Drones to map property, assets of all villages in Rajasthan

JAIPUR: For the first time, drones will be used to conduct a survey of populated areas in all the 46,543 villages of Rajasthan with the objective of preparing 'village maps' and 'property records' of residents. This initiative will help in settling land-related or property disputes in villages and prevent encroachments.

Deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot said the state government would conduct the survey of populated areas in villages in collaboration with Survey of India using drone technology.

During the survey, which will be conducted over the next two years (2021-22 & 2022-23), ownership records of all village residents will be prepared.

“Through this survey, properties and assets records will be updated in populated areas of villages; valid record of properties will be prepared and property cards will be issued to owners. This will reduce property-related disputes in populated areas and help in better preparation of the Gram Panchayat Development Plan,” he said.

Along with this, a survey of community assets like rural roads, ponds, canals, open spaces such as parks, schools, anganwadis and health centers will be done and their maps prepared.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) will be signed between the Survey of India and the state government for implementing the plan.

He said that people would be made aware of the scheme and its benefits through gram sabhas. They will be sensitised for cooperating with the implementation of the scheme.

The records and maps will be available at gram panchayats, tehsils, district- and state-level offices. The records will also be available online and updated regularly, he said.
