SVAMITVA: Empowering Rural India through Land Ownership



  Nov 08, 2023

SVAMITVA: A Transformative Rural Land Ownership Initiative



SVAMITVA, which stands for Survey of Villages and Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas, is a scheme launched by the Government of India aimed at providing an integrated property validation solution for rural India.
Through the use of advanced surveying methods, including drone technology, the scheme intends to create accurate land records and property maps. It helps in ensuring that property rights are clearly defined, which in turn aids in resolving disputes and improving transparency in rural land records.

By mapping rural inhabited lands using drones, SVAMITVA seeks to create a comprehensive rural property registry in the form of a ‘Record of Rights’. This initiative not only facilitates the accurate determination of property tax, which would increase the revenue for panchayats, but also allows property owners to use their land as a financial asset for taking loans and other financial benefits.

Furthermore, SVAMITVA aims to streamline planning and revenue collection in rural areas, thereby contributing to the government’s broader goal of self-reliance. The scheme also aligns with the Digital India movement, pushing for a more digitized and efficient governance model.

By providing people with official records of ownership, the scheme empowers rural populations and has the potential to significantly impact the rural economy. It aligns with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by promoting social and economic development and ensuring transparent and efficient governance.

The SVAMITVA scheme is a step forward in utilising modern technology to strengthen the foundation of rural development and governance, ensuring that the benefits of digitization reach the grassroot levels.
