E-Gram Swaraj Portal & Mobile App
On National Panchayati Raj Diwas, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, has interacted with the gram pradhan of various gram panchayats. As the Lockdown continues and people are to observe the Social Distancing, the PM has interacted with these gram panchayats through video conferencing.
With this interaction, PM has also launched the e-Gram Swaraj Mobile App app. You must be curious to know what this app is and how it will help gram panchayats improve their working methods. Here, we have compiled all the details related to this app.
24th April is celebrated as the National Panchayati Raj Day (राष्ट्रीय पंचायती राज दिवस) (NPRD) every year. On 24 April 1993, the institutionalization of Panchayati Raj was done. This amendment was introduced in the Constitution. With the 73rd Amendment Act, 1992 the institutionalization of Panchayati Raj came into effect. Since then, every year, 24th of April has been celebrated as National Panchayati Raj Day. On the occasion of this day, the PM talks with the Panchayat representatives from all over the country. On this day the officials recognize their achievements to empower and motivate them further.

E-GramSwaraj Portal App Online
Along with the launch of the Gram Swaraj Portal the PM has also introduced the PM Swamitva Scheme. Under this scheme now it will be easy to map residential land ownership in the rural area of the country. This mapping will be done through modern technology like the use of drones. With the help of this scheme now it will become easy to have a record of the land and its owners. This step of the central government will cut down the number of disputes in rural areas on land.
When we look at the benefits of this scheme by the central government, we will have to understand this point that most people don’t have the papers of their land in a rural area. In this case, the chances of disputes get increase in rural areas. This scheme will fill this gap and make the people aware of their land ownership in rural areas.
To measure the land of every individual in the village, help from the drone will be taken. The drone will draw a digital map of the property that comes under the geographical limits of a village. With this digital map’s help, the people’s ownership will be finalized. To confirm the ownership, a property card will be prepared for every property in the village. These cards will be given to property owners and recognized by the Land Revenue Records Department as ownership documents.
Now, the property record of a village will be managed at the Panchayat level. The collection of taxes from the local landowners will also be done at this level only, and the collected money will be used to benefit the local area and people.
