Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday lauded his government's liberalised drone policy and said that it will benefit the people living in the remote areas of the country. "Recently, many policy decisions were taken so that farmers, patients, people living in remote areas get maximum benefits from drone technology," said Modi.

"A large number of modern drones are made in India itself, in this also India should be self-reliant, for this PLI (production linked incentive) scheme has also been announced," he said.

He further said that the liberalised drone policy will give new heights to the villages of India, ANI news agency reported. 

"It is very important to remove country's villages, village property, land and house records from uncertainty and mistrust. That is why PM SWAMITVA scheme is going to become a huge strength of our brothers and sisters in the village," Modi declared. 

SVAMITVA is a government scheme of the Ministry of Panchayati Raj that aims to provide property rights to the residents of rural areas. The scheme will pave the way for using the property as a financial asset by villagers for taking loans and other financial benefits, just like in urban areas.

 It aims to demarcate inhabited lands in rural areas through the latest surveying drone technology. The scheme has also provided a boost to the ecosystem of drone manufacturing in the country, the Prime Minister's Office said.
