Punjab government will digitally update rural areas across the state under the “Mera Ghar Mera Naam”/Swamitwa scheme to give rightful ownership of houses and plots under the red line in the district.
In this regard, Special Secretary Revenue-cum-Mission Director Swamitwa, Shri Keshav Hingonia held a special meeting with the District Revenue Officer, Tehsildar and Naib Tehsildar at the administrative complex today to review the progress of this scheme.
Regarding this, Mr. Keshav Hingonia informed that the aim of this scheme is to issue property cards to the owners of the houses in the red line areas in the state. So far 536 villages have been verified in district Rupnagar.
He said thatthe property that falls within the abadi deh area has to be prepared with the help of drone cameras. The maps of these mapped villages should be obtained and posted on large flex boards and common areas of the villages so that people can submit their objections regarding the errors in the maps within 90 days, after verification and their names for final approval be sent to Survey of India.
Special Secretary Revenue Mr. Keshav Hingonia further said that the implementation of the "Mera Ghar Mere Naam Scheme" run by the government should be speeded up so that people can take maximum advantage of this scheme because this scheme will help in streamlining planning and revenue collection in rural areas and ensuring clarity on property rights.
