Liputan6.com, Bogor The Full Systematic Land Registration (PTSL) program implemented by the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Spatial Planning/Head of the National Land Agency (ATR/BPN) has had a positive impact on the community. The reason is that the residents of Gunung Sari village, Pamiyahan District, Bogor Regency, received land certificates.
A total of 500 land certificates were distributed on Monday (December 4, 2024). The land certificate was handed directly to 10 representatives of the recipients.
ATR Minister/BPN Chairman Hadi Tjahjanto said the community will enjoy many benefits when it receives the land certificate.
“Firstly, your land is protected from the problem of land mafia grabbing because it already has a certificate and has passed electronic registration at the head office. So today your land rights are legally protected,” he said.
“Secondly, if someone brings a fake certificate about his land, then it is impossible, because it is already clear which is real and which is fake. Third, if someone takes the initiative to expand his business, wants to open a shop, what do you have there is capital, it is used as collateral,” Hadi Tjahjanto explained.
If people want to use the certificate as access to additional capital, people can use it as collateral for a formal financial institution, he said.
“If you need to go to school, go to a legitimate institution, don’t go to a moneylender because the interest is high and there is a risk of losing the land and the certificate,” Hadi Tjahjanto said.
