SVAMITVA Scheme is a Central Sector scheme launched by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India on National Panchayat Day i.e 24th April 2020. The Ministry of Panchayati Raj (MoPR) is the Nodal Ministry for implementation of the scheme.
In the States, the Revenue Department / Land Records Department will be the Nodal Department and shall carry out the scheme with support of State Panchayati Raj Department. Survey of India shall work as the technology partner for implementation.
The scheme aims to provide an integrated property validation solution for rural India. The demarcation of rural abadi areas would be done using Drone Surveying technology. This would provide the ‘record of rights’ to village household owners possessing houses in inhabited rural areas in villages which, in turn, would enable them to use their property as a financial asset for taking loans and other financial benefits from Bank
The scheme seeks to achieve the following objectives: –
** To bring financial stability to the citizens in rural India by enabling them to use their property as a financial asset for taking loans and other financial benefits.
** Creation of accurate land records for rural planning.
** Determination of property tax, which would accrue to the GPs directly in States where it is devolved or else, add to the State exchequer.
** Creation of survey infrastructure and GIS maps that can be leveraged by any department for their use.
** To support in preparation of better-quality Gram Panchayat Development Plan (GPDP) by making use of GIS maps.
** To reduce property related disputes and legal cases
There are about 6.62 lakh villages in the country which will be eventually covered in this scheme. The entire work is likely to be spread over a period of four years. Presently, the pilot phase is being approved for the year 2020-21.
Pilot Phase will extend to six pilot States (Haryana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand) covering approx. 1 lakh villages and CORS network establishment is planned for two States (Punjab And Rajasthan).
Refer Annexure I for the state wise count of villages covered under pilot phase. The respective State Government would finalise the list of villages at the time of signing MoU with Survey of India
