Ownership is a scheme of the Ministry of Panchayati Raj. The Prime Minister made the announcement on April 24 on National Panchayat Day. The objective of the scheme is to provide property cards with record-related rights to homeowners in rural areas. According to the statement, the scheme will be implemented across the country in a phased manner over four years (2020-24). About 6.66 lakh villages will come under its purview.
