Millions of farmers are eligible to alter their paperwork

Millions of farmers are eligible to alter their paperwork.

According to Agriculture Minister Thamanat Prompow, as many as 1.62 million farmers would be qualified to convert their Sor Por Kor 4-01 records into land title rights.
He said that subject to the following conditions, the committee has accepted in principle the conversion of Sor Por Kor 4-01 documents possessed by farmers into land title deeds:

Land must be used exclusively for agriculture.

According to the laws, land can be transferred among qualified farmers.

According to the requirements of the Agricultural Land Reform Office (ALRO), valuable plants must be grown there.

Farmers have the option of insuring themselves against financial institutions, particularly those that are government-run.

Farmers are required to have Sor Por Kor 4-01 papers and have been cultivating their land for at least five years.

He added that the ALRO is in charge of working on this matter. According to him, up to 1.62 million farmers with a combined 22.07 rai (3.53 hectares) are eligible to convert their Sor Por Kor 4-01 paperwork into land title deeds.

He emphasized that farmers would receive their first agriculture land title deed by January 15 of the following year, and he anticipated that all provincial land reform offices would issue new title deeds to all farmers within five years.

Thamanat stated that the committee had authorized the plan to distribute agricultural land to decedent owners’ heirs by July 15 of the next year.

According to him, 171,434 landowners have not notified ALRO of their ownership of the land, and their heirs might reach out to provincial land reform offices and their mobile units nationally.

According to him, the committee also approved a project to help farmers who owe money to the agricultural land reform fund. Farmers can apply for this project if they meet the following criteria:

As of September 30 this year, there was a total principle balance on all contracts that did not go over 300,000 baht.

Have a solid track record of repaying debts on time, and be able to postpone payments and waive interest

He added that the project’s first phase would last from November 1 of this year to October 31 of the following, and that an evaluation would come after the second and third stages.

He stated that by registering with provincial land reform offices around the country, 17,806 farmers are qualified to take part in this project.
