DAR field personnel gets motorcycle, goes full blast on SPLIT project implementation

Field personnel of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) was provided with motorcycles, under the Support to Parcelization of Lands for Individual Titling (SPLIT) project, for them to gain access to far-flung areas in the country to hasten the distribution of individual electronic land titles (e-titles) to the agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).

DAR Secretary Conrado Estrella III said the first batch of 156 motorcycles – Honda-XR150Ls – were delivered to the following: DAR central office, 2; Cordillera Administrative Region, 25; Ilocos Region, 27; Cagayan Valley, 52; Central Luzon, 20; and Central Visayas, 30.

Estrella said the motorcycles would play a crucial role in the conduct of field validation activities, especially in areas where access roads are less conducive for four-wheeled vehicles.

“These motorbikes will make a big difference in our efforts to expedite the subdivision of collective Certificates of Land Ownership Award (CLOAs) into individual land titles because there are areas, especially in the countryside, where motorbikes are the only appropriate mode of transportation,” Estrella said.

Estrella said the logistics support is in line with the marching order of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. to expedite the distribution CLOAs to the ARBs.

Engr. Joey Sumatra, DAR Assistant Secretary for Field Operations, said the 156 newly delivered motorcycles are part of the 820 units that the Department had procured at an aggregate cost of P123 million. Each motorbike costs P150,000.

Other regions expected to receive their shares of motorbikes soon include the CALABARZON,17; MIMAROPA, 22; Bicol Region, 60; Western Visayas, 108; Eastern Visayas, 123; Zamboanga Peninsula, 65; Northern Mindanao; 60; Davao Region, 59; Soccsksargen, 88; and Caraga, 62.
