Rajasthan: Over 580 families get property rights under Svamitva scheme
JAIPUR: Under the centre’s Svamitva scheme, drone flying is yet to commence in Jalore and Sirohi districts for surveying lands in village areas. So far, property cards have been distributed to only 582 households in 38 villages of Rajasthan under the scheme, a central government data stated.
The central sector scheme Svamitva aims to provide the ‘record of rights’ to village household owners possessing houses in inhabited areas of villages with issuance of legal ownership rights including property cards and title deeds. Under the scheme, the land parcels in the inhabited areas of all the villages in the country are surveyed using drones.
Minister of state (Mos) for panchayati raj Kapil Moreshwar Patil informed this while replying to an unstarred question in Lok Sabha on April 5.
The scheme is being implemented with the collaborative efforts of the ministry of panchayati raj, survey of India (SoI), state revenue department, state panchayati raj department and National Informatics Centre (NIC). States need to sign memorandums of understanding (MoUs) with SoI for implementation of the scheme.
So far, 29 states/union territories, including the states of Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Gujarat have signed MoUs with SoI. “Since Bihar hasn’t signed the MoU with SoI yet, the scheme hasn’t been initiated in the state,” it added.
