What is the main aim of the scheme SVAMITVA for rural India?
Aim of SVAMITVA to enable economic progress of Rural India by providing “Record of Rights” to every rural household owner. The Ministry of Panchayati Raj (MoPR) is the nodal Ministry for the implementation of the scheme. In the United States, the Revenue / Land Records Department will be the nodal department and will implement this plan with the support of the State Panchayati Raj Department. The technology partner for the implementation is Survey of India.
The scheme aims to provide an integrated asset verification solution for rural India. The delineation of rural abadi areas would be done using Drone Surveying technology. This would provide a “record of rights” to village household owners owning houses in populated rural areas in villages, which in turn would allow them to use their property as a financial asset to receive loans and other financial benefits from the bank.
