DAR-Palawan personnel asked to extend working hours to reach target
PUERTO PRINCESA CITY, Palawan, May 30 (PIA) -- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Palawan have enjoined its personnel to extend and give their extra service beyond office hours and even on weekends, if necessary, to ensure that the their agencyâ€™s targets and commitment are met.
The directive was issued as a result of the recent three-day Claimfolder (CF) Review and Processing Workshop wherein numerous concerns surfaced needing timely attention and intervention to fast-track land acquisition and distribution (LAD).
Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer Conrado Guevarra said that the workshop is part of fresh strategies implemented by the administration of DAR secretary Virgilio de los Reyes to introduce innovations aimed at accelerating the LAD component of the government agrarian reform program which is expected to be completed by 2014.
He pleaded for understanding, support and patience of the employees saying that the current workload of the agency require extra effort to move compensable lands, which entails careful handling as it has to undergo tedious and complex processes.
Claimfolder is a compilation of vital and critical documents concerning compensable lands and is a pre-requisite in the LAD and in the just compensation by Land Bank of the Philippines to land owners.
DAR-Palawan remains to be the top performer in the Mimaropa region in land acquisition and distribution and in the delivery of support services to about 29,500 CARP beneficiaries in 21 agrarian reform communities in Palawan. (LBR/VSM-PIA4B Palawan)
