SVAMITVA (Survey of Villages and Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas) is a Central Sector Scheme of Ministry of Panchayati Raj towards establishing clear ownership rights in rural areas, by mapping of land parcels using drone technology and providing Record of Rights to village property owners; implemented with the collaborative efforts of Ministry of Panchayati Raj, State Revenue Department, State Panchayati Raj Department and Survey of India.

It is a reformative step towards establishment of clear ownership of land and property, by mapping of land parcels using drone technology and providing legal ownership cards (Property Cards) to the property owners.

The scheme covers multifarious aspects viz. facilitating monetization of properties and enabling bank loan and other financial facilities, reducing property related disputes and comprehensive village level planning.

The Government of Assam has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Survey of India, GoI for implementation of SVAMITVA on June 21, 2021. In line with the core essence of the SVAMITVA to provide Records of Right to the people who have been still unreached; the state has decided to cover Unsurveyed (non-cadastral) Villages under SVAMITVA Scheme where there is no land right of the people.

As in March 2022, there are 1074 unsurveyed villages in the State with an area of approximately 2300 sq. km. Polygon survey of those villages have been completed under Mission Basundhara. Drone based detail survey will be undertaken under SVAMITVA which will be followed by record creation and finally providing individual land rights to the settlers.
