In a historic move set to transform rural India and empower millions of Indians, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the physical distribution of Property Cards under the SVAMITVA (Survey of Villages And Mapping With Improvised Technology In Village Areas) scheme on 11th October, via video conferencing.
PM Modi, during the event, would interact with some of the beneficiaries of the scheme.
The launch will enable around one-lakh property holders to download their Property Cards through the SMS link delivered on their mobile phones. This would be followed by physical distribution of the Property Cards by the respective State governments.
These beneficiaries are from 763 villages across six states including 346 from Uttar Pradesh, 221 from Haryana, 100 from Maharashtra, 44 from Madhya Pradesh, 50 from Uttarakhand and two from Karnataka.
Beneficiaries from all these states except Maharashtra will receive the physical copies of the Property Cards within one day – Maharashtra has a system of recovering the nominal cost of Property Card, so it will take a months time.
The move will pave the way for using property as a financial asset by villagers for taking loans and other financial benefits.
Also, this is the first time ever that such a large-scale exercise involving the most modern means of technology is being carried out to benefit millions of rural property owners.
PM Modi will also be interacting with some of the beneficiaries during the event. Union Minister for Panchayati Raj will be present on the occasion.
SVAMITVA is a Central Sector Scheme of the Ministry of Panchayati Raj, which was launched by the PM Modi on National Panchayati Raj Day, 24th April 2020.The scheme aims to provide the record of rights to village household owners in rural areas and issue Property Cards.
The scheme is being implemented across the country in a phased manner over a period of four years (2020-2024) and would eventually cover around 6.62 lakh villages of the country. About one-lakh villages in the States of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Karnataka, and few border villages of Punjab and Rajasthan, along with establishment of Continuous Operating System (CORS) stations network across Punjab & Rajasthan, are being covered in the Pilot phase (2020-21).
All these six states have signed MoU with Survey of India for drone survey of rural areas and implementation of the scheme. These states have finalised the digital property card format and the villages to be covered for drone-based survey. States of Punjab and Rajasthan have signed MoU with Survey of India for establishment of CORS network to assist in future drone-flying activities.
Different states have different nomenclature for the Property Cards viz. Title deed in Haryana, Rural Property Ownership Records (RPOR)? in Karnataka, Adhikar Abhilekh? in Madhya Pradesh, Sannad in Maharashtra, Svamitva Abhilekh? in Uttarakhand, Gharauni? in Uttar Pradesh.

Nagpur: Married man accused of girlfriend’s rape commits suicide on Facebook live
A 38-year-old married man named Manish alias Raj Yadav, on Sunday, committed suicide during a Facebook live-stream after allegedly being accused of rape by his girlfriend and her family in Nagpur.
During the live stream, Manish, who was married and a father to three children, stated that his 19-year-old girlfriend, Kajal, along with her family members demanded a sum of five lakh rupees and threatened to press charges of rape if he failed to do so.
On September 6, the situation became grave as the woman’s family accused him of eloping after Kajal went missing from her residence.
The deceased refused the claims of having any sexual relationship with the woman and identified her, her family, and a photo studio operator responsible for his condition. He, then, jumped into the river.
After the live video surfaced online, Kalamna Police launched a search operation and recovered the deceased’s body from the river. Four people have been detained in the case for questioning. Further investigation is underway.
