The Act is divided into the following Parts: Preliminary (I); Conversion of Tenure (II); Avoidance of Fragmentation and Regulation of Dealings (III); Certain Fees, Etc. (IV); Miscellaneous (V).The Land Titles Commission shall complete an adjudication record and shall enquire whether a Native wishes to apply for registration of any native land included in the record by agreement. Further provisions concern the procedure to be followed for said registration. After the expiry of the period accorded to file any objection to the application, and after a survey has been carried out by the Commission, the land shall be declared to remain native land or to be converted into individualized land. Articles 11 and 12 specify the content of the conversion order and establish the power of the Commission to amend the conversion plan. Upon the issue of the conversion order: (a) the land ceases to be native land; (b) all rights over the land regulated by native custom are abolished, other than those specified in the order. According to the provisions and principles of Part III, the fragmentation of land is in general to be avoided, in order to achieve a more effective agricultural development and promote the economic interests of the agricultural population. Final provisions concern offences and penalties.
