49 Cadiz ARBS re­ceive Cloas, in­stalled

Sun Star Bacolod - - Business -

THE Depart­ment of Agrar­ian Re­form (DAR) in Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal - North has dis­trib­uted cer­tifi­cates of land own­er­ship award (Cloas) and in­stalled 49 farmer-ben­e­fi­cia­ries in Cadiz City.

This is through the Com­pre­hen­sive Agrar­ian Re­form Pro­gram (Carp) of the agency.

The re­cip­i­ent-agrar­ian re­form ben­e­fi­cia­ries (ARBS) will share the 19.5403-hectare lot previ- ously owned by Melissa Abe­lido lo­cated at Ha­cienda Va­len­cia in Barangay Bur­gos.

Mu­nic­i­pal Agrar­ian Re­form Pro­gram Of­fi­cer Agnes Calan­tas, who led the distri­bu­tion and in­stal­la­tion rites yes­ter­day, re­minded the farm­ers of their obli­ga­tion to pay the amor­ti­za­tions and land taxes to the Land Bank of the Philip­pines and lo­cal gov­ern­ment, re­spec­tively.

Calan­tas also told farmer-ben­e­fi­cia­ries to cul­ti­vate the awarded land thereby im­prov­ing their liveli­hood.

“They should not re­sort to leas­ing or sell­ing. Do­ing such pro­hib­ited ac­tiv­i­ties could be grounds for dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion from the pro­gram,” she added.

Aside from farmer-ben­e­fi­cia­ries, the distri­bu­tion and in­stal­la­tion rites were also at­tended by barangay of­fi­cials and per­son­nel of the DAR in Cadiz CITY./EPN
