400k land plots in Purbalingga not yet certified
The Jakarta Post
Around 70 percent of 583,565 land plots in Purbalingga regency in Central Java have yet to be certified, exposing potential land conflicts, an official has said.
The land infrastructure division head at the National Land Agency (BPN), Isgiyanto, said he hoped the 401,815 land plots that did not certificates could be certified soon.
Purbalingga Agrarian Agency head Ahmad Yani said the regency fully supported President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s land reform program, which aims to certify 5 million land plots nationwide this year. “Purbalingga will certify 18,500 land plots by the end of the year,” he said.
Muhalim, 45, from Padamara village in Padamara district, Purbalingga, said complicated procedures and red tape had made it difficult for residents to get their land certified. “That is why many are reluctant [to deal with agrarian officials] because they have to prepare a lot of money,” he said.
