SVAMITVA Scheme stands for “Survey of Villages Abadi and Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas”. It is a central sector scheme. It is implemented by the “Ministry of Panchayati Raj”. The scheme is implemented with the aim of providing property rights to residents across rural areas. The scheme will also make way to use property as a financial asset by villagers to take loans and other financial benefits in urban areas. It also aims to demarcate inhabited lands in rural areas using latest surveying drone-technology. Thus, the scheme also boosts the ecosystem of drone manufacturing in India.
