The scheme has a noble intention and it aims to change the method for property or record maintenance in India. The launch of the scheme was symbolic and intentionally introduced on the Panchayat Raj Diwas, by PM Modi. It is right on the day of launch the honorable PM took time out to interact with gram panchayats nationwide via video conferencing.
A quick update on everything you will need to know about Swamitva Sarkari Yojana:
The purpose of the Swamitva Yojana Government scheme is to create a correct record of land ownership in rural areas with the help of modern technology.
The scheme was developed by the Panchayat Raj ministry under the Union government. The Panchayat Raj Divas on April 24th was chosen as the date for launch after much consultation.
The experts on rural life spoke extensively and said that such a scheme was long overdue. They had to say that the rural folk rarely have papers to prove ownership of land. In plenty of states, the surveys and measurements of rural properties are yet to be complete.
The experts say that this theme is intended to fill up this vital gap. The property-related issue in the rural hinterlands often generates plenty of disputes and this scheme will help significantly in setting out the concerns.
It is once the measurement of the land with drones is complete; there will be just no more disputes. The drones have the capacity of drawing a digital map for every single property within the boundary limits of a village. They will identify each revenue area separately.
The scheme intends to prepare property cards for every single property in the village. A property owner will receive the card and the land revenue department will acknowledge the card.
These records are to be maintained at the panchayat and it will allow the property owner access to banking facilities. The tax collection system from rural areas should also get a boost significantly.
