DAR distributes e-titles to Bicolano agrarian beneficiaries


The Department of Agrarian Reform has distributed electronic land titles to a total of 1,730 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) in the Bicol region.

DAR Bicol Regional Director Reuben Theodore C. Sindac led the distribution of e-titles covering 2,858 hectares of land with Collective Certificates of Land Ownership Award (CCLOAs).

The e-titles were issued under the agency’s Support to Parcelization of Lands for Individual Titling (SPLIT) Project.

The said project aims to improve land tenure security and provide individual land titles to those who have been awarded CCLOAs.

“This was made possible by the Project SPLIT and indicates a brighter direction of the project in the region,” Sindac said.

Sidac stressed that the distribution activities are anchored on the plans of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. “to empower the farmers and boost the agricultural sector.”

Sindac also reported that from March 2021 to December 2022, the region validated 34,657 hectares of land with CCLOAs, of which 25,960 hectares have been issued with Approved Survey Plans in preparation for individual titling in the upcoming months.

Masbate has achieved the highest accomplishment with 985.33 hectares. Camarines Norte finished second with 473.14 hectares, while Camarines Sur I closely followed with 455.32 hectares. Camarines Sur II accomplished 368.59 hectares, Sorsogon achieved 336.11 hectares, and Albay and Catanduanes ended with 197.87 hectares and 41.84 hectares, respectively.

“These numbers indicate a brighter direction of the Project SPLIT in the region, as evidenced by the recent accomplishments of the different provinces,” Sindac said.
