TORA (Land for Agrarian Reform Objects) is one of the programs that support agricultural development in the context of increasing the availability and use of land. The TORA program provides considerable support for agricultural development, such as expansion of plantations, printing of new rice fields, expansion of rice fields and people’s ponds, and expansion of dryland agriculture, with a total redistribution of 9 million hectares. The target of TORA program until 2019 is 50%, but the realization only reaches around 25-30%. There are several main problems that obstruct the program, such as the conflict of dispute land between surrounding communities and plantations, problems in extending plantation business licenses, and gender issues. Therefore, government policy is needed in an effort to provide justice and legal certainty for people in the forest area, both those who will be the subject of TORA recipients and those who are not. Thus, the economic and social goals of the country, in this case agricultural development, are in accordance with the people’s expectations.
