by Ben Moses Ebreo
Aritao, Nueva Vizcaya (May 27) -- Residents of barangay Landingan in Nagtipunan town in Quirino province recently received 280 free patent titles from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources(DENR) in Cagayan Valley region.
Benjamin Tumaliuan, DENR regional executive director said the activity is part of their thrust to facilitate and hasten the processing of free patent titles among recipients in the region to encourage their support to forest protection efforts in Cagayan Valley.
"We are now directly processing applications within the barangay level to hasten their distribution and help the recipients on their claims," Tumaliuan told mediamen here.
He said the present thrust of processing free patent titles within the barangays is part of their transformation from doing the traditional process of free patent titles into actual application in the barangay level.
He said another 300 free patent titles are scheduled to be distributed in Quirino province next month. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
