DAR Chief to distribute e-titles to Eastern Visayas farmers

Agrarian Reform Secretary Conrado Estrella III is expected to distribute a total of 2,591 electronic titles (e-titles) to 1,839 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) comprising a total of 3,922 hectares in Eastern Visayas this Thursday, January 26, 2022, under the Support to Parcelization of Lands for Individual Titling or SPLIT Project of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).

Estrella will distribute the first batch of individual titles generated under the SPLIT Project at the Visayas State University-Tolosa Campus auditorium.

Estrella said the SPLIT project intends to fast-track the subdivision of collective certificates of land ownership award (CCLOAs) of about 1.3 million hectares of land nationwide.

“The SPLIT project was funded by the World Bank so that CCLOAs could be parceled and issue individual titles to the ARBs. We will release individual e-titles to protect and affirm the property rights of our ARBs,” Estrella said.

Estrella vowed to support the call of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. to expedite the distribution of land titles to ARBs this year and provide support services to help them improve their living conditions.

Atty. Robert Anthony Yu, Eastern Visayas Regional Director, disclosed that around 17,496 CCLOAs covering a total of 220,473 hectares of agricultural lands, situated in different parts of the region, are included in the SPLIT project.

He said that 67,601 hectares have already been validated by the region, while 3,922 hectares have been issued with e-titles.
