Note: iTaukei land leased does not include Timber Concession's which makes up an aprox. area of 270,759 hectares. Difference in area; shown for State lands and iTaukei land with those complied by other sources may occur due to the following:
  • Proclamations of the State lands to native land happening from time to time, where some have been registered to iTaukei owners on the Register of iTaukei Lands (RTL) because their boundaries have been surveyed. In others which are not surveyed, the RTL's cannot be prepared and therefore not registered to their owners.
  • State (Crown) lands originally acquired by Government are sometimes reverted to iTaukei owners when such lands cease to be used for the purposes they were acquired for as in the case Queens and Kings Road, water catchment etc. In many cases, the task of completing the procedures involved, to revert the landowners have not been completed.
