Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the distribution of e-property cards under the SWAMITVA scheme today on the National Panchayati Raj Day at 12:00 noon through video conferencing.
As many as 4.09 lakh property owners will be given their e-property cards on the occasion, this will also mark the rolling out of the SVAMITVA scheme for implementation across India. Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar will also be present at the event.
Besides the launch of SWAMITVA scheme, PM Modi will also present National Panchayat Awards 2021 on the occasion. The National Panchayat Awards 2021 are being conferred under the following categories:
Deen Dayal Upadhyay Panchayat Sashaktikaran Puraskar (to 224 Panchayats)

Gram Panchayat Development Plan Award (to 29 Gram Panchayats)
Child-friendly Gram Panchayat Award (to 30 Gram Panchayats)
e-Panchayat Puraskar (to 12 States)
PM Modi will transfer the award money as Grants ranging from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 50 lakh. The amount will be directly transferred to the bank account of the Panchayats concerned in real time. Such a move has been taken for the first time.
