DAR agrarian related cases resolved online

The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) seeks to provide faster resolution of agrarian-related cases once the online legal case monitoring system becomes operational.
DAR Undersecretary for Legal Affairs Anthony Parungao said all agrarian-related cases, whether filed at the DAR Adjudication Board or at any DAR office nationwide, would be entered into the web-based system for easy monitoring and tracking on the development of the cases.
“Through this latest step, all concerned parties could inquire on the status of their cases at the DAR central office or at any of its regional and provincial offices nationwide,” Parungao said.
The system would simplify the process and hasten the resolution of these cases.
“Management is optimistic that this online system will help the department in achieving its targets, particularly in the speedy resolution of cases affecting land acquisition and distribution,” he said.
Some 2,380 cases throughout the Eastern Visayas region are targeted for resolution within the year, DAR regional director Eliasem Castillo said.
Last year, a total of 2,092 cases involving 1,715 agrarian beneficiaries were resolved. [PNA]
