Production Records To Determine Farmer's Eligibility For 99-year Lease

Production Records To Determine Farmer's Eligibility For 99-year Lease

Farmers resettled under the A1 and A2 models are now obliged to submit their annual productivity returns to the Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Water, Climate and Rural Resettlement and the returns will be used to assess if they qualify to be issued with a 99-year lease.

In a statement, the Minister of Lands, Anxious Masuka, said farmers are no longer required to apply for the 99-year lease. He said:

The current policy position on the issuance of the 99-year leases is that offer letters or land permit holders under the A2 resettlement scheme may apply to the minister for the issuance of 99-year leases.

In pursuit of the ease of doing business and as a consequence of the need of A1 and A2 farmers to submit mandatory annual production and productivity returns, with immediate effect, these returns will now be used to assess the readiness of a farmer to qualify for the issuance of a 99-year lease without the farmer having to apply for the lease.

It will enhance ease of doing business, cost of reduction, elimination of bureaucracy, streamlining operations and enhancing efficiency, while motivating and priming farmers for higher productivity, as we journey towards vision 2030.

This is in line with our on-going agricultural transformation. This aims to transform A2 farmers to become perennially successful businesspeople through enhanced security of tenure.

Title deeds are a no brainer for land someone was given for free. What if the person decides to sell that land. The current status of 99 year lease is correct and the state also reserves the right to revoke that lease. Title deeds can only exist where an individual has used his/her funds to purchase land, freebies do not qualify for that.

With Title Deeds they can't threaten you and harass you into supporting ZANU

The less generous among us would give a score (out of a possible 10) as -10 (minus 10)

The realistic answer to your question @Undertaker is ZERO. And that is being very generous.
