Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has lauded the liberalised drone policy of the country and said that it would benefit the people living in remote areas of the country.
"Recently, many policy decisions were taken so that farmers, patients, people living in remote areas get maximum benefits from drone technology," said PM Modi, while interacting with the beneficiaries of the Svamitva scheme from Madhya Pradesh via videoconferencing. "A large number of modern drones are made in India itself, in this also India should be self-reliant, for this PLI scheme has also been announced," he said.
He further said that the liberalised drone policy would give new heights to the villages of India.
"It is essential to remove country's villages, village property, land and house records from uncertainty and mistrust. That is why PM Swamitva scheme is going to become a huge strength of our brothers and sisters in the village," PM Modi said.
He further lauded the efforts of villages for their work during the pandemic. He said, "We have also seen during the Corona period how the villages of India worked together on one goal, fought this pandemic with great vigilance."
Earlier, PM Modi distributed e-property cards to 1,71,000 beneficiaries under the SVAMITVA scheme in Madhya Pradesh via video conferencing.
SVAMITVA is a Central Sector Scheme of the Ministry of Panchayati Raj that aims to provide property rights to the residents of rural inhabited areas. The scheme will pave the way for villagers to use the property as a financial asset for taking loans and other economic benefits, similar to urban areas.
