AUTHORITY TO APPROVE ORIGINAL SURVEY PLANS FOR REGISTRATION PROCEEDINGS
ONLY THE LANDS MANAGEMENT BUREAU HAS AUTHORITY TO APPROVE ORIGINAL SURVEY PLANS FOR REGISTRATION PROCEEDINGS
> PD 239 has withdrawn the authority from the LRA to approve original survey plans
> There is no more necessity for the government to expropriate big landed estates as the tenant tillers of rice and corn lands have already been declared as owners of the lands they till
> The former grant of authority to the LRC to approve original survey plans has resulted in wasteful overlapping or duplication of functions, not to mention the deterioration of surveying standards and confusion in land survey records
> Need to centralize in one agency—the Lands Management Bureau—the function of verifying and approving original survey plans for all purposes in order to assure compliance with established standards and minimalize irregularities in the execution of land surveys
