Fourteen (14) persons were the proud recipients of lease letters distributed earlier today by the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries at its Head Office in Chaguanas.

In speaking to the recipients, Agriculture Minister, Senator the Honourable Clarence Rambharat said the letters represented an end to a very lengthy process for them. In some instances the exercise would have taken decades to expedite given the complexity in addressing some of the State land issues. Despite, these numerous challenges the Minister indicated he was always focused on treating expeditiously with all files coming to his office. This he said, would have meant at times, drafting the relevant Cabinet Notes by himself.

Minister Rambharat said he was very optimistic about the processing of leases going forward and has seen an improvement in this area ever since the Ministry embarked on the digitization of all land files to significantly address the issues of the inordinate delay.  

At today’s event, eleven (11) persons received lease letters in respect to agricultural parcels, while three (3) persons received lease letters in respect to residential parcels. The letters convey Cabinet’s approval to grant a Standard Agricultural / Residential Lease for an initial period of thirty (30) years. They also serve as a guarantee to recipients as it affords them the privilege of accessing financial institutions and State entities in respect to the conduct of legitimate business transactions on their respective parcels.
