JAKARTADAILY.ID - The Presidential Staff Office or KSP conveyed every individual who owns the land in Nusantara Capital City, or IKN's area, may file claims to the recently formed team by the East Kalimantan Governor.

According to Deputy II of the Indonesian Presidential Chief of Staff, Abetnego Tarigan, the people can file their claim to the East Kalimantan Regional Office for the National Land Agency (BPN) and the Balikpapan Land Office.

"Those who have information and data regarding indications of indigenous peoples' ownership or other indications of conflict can submit it [the claim] to the team formed by the governor, to be part of the review in the ongoing work process," he said, Monday, March 21, 2022.

According to Abetnego Tarigan, this mechanism is regulated in East Kalimantan Governor Regulation Number 6 of 2020 concerning controlling the transfer of land use and permits in the candidate area for the State Capital and buffer zones.

The location category consists of the core zone and development zones, namely, the Central Government Core Area covering an area of 6,671 hectares, the IKN area of 56,180 hectares, and the IKN Land Area of 256,142 hectares.

Abetnego Tarigan also ensured no land tenure in the Central Government Core Area zone because it's considered an untouched forest area.

As for the development zone, there are indications of existing possessions, either by the community, companies, institutions, or other related teams.

"Inventory and verification are currently being carried out [on the related areas] by the East Kalimantan Land Registrar Regional Office and the Balikpapan Land Registrar Office," said Abetnego Tarigan.

Currently, the team is handling several claims for those coming from indigenous peoples, such as heirs of the Kutai Sultanate and claims from 14 farmer groups at the IKN.

Abetnego Tarigan also said that the government is currently drafting regulations for the IKN Law implementation.

One of which is the Presidential Regulation Draft concerning the acquisition, control, ownership, use, and utilization of land as well as restrictions on transferring land rights in the Indonesian capital.

"These rules will regulate, control, and anticipate existing land problems," said Abetnego Tarigan, quoted by from Antara.
