The power of the villages, the land and the houses of the people of the village could not be fully utilized for their development. On the contrary, the energy, time and money of the people of the village were wasted in disputes, fights, illegal occupations over village land and houses.
The Prime Minister complimented the villages for their performance during the corona period. He noted how the villages of India worked together and tackled the pandemic.
The Prime Minister stated that the SVAMITVA Scheme is not just a scheme to provide property documents, but it is also a new mantra for development and improving trust in the villages of the country with the help of modern technology. “The Udan Khatola (drone) that is flying in villages and localities for the survey is giving a new flight to the villages of India,” he said.
The Prime Minister said the efforts of the government for the last 6-7 years is to make the poor free from dependence on anyone. Now, money is being sent directly to the bank accounts of farmers under PM Kisan Samman Nidhi.
