LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday distributed rural residency rights online materials to 11 lakh families under the Swamitva scheme here.

At a reception held in the auditorium of Lok Bhawan, Adityanath distributed the documents and insisted on the establishment of a self-governing state.

“Heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to all the villagers who have obtained their legal rights to their lands,” the chief minister tweeted.

He said, “Tribal people like Vantangia, Tharu and Musahar had no voice, had no land. The dual-powered BJP government worked to provide land to them on a massive scale through campaigning. ”

“We must not only create a self-governing India, but also a self-governing state and districts. The campaign for self-governing villages should also be continued,” the chief minister said.

He said about 2.5 million people residing in UP villages would get these certificates by October next year.

The CM said while 34,000 people have already benefited from the program, a drone land survey in 1,10,300 state-income villages will be completed by August, speeding up the distribution of certificates to more people, according to an official statement.

Expressing his gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for launching the Rural Residential Records program across the country two years ago, Adityanath said it will help strengthen the rural economy and encourage villagers to become self-sufficient in the long run.

“Mahatma Gandhi dreamed of Gram Swaraj while Prime Minister Modi’s vision is to make the country self-reliant. The program will help achieve these broader goals,” he said.

During the reception, Adityanath said it would also help curb land encroachments, noting that the UP government has so far freed up 64,000 hectares illegally occupied by criminals since the launch of the scheme.

He highlighted the importance of digitizing land records to quickly settle disputes and increase state revenue.

Adityanath said the certificates will also make it easier for villagers to get loans as well as start and grow their businesses, describing it as a historic milestone in the history of Indian democracy.

The program aims to facilitate the transfer of ancestral lands and properties to their rightful owners, he added.
