The Centre has recently launched SVAMITVA scheme that will digitalise land records and empower rural India. Hailing the initiative, prime minister Narendra Modi said it ‘is a mantra for development & improving trust in the villages with the help of modern technology. ’

Last month speaking at an event, PM Modi said, under the Svamitva Yojana around three lakh villagers have received property cards that would enable them to access loans. "Through Svamitva Yojana, legal property documents are being created in villages and around three lakh villagers have got their property cards. This will also help them in getting loans," PM Modi said.

The Prime Minister also said that it is the Centre government's constant endeavour to bring stability and accessibility to schemes for benefit of the beneficiaries.
