This means that if the land has been affected by the destruction of irrigation systems and there is a limited water supply, it is not suitable for conversion to other purposes. This is because without proper irrigation and water availability, the land may not be able to support agricultural activities effectively.

    Explanation
    The given answer is correct because it includes the necessary documentary requirements for DAR clearance in the sale of a 5-hectare agricultural land. The seller's affidavit of non-tenancy or tenant's affidavit of voluntary surrender ensures that the seller does not have any tenants on the land. The buyer's affidavit stating that the hectarage being sold is the seller's retention area ensures that the land being sold is within the allowed limits. Additionally, the buyer's affidavit stating that the hectarage being bought, along with their present landholdings, does not exceed 5 hectares ensures compliance with the maximum landholding limit.

This means that for a period of 10 years, the beneficiary is not allowed to pass on the ownership of the land to their heirs or sell it to another party. This restriction is likely in place to ensure that the land remains within the control of the beneficiary for a certain period of time, possibly to protect the interests of the original owner or to prevent rapid changes in land ownership.

This certification is required as a special documentary requirement for the conversion of agricultural land if the applicant is a beneficiary of an agrarian reform program.
