Survey of Villages and Mapping
  • Aim: To provide an integrated property validation solution for rural India. It is a scheme for mapping the land parcels in rural inhabited areas using drone technology and Continuously Operating Reference Station (CORS) .
  • The mapping will be done across the country in a phase-wise manner over a period of four years - from 2020 to 2024.


  • The scheme will help in streamlining planning and revenue collection in rural areas and ensuring clarity on property rights. The scheme will enable creation of better quality Gram Panchayat Development Plans (GPDPs) , using the maps created under this programme. The Gram Panchayats are constitutionally mandated for preparation of Gram Panchayat Development Plans (GPDP) for economic development and social justice. The GPDP is based on a participatory process in convergence with schemes of all related Central Ministries/Line Departments related to 29 subjects listed in the Eleventh Schedule of the Constitution.
  • Present Coverage Area: The program is currently being implemented in six states - Haryana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, and Uttarakhand.
