SVAMITVA scheme launched in L/Subansiri

ZIRO, Mar 18: The SVAMITVA scheme for Lower Subansiri district was kick-started from Bamin Michi village here on Saturday.

A Central sector scheme of Panchayati Raj Ministry, the SVAMITVA scheme is a reformative step towards establishment of clear ownership of property in rural inhabited (Abadi) areas by mapping of land parcels using drone technology and providing ‘record of rights’ to village household owners with issuance of legal ownership cards to property owners.

The scheme covers multifarious aspects including facilitating monetization of properties and enabling bank loans, reducing property related disputes; and comprehensive village level planning towards achieving Gram Swaraj in true sense and making rural India Atmanirbhar.

Launching the programme, Lower Subansiri Deputy Commissioner Bamin Nime sought cooperation from denizens of the district for smooth and successful conduct of the operation in the district. He also highlighted the importance of information, education and communication (IEC) on the occasion.

District Land Revenue & Settlement Officer Er Chaku Raju informed that 19 villages of Ziro-I circle would be mapped in the first phase of the total 5,000 villages to be mapped in the State.

The scheme is implemented by collaborative efforts of the Ministry of Panchayati Raj, State Land Revenue Department, State Panchayati Raj Department and Survey of India.

Among others, ZPM Bamin Gumbo, Apatani Youth Association president Tapi Mali, and GBs of Bamin Michi village attended the launching programme. (DIPRO)
