PM Svamitva Yojana: Online Registration, Eligibility & Property Card Scheme

PM Svamitva Yojana: After the successful implementation of PM Jan Dhan Yojana, which worked well in bringing Indian poor into the banking system, GOI has recently launched Property Card Scheme (Svamvita Yojana). This is another historic scheme introduced by the central government to serve the dual purpose of issuing ‘property cards’ (proof of ownership of property) to rural residents and enabling them to seek loans and other financial benefits in lieu of these cards. 

The online registration for PM Svamitva Yojana 2020 has already begun at the official website The process has been adopted to provide rural people with ownership records as proof of owning the land. Under the Property Card scheme, villagers will get records and ownership certificates of possession of their property.

Launched on April 24, 2020 (National Panchayat Day), with physical distribution of property cards starting in October 2020 (through video conferencing), the PM Svamitva Yojana uses drone surveying technology for demarcating inhabitant land providing ownership proofs to villagers, by measuring residential rural areas to create a digital map of every property (which falls within the village limits), and thereby also finalizing the limits of every revenue block.

Additionally, while years of banking presence and relations have enabled the urban Indian to easily seek huge loans against property in urban India, banks are still reluctant in disbursing loans to rural India due to the lack of proper ownership documents.
