Date 25 September 2017
President Joko Jokowi Widodo affirmed that society should be served as quickly as and as well as possible. This was enunciated by the President during his working visit to Central Java Province to carry out the agenda of distributing certificates in Jambesari Field, Pulutan Village, Sidorejo Subdistrict, Salatiga, Monday (25/9).
On the occasion, President Jokowi handed over 5,781 land certificates at firsthand to the community from Semarang Regency and Salatiga.
Earlier, President Jokowi asked the people in attendance regarding the duration the certificates began to enter and completed. “Some say, it took 2 months, the other say 3, 4, 5 months, Pak, between 2 to 5 months. So, normally? Its unclear. It took two years, a year, not clear,” the President explained.
This year, the President has ordered the Minister of Agrarian and Spatial Planning/National Land Agency (BPN), Sofyan Djalil, and all BPN offices in the regencies and cities, from Sabang to Merauke, from Miangas to Rote Island, throughout Indonesia to complete the target of 5 million land certificates this year. “Normally, it is only 400,000-500,000, now 5 million, 10-fold. Next year, it must be 7 million. Next two years, it must be 9 million. For the record, there should be 126 million land certificates all over Indonesia,” the President added.
The President further explained that every time he went to the region, he received inputs related to land disputes between neighbors, communities, communities and companies, as well as communities and the Government. “What happened? The land owned does not have any legal title like I hold. If you already have this on you, everyone who wants to claim, the Government, a company, a neighbor who claimed this is my land. You say: No! This is my land. The proof? Here it is,” the President said.
Minister Sofyan said, the President added, that in Salatiga, next year it will be 100 percent completed. He added that in Central Java alone, the number of unfinished tasks is quite many; therefore, it is expected to be completed by 2023 in all areas of Central Java. “I have told all BPN offices, do not hamper the affairs of land certificate, be careful, I remind you,” the President added.
In his report, Minister Sofyan said that the recipients of certificate from Semarang Regency are 5,000 certificate recipients and from Salatiga city are 781 certificate recipients. The number is fewer in Salatiga, Minister Sofyan continued, because the land that has not been certified is not that many now. “We have already communicated with the BPN Regional Office and Salatiga Mayor, next year In shaa Allah, for Salatiga city, it will be certified 100 percent,” Minister Sofyan concluded.
Accompanying the President were Minister of Agrarian and Spatial Planning/National Land Agency (BPN) Sofyan Djalil, Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung, Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo, Salatiga Mayor, and Regents and Heads of Villages. (DNA/OJI/EN). (MUR/YM/Naster).
