49 Cadiz ARBS receive Cloas, installed
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
