Jharkhand govt launches Svamitva Yojana for digital records of properties

On Monday, the Jharkhand government formally commissioned the centre’s Svamitva Yojana from Karra village in Arki block of Khunti district.

Under the scheme, the state department of revenue, land records and registration will join hands with the Survey of India to generate digital records of immovable properties belonging to residents of rural areas in the state.

The state government said that in the initial phases, over 175 villages under the Arki block will be brought under the scheme. Svamitva is a Survey of Villages and Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas. States such as Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab have already started executing the scheme’s first phase.

After inaugurating the scheme, Khiangte told the media that under the scheme, the district administration would team up with officials of the Survey of India, and visit the villages, mark the property’s boundaries along with taking aerial pictures of immovable properties. He additionally said that the photographs will then be used to generate digital land records, and its owner will be given property cards.
