DAR Information Officer Aileen Villaseca said the review aims to update and improve the LAD database, determine critical information about each landholding, classify landholdings into workable and problematic and determine the type of interventions needed to move them.
During its assessment, DAR Secretary Virgilio delos Reyes urged all DAR employees to do what needs to be done to improve and speed up the processes in the acquisition and distribution of land for the farmers and what is due under the law.
DAR Secretary further said that what he is trying to do in the next two years is to process Claim Folders really fast and more accurate so that landowners affected by the program can receive their compensation promptly.
The claim folder review also meant to analyze individual landholdings targeted for acquisition in order to track its progress and address problems.
With this, the DAR enables to institute national solutions to problems of delayed land acquisition and distribution process, DAR official explained.
Villaseca said the assessment activity was participated in by the DAR Municipal Offices staff, provincial processors and encoders of the provincial office. (www.ugnayan.com)
