEDoguiles-PIA 12  with report  from ROrejudos/DAR North Cotabato)
