DAR simplifies legal processes.

By Ellalyn De Vera-Ruiz

The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has simplified its legal processes by reducing requirements and processing time for all the applications requiring the agency's approval or action.

Under Administrative Order No. 2, Series of 2018, DAR Secretary John Castriciones pointed out that one area, which urgently requires an overhaul of the process is the cancellation of emancipation patents (EPs), certificates of land ownership award (CLOAs), and other titles issued under the agrarian reform program.

He said the Omnibus Rules of Summary Procedure applies to the cancellation of an EP, CLOA, or other title issued under any agrarian reform program arising from any of the following: Any case that does not have any remaining unresolved Agrarian Law Implementation (ALI) issues; an ALI case where the decision has become final and executory, and is not the subject of an annulment action or an ALI case or a cancellation case where the petitioner or all the parties would like to withdraw the said ALI or cancellation case.

"The Order also applies to a cancellation case to correct erroneous technical descriptions in the EP, CLOA, or other title issued under any agrarian reform program where the correction of the entries in the title shall not result to any issue regarding the identification or the number of the ARBs, or the correctness of the coverage of the landholding or any portion thereof and a cancellation case with an approved land transfer clearance arising from the sale, donation, assignment of rights, succession as well as any other form of conveyance approved by DAR pursuant to Section 27 of the Republic Act 6657, as amended," he added.
