On September 13, 2022, NIA-Iloilo-Guimaras IMO-Jalaur-Suague River Irrigation System, Pototan, Iloilo personnel conducted their 1st day of Operation FISA Consultation and Application at Brgy. Dawis Sur, Zarraga, Iloilo/INDACA IA. This is an on-site processing/application of Free Irrigation and Condonation and Writing off of unpaid Irrigation Service Fees (ISF) per RA 10969, the Free Irrigation Service Act (FISA) to qualified landowners.

All farmers with landholdings of eight hectares and below are exempted from paying ISF for services derived from National Irrigation Systems (NIS) and Communal Irrigation System (CIS).

Same activity was also conducted on September 14, 2022, at Brgy. Talibong, Zarraga, Iloilo for the members and beneficiaries of DITA IA.

This action directly assists our landowners/farmer beneficiaries/tenants/tillers in gaining a thorough understanding of the FISA, guiding them to apply for free irrigation service and relieve them from the burden and consequence of unpaid ISF.

The visit per barangay/IAs helps fast-track FISA applications.
