What is Ownership Scheme?

SWAMITVA-Survey of Villages and Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas (SWAMITVA-Survey of Villages and Mapping) was launched as a central sector scheme with the objective of promoting a socio-economically empowered and 'self-reliant rural India'. Actually, the Swamitva Scheme is an important step in making the villages self-reliant in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's dream of a self-reliant India.

When did the scheme start

This scheme was launched by Prime Minister Modi on April 24, 2020. It has the potential to transform rural India using modern technological tools of mapping and surveying. This paves the way for the villagers to use the property as a financial asset to take advantage of loans and other financial benefits.

This new functionality of the Ministry of Panchayati Raj, Department of Science and Technology, Ministry of Civil Aviation, Survey of India and National Informatics Center will help in wider reach and transparency of the scheme. The scheme, a central sector owned by the Ministry of Panchayati Raj, was launched at the national level on Panchayati Raj Day (24 April 2021) after the successful completion of the pilot phase of the scheme in nine states.

Who will get benefit from the scheme?

Through this scheme, it has been planned to cover about 6.62 lakh villages across the country during 2021-2025. That is, all the villagers living in these villages will get the benefit of this scheme. The weak population in the villages will be strengthened by giving the villager a "Right of Record" of his property.

Survey to start again from June

In this regard, on Friday, Union Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Minister Giriraj Singh has said that by 2025, all the villagers of the country will get the Right of Record. In the dream of PM Modi's "self-reliant India", the information about the survey to be conducted from June under the "Swamitva Yojana" will be given to the MPs and MLAs of the area through SMS. Plan implementation with the participation of elected representatives instills confidence in the public.

Drones will fly for survey of village land

This important scheme is being implemented across the country in a phased manner over five years which will cover all villages across the country by 2025. With the use of modern technology this scheme is being run to further benefit lakhs of rural property owners.

Through SMS app service, all the information about drone flight will be sent to all MPs and MLAs through SMS two days in advance.
