Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday launched the physical distribution of property cards under the ‘SVAMITVA’ scheme through video conferencing and said the scheme would make those living in rural India ‘Atmanirbhar’, or self-reliant.
“Today, the country has taken another major step towards AatmaNirbhar Bharat. The ownership plan is going to help a lot in making our brothers and sisters living in the village self-reliant,” said Modi.
The Prime Minister also interacted with the beneficiaries of the said scheme.
While interacting with the beneficiaries, PM Modi said the scheme will bring about a historical change in the villages of our country. “Today you (beneficiaries) have a right, a legal document to prove that your house is yours; you own it.”
“When there is a record of property, citizens gain confidence and new avenues for investment open up,” PM Modi said.
The Prime Minister further said, “With records of your property, getting a loan from the bank will be easier,”
“In the last 6 years, continuous work is being done to remove chronic shortages. Today, without any discrimination in the country, everyone is developing, everyone is getting benefits of schemes with complete transparency,” Modi added.
“For decades, crores of families in the village did not have a home of their own. Today, about 2 crore poor families in the village have got pucca houses,” the Prime Minister said.
“The Nation is determined to make the village and the poor self-reliant. The role of ownership plan is also very big for the accomplishment of this resolution,” the Prime Minister added.
“I am very happy that such a huge work is being done today, on the birth anniversary of two great sons of India – Bharat Ratna Lokanayak Jayaprakash Narayan, and Bharat Ratna Nanaji Deshmukh,” said Modi.
