DAR installs 23 farmers in Bacolod City
The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), through the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), has recently installed 23 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) in Bacolod City.
The ARBs were installed in the 8-hectare land previously owned by Janet De Luzuriaga situated at Barangay Granada.
DAR Municipal Agrarian Reform Program Officer (MARPO) Edwin Sanchez, who led the installation rites, said that the ARBs were among the recipients of certificates of land ownership award (CLOAs) distributed by President Rodrigo Duterte in March in Sagay City. The same ARBs also received cellphones as promised by the President.
Sanchez, in his message, reminded the farmer-beneficiaries of their obligation to diligently pay their land amortizations and taxes as the new landowners.
He said that the awarded lot cannot be leased, transferred or sold within 10 years from the time it was issued.
