Lease money

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, June 14, 2014

ABOUT 131 landowners in Macuata have yet to receive their lease money because they do not have bank accounts.

This was revealed to members of the Macuata Provincial Council by the iTaukei Land Trust Board regional manager Northern Semisi Baro in Labasa on Thursday.

Mr Baro said a substantial amount of lease money that needed to be distributed to bank accounts of the landowners was still with the board.

He said the unavailability of bank accounts was a major concern for them.

The board has pleaded with chiefs and landowners to collect necessary documents such as the deed of trust in order for them to create their bank accounts with the banks of their choices.

He said it was only proper for landowners to have such accounts because the money they had with them needed to be distributed to the rightful owners.

The board, Mr Baro said, had beseeched the co-operation and support from the owners for the purpose of distributing the lease money.

He added the board was planning to improve its laws, and terms and conditions saying part of the plan was to improve the board's forest policy.
