BANDUNG CITY- West Java Provincial Government (Pemdaprov) is committed to certifying all assets on 2022-2023. The certification of this asset is to secure the assets of the West Java Provincial Government that have been vulnerable to being claimed by other parties.
This was conveyed by the Secretary of the West Java Regional Financial and Asset Management Agency (BPKAD) Junaedi, in the West Java forum to Have Information (Japri) at the Gedung Sate Museum yard, Jalan Diponegoro, Bandung, Thursday (05/2/19).
According to Junaedi, West Java Provincial Government is planning measures to strengthen evidence of legal asset ownership. So that when there are people or groups that claim, the Pemdaprov has a strong legal position.
"As an asset owner, in fact we also have the right to defend it. The 2019 formulation is one of them to strengthen the proof of ownership of our assets so that it is not easily sued," Junaedi said.
"Formulation 2019, including strengthening the evidence of legal ownership, namely with certification and valid ownership data. Then do physical safeguards already working with Satpol PP," he continued.
Junaedi admitted there were still many assets that had not been recorded. At present there are around 4,000-5,000 land assets that do not yet have certificates spread throughout West Java. Thus, the existence of assets is very vulnerable to use by certain parties.
The difficulty of certification of assets so far, said Junaedi, was because these assets were obtained in the Dutch era around 1920-1940 which had no proof of ownership. As for the asset certification process, it certainly takes a long time because it must be classified in advance of the condition of the assets.
However, these assets can be optimized gradually. In fact, he has asked the National Land Agency (BPN) to prioritize the management of asset certificates in West Java.
"At present the BPN is making a breakthrough to alleviate the requirements. So the clear place occupied by the West Java Provincial Government has not been asked for proof of ownership again," Junaedi said.
"With this breakthrough BPN, we are targeting that 4,454 provincial government assets that have not been certified can be completed in 2022-2023," he concluded.
