The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has installed about 90 Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) in a 62-hectare land at Barangay Tinang in Concepcion, Tarlac.

For his part, DAR Regional Director James Ponce assured that the agency is in the process of registering the property with the Registry of Deeds to obtain a Collective Certificate of Land Ownership Award which then be parcelized and awarded to ARBs.

“Together with your installation in the property are your duties and responsibilities to cultivate and enrich the land to become your steady source of income,” Ponce reminded recipients.

He emphasized that the assistance of DAR does not end in the installation but continues to the provision of training, machineries, and other support services to sustain their livelihood.

Moreover, Ponce congratulated them for acquiring their Certificate of Incorporation as a manifestation of their registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
