With an aim to empower rural India and make it self-reliant, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the physical distribution of property cards under SVAMITVA scheme on October 11. While the launching, PM Modi declared that under SVAMITIWA scheme, the beneficiaries will get a legal document as a proof of their ownership of their houses. Calling it as a major step towards Aatma Nirbhar Bharat, he said that this scheme will make rural India self-reliant.
The Prime Minister pointed out that as many as 1,00,000 beneficiaries from villages in Haryana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh have been given the legal papers of their houses. Further, he promised that such property cards will be handed over to every household in the next three-four years in every village of the country.
Citing the reason for the launching date being the birth anniversary of renowned freedom fighters Nanaji Deshmukh and Jai Prakash Narayan, PM Modi said, “The birth anniversary of these two great men did not just fall on the same date, rather their struggle and ideals were also similar. Both Nananji and Jai Prakash Ji fought their entire lives for the empowerment of rural India and the poor.”
Staging that the property cards will play a significant role in the nation’ development, PM Modi said that with proof of ownership, citizens will gain confidence and new avenues for investment will open up. Banks will easily provide loans on the property and further employment and self-employment avenues will open.
