Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the physical distribution of property cards under the Survey of Villages And Mapping With Improvised Technology In Village Areas (SVAMITVA) scheme on Sunday.
These cards are physical copies of property titles of the villagers’ homes and the surrounding areas they own (as opposed to the cultivated land).
“A landmark day for rural development! Do join the programme at 11 AM,” PM Modi had earlier tweeted.
The scheme’s pilot project is being implemented in as many as 763 villages, including 346 from Uttar Pradesh, 221 from Haryana, 100 from Maharashtra, 44 from Madhya Pradesh, 50 from Uttarakhand and two from Karnataka
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan, Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar and Uttarakhand CM Trivendra Singh Yadav were also present at the event.
