Bezumowne korzystanie z gruntów rolnych Skarbu Państwa – ochrona ziemi państwowej przed nieuprawnionymi użytkownikami
Groundless Use of the State Treasury’s Rural Land – Protection of State Land against Unauthorised Users
Languages of publication
The audit conducted by NIK on its own initiative entitled Protection of the State Treasury’s Rural Land against Unauthorised Use showed that state land was commonly used unlawfully. In the years 2009-2012, annually almost 12 percent of the State Treasury’s land administered by auditees was used with no contracts, which constituted from 18,100 to 20,900 hectares. The majority of that land (64 percent) was used with no knowledge of the entities responsible for public assets management. Because of that, the State Treasury potentially lost approximately PLN 29.6 million that could have been earned from payments for the use of these properties. In the same period, the Agency for Restructuring and Modernisation of Agriculture (ARiMR) paid the total of PLN 75.8 million from European subsidies to those using land unlawfully. It is possible because the lack of a legal title is not an obstacle in obtaining payments from the ARiMR.
