The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) is on its way to finishing the distribution of agricultural lands under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), more than 40 years since the law was enacted under former President Corazon Aquino’s administration.

In a statement released on Thursday, the DAR said that as of June this year, it had already distributed 4.92 million hectares of agricultural lands to 2.89 million agrarian reform beneficiaries, or 90 percent of the 5.44 million ha of agricultural lands meant to be distributed under the law.


“We already have distributed 90 percent of those numbers and the DAR is on its way to distribute the remaining 523,000 ha,” Agrarian Reform Undersecretary David Erro said. —KARL R. OCAMPO
