The National Land Board (BPN) has prepared draft for review over the Land Proposal of Land the next step is just to wait for the proposal to be discussed with the State Secretariat to obtain President’s approval. Joyo Winotio, Head of the National Land Board (BPN) disclosed to BusinessNews after attending President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’ speech in house session held at the House of Representatives and Regional Parliament, Monday (16/8).
The Law Proposal for Land Procurement is aimed at accelerating some infra-structure that the law would be passed this year 2010 “Precisely when, depends on discussions with Parliiament”.
This Law for Procurement which has been the grievances of developers in building infra-structures. Compared to former laws, this new law will show fundamental differences in terms of principles of land procurement will be made easier while on the other hand people’s right would be well secured. To illusatrate, if it were agreed upon that a certain location was allocated for public utility, the magnitude of compensation would be evaluated by an independent appraisal team; thereby the amount of compensation would be fair but land would be available for use.
Furthermore, the land clearing mechanism would be more democratic but effective. For example, soon there will be mutual agreement about locationas agreed by the people themselves, and the people may decide whether they would release their land now or during land procurement “There will be a lot of changes, and God willing, the law would be effective”.
