The scheme, which will have for-reaching implications for India’s villages, will go a long way in establishing property owners’ rights over their land and houses.
- Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi
In yet another move towards `Atma Nirbhar Bharat’, Prime Minister Mr Narendra modi today launched physical distribution of property cards under `SVAMITVA’ (ownership) scheme. The beneficiaries of the scheme- residing in the villages- will have a legal document of owning their houses, and according to a press-statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), it would bring historical changes to the villages in India.
While launching the scheme through video-conferencing, Mr Modi also interacted with a few beneficiaries of the scheme.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Modi said “ one lakh beneficiaries from Haryana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh have been handed over the legal papers of their houses today,’’ He also promosed to give such property cards to every household in the “next three – four years in every village of the country.’’
The ownership of land and house, said Mr Modi, plays a big role in the development of the country. He added, “ when there is a record of property, citizens gain confidence and new avenues of investment open. Loan is easily available from the bank on record of property, employment and self-employment avenues open. But the difficulty is that today only one third of the population in the world has a record of their property legally.’’
The property cards being issued under the `SWAMITVA’ will clear the way to buy and sell property without any dispute for the villagers. Mr Modi said, “ today we have so many youths in the village who want to do something on their own. After getting the property card, easy access to loans from banks on their houses would be ensured.’’
The Prime Minister added that “ with the new technology like using drones in mapping and survey, accurate land records of every village can be created. Due to accurate land records, development related work in the village will also be easier which would be another benefit of these property cards.’’
