DENR Kalinga approves 1,184 land titles
Tabuk City, Kalinga (29 May) -- The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) provincial office here approved a total of 1,184 land titles under the free patent application and are now at the Register of Deeds (ROD) for registration and distribution.
OIC Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer,Engr. Ricardo Dang-ad such titles cover residential lots and agricultural lands. He said their office also worked on areas surveyed under cadastral land survey.
He said DENR Kalinga will target the same number of titles this year. "We are on ground survey and hope to meet the same target at the end of the year," Dang-iw said adding that the sudden increase of land owners applying for title is due to the expansion of agriculture activities in idle alienable and disposable lands.
Dang-iw called on land owners to visit DENR and request for survey and titling of their property to establish security and true ownership of the real estate. "And the greater advantage is that the property will serve as business capital whenever one plans to engage in profit ventures," he quipped.
The issuance of land titles will also help government in its revenue generation campaign since land owners are also obliged to pay taxes," Dang-iw stressed. (PIA) [top]
