There are many individuals around the country who still do not have the rights to their property. For this goal, both the Central and state governments are implementing various sorts of initiatives so that each and every resident of India may gain rights on their property. Today we are going to inform you about such a plan created by the Punjab government named Punjab Mera Ghar Mera Naam Scheme. Through this initiative, property rights would be extended to the individuals living in dwellings inside the Lal Dora of villages and the towns.
The chief minister of Punjab Mr. Charanjit Singh Channi announced the Punjab Mera Ghar Mera Naam plan on 11th October 2021. This initiative has been developed in order to impart property rights to the people who are living in houses that are situated inside the Lal Dora of villages and towns. Around 12700 communities would be covered under this plan. Lal Dora is primarily a hamlet or town settlement that has a cluster of dwellings where inhabitants live. The people of Lal Dora were not possessing ownership rights but this project would grant them the ownership rights. For this reason, the tax department will carry out a drone survey in rural and urban regions for Digital Mapping.
After completing the survey adequate verification of eligible residents will be carried out. After that property card will be given over to the recipients. Before giving out property cards 15 days time would be provided for filing their concerns. In this respect, if no reply is received from them then the property card will be given which would serve the purpose of registration against which property owners may seek loans from the bank and even sell their property. Other than that, those individuals who are dwelling in houses in old neighbourhoods for a long generation would also be protected under this plan. This initiative is simply an expansion of center’s swamitva Yojana.
The major purpose of the Punjab Mera Ghar Mera Naam Scheme is to offer ownership rights of property to those persons who are living in Lal Dora of villages and cities. Now all the residents who were living for generations in the houses will be able to receive property right which will enable them to sell their property and even accept loans. Around 12700 communities will cover under this strategy. Other than that, those residents who are living in an old neighbourhood for a long generation would cover under this system. The Government of Punjab is planning to issue handed property cards to the owners of property under the scheme which would be the proof of their ownership.
