On 24th April 2020, at 11 am, on the occasion of 'National Panchayati Raj Day' 2020, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with all the sarpanchs in the country through video conferencing. The tweet from the Prime Minister's Office informed that all the sarpanchs would be joining this communication from their respective homes at a Common Service Centre (CSC) near to them, so as to follow the social distancing-norms of the covid-19 lockdown. The participants are free to share their views and concerns with the Prime Minister.

Interestingly, Panchayati Raj Minister, Shri Narendra Singh Tomar was also present on occasion. While addressing all the sarpanchs of the panchayats, the Prime Minister informed that the Coronavirus pandemic had taught a lot of things to Indians, like how to become self-dependent or atmanirbar. He also stressed that the time has come that each district, each gramapanchayat, & also each village to become self-dependent.

On the occasion of 'National Panchayati Raj Day', Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched the two initiatives for accelerating the pace of development in Indian's villages:

  1. e-GramSwaraj Portal/Mobile

  2. SWAMITVA Yojana

What is PM SWAMITVA Yojana?

The meaning of SWAMITVA is "Survey of Villages and Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas". SWAMITVA Yojana is a Central Government Yojana which will provide an integrated property validation solution for rural India. Under the Yojana, the inhabited land will be demarcated in rural areas by using the latest surveying methods like drone-technology with collaborated efforts of State Panchayati Raj Department, Ministry of Panchayati Raj, State Revenue Department & the Survey of India. Which means that the SWAMITVA Yojana will be used to map the land ownership in the rural sector using the latest technologies like the use of drones.

Property card for every plot or home in the village will be prepared by states using precise measurements delivered by drone-mapping. These cards will be given to property-owners and will be recognised by the land revenue records department. Just like the PMAY scheme, this yojana is said to become an iconic one in India.

What is the need of PM SWAMITVA Yojana?

It was also revealed that the villagers have no record or documents to prove that their residential land is indeed theirs. So, the need for a plan arose, so that the record of that land could be decided. Due to these discrepancies in the records of land ownership, many disputes were continuously arising between the family members. As a result of these disputes, big families started to break in small nuclear families, and the trust issues were formed between the members of the same family.

Aim of PM SWAMITVA Yojana

SWAMITVA Yojana aims to fill the above gap to provide complete ownership rights to the people in these villages. It is expected to go a very long way in settling land rights in rural hinterlands especially in the deep rural regions and likely to become a vehicle for empowerment and entitlement, reducing social strife on account of contention over properties. The main aim of SWAMITVA is to provide an integrated property validation system and solution for rural India. It is a scheme for surveying and mapping the land parcels in rural areas using drone-technology and Continuously Operating Reference Station (CORS) to create a non-disputable record. The mapping of land will be done across the nation in phases over a period of four years - from 2020 to 2024.

A leap towards Atmanirbhar Bharat: PM

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the SWAMITVA Yojana is a big step towards the vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat. A concrete initiative has been taken to fulfil the goal of providing property cards to every family. Ownership of one's house awakens one's self-respect. Life of new faith begins.

Just as PM Narendra Modi said that due to awakening of one's self-respect, his/her life of new faith begins, it will also help that person to become a better individual for his/her country and in return, it will help the nation by receiving a better response from the person in terms of not only tax but also in different matters related to the development of the nation.

In this way, SWAMITVA Yojana can help India to not only boost its rural economy but can also help it to get a very big leap towards fulfilling our vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat to a very greater extent.
