    Hon’ble Prime Minister has emphasized that all public welfare schemes should saturate with the objective that no citizen is left behind. Accordingly, theDoLR has set the target for saturation of basic components of the programme such as

    1. Computerization of record of rights
    2. Digitization of cadastral maps
    3. integration of record of rights (textual) and cadastral maps (spatial). The DILRMP has been extended from 2021-22 to 2025-26 with an outlay of Rs.875.00 crore by the Government of India.
