DENR speeds up public land titling in Bicol

LEGAZPI CITY—The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Bicol regional office has adopted a new system to hasten public land titling through its Land Management Bureau.

As its initial move, the DENR Bicol conducted over the weekend a workshop for its field personnel involved in land administration and management and officials of the local government units involved in land concerns.

LMB Director Ralph Pablo stressed in the seminar that the system of mainstreaming land titling is one of the major initiatives of the government to assure the public land occupants of their ownership of the property they occupy and the additional income for the local government units in terms of realty taxes.

Pablo said the initiative on administrative confirmation of imperfect title or free patent has already been implemented in selected areas of the country like Bohol in the Visayas, where many residents were able to get benefits from free patent.

This initiative, he said, speeds up investigation and resolution of free patent by giving way to the alternative dispute resolution through amicable settlement at the barangay level.

Through this, the process of awarding free patent to qualified residents will be hastened and will eventually benefit the local government and the Bureau of Internal Revenue, Pablo claimed.

In this connection, Land Management Section Bicol Regional Technical Director Pedro Noble asked the public land occupants to apply for free patent if they believe they are qualified by going to the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office in their respective areas to assist them in the free patent titling of the land given by the government. —by Emmanuel P.
