President Jokowi Distributes 6,000 Land Certificates in Garut
Date 19 Januari 2019
President Joko Jokowi Widodo on Saturday (19/1) distributed 6,000 land certificates to Garut residents and its surroundings.
The President, who was accompanied by First Lady Ibu Iriana Joko Widodo, distributed the certificates to twelve representatives of residents.
On the occasion, President Jokowi said that the acceleration of the distribution is carried out by the Government because there are many disputes in various regions, either in or outside Java.
We have distributed 9 million certificates last year and we eye the same this year, the President said.
President Jokowi reminded the people who have received the certificates to make a copy of it and secure them inside a plastic folder so the water cannot damage it. He also suggests storing the copy and the original separately in order to avoid loss.
Furthermore, the President also asked them to make careful decisions to use their certificates as collateral to the bank and ordered them to calculate it first. In addition, the President also reminded them to ensure they are able to pay the installment.
The loan money, President Jokowi continued, should be used for working capital.
The profit earned may be used to buy a vehicle. This is for your family welfare because it can be passed on to your descendant, President Jokowi added.
Also accompanying the President on the occasion were Minister of Agrarian and Spatial Planning/Head of National Land Agency (BPN) Sofyan Djalil and West Java Deputy Governor Uu Ruzhanul Ulum. (EN/AGG/ES)
