NEW DELHI: PM Narendra Modi on Friday launched two web portals – eGram Swaraj & Swamitva Yojana – for accelerating the pace of development in India’s villages. The eGram Swaraj app will provide panchayats a single interface to complete development projects. The app will help in accelerating projects in villages from planning to completion.
Swamitva Yojana will use drones in the mapping of properties in villages. This will help in reducing disputes over property. The portal will help in making it easier for villagers to avail loans from banks.
The Prime Minister also interacted with Gram Panchayats from across the country on the Panchayati Raj Day.
“The initiative is a part of the Digital India program in the country and wants to promote e-governance of the Panchayats in villages. This way, villages will be able to work and govern and digitally, thus, bringing about digital literacy in the villages,’’ said a government statement.
