PIA Press Release

Ifugao Land Management Task Force provides information services on land registration

by Dan B. Codamon

Lagawe, Ifugao (20 June) -- To increase the awareness of the people and clarify controversies regarding their land ownership, the Ifugao Land Management and Development Task Force (ILMDTF) conducted and information drive on land registration and distributed land patents to grantees at the Capitol Building here recently.

The ILMDTF is composed of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), National Commission on Indigenous People (NCIP), Registry of Deeds (ROD) and the Provincial Government.

Land disputes and other issues regarding land ownership have long been a problem of this province because of certain national laws making them squatters of their own properties.

But with the struggle for autonomy of the Cordillera Region and the passage of the Indigenous People's Right Act (IPRA), it gave hope to the Ifugaos with the repeal of some provisions of the National Laws providing them the opportunity to finally own their lands.

The DENR and the ROD discussed the steps on land registration and the requirements needed to have a title under the Register of Deeds while the DAR and the NCIP informed the participants the procedures on how to lay their claims under the IPRA Law and the Certificates of Land Ownership (CLOA) under the DAR.

The Task Force also distributed land patents to 338 patentees from the municipalities of Kiangan, Lamut and Asipulo who have earlier filed their claims and registration of their lands.

There were 228 beneficiaries from Kiangan involving 49.8101 hectares of land, 34 from Lamut consisting of 32.5641 hectares and 82 patentees from Asipulo with 54.3191 hectares.

The DAR also released some CLOAs while the NCIP distributed Certificates of Ancestral Domain Claim (CADC) and Certificates of Ancestral Domain Title (CADT) to qualified land owners. (PIA Ifugao) [top]
