What are the benefits of Swamitva Yojana:

This newly launched scheme is solely launched by taking into account the need of village people and it will be beneficial for them in many ways. Some of its benefits are:

  • Many villagers have no record and documents of their residential properties.
  • Here comes the need of this scheme and that’s why Govt. decided to launch this scheme.
  • With the help of this Swamitva Yojana, the people of villages will now have the ownership of their residential properties.
  • By getting the ownership of their property through Scientific teleology, the village property owners can use this property for financial purposes.
    Panchayat will easily have the record of Residential areas of the village
  • It will help to bring the properties under Tax labs and it will also help to make tax collection easy.
  • With such earning, the Panchayats will be able to give more facilities in the villages.
  • The drones will give the exact mapping of the village property which will help in eliminating illegal possession of the property.

Need of PM Swamitva Yojna:

The village farmers are not apply for loan if they are not able to prove the ownership of their land. Thats why the Government has decided to launch this PM Swamitva Yojna that will help the villagers to get the loan against their Land. Ministry of Panchayati Raj announced that a property card will be made by the State Governments by doing the mapping of properties in right manner. This will help to give the ownership of the property to their real owners. In this way the land owners in the villages will be able to use their property for financial purposes. In other words, they will be able to easily get the loan. It will also be beneficial for the government, because it will make the process of tax calculation very easy.
