Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, experts from all over the world have been insisting that the ownership of land and house plays a big role in the development of the country.
He said, when there is a record of property, citizens gain confidence and new avenues for investment open up. The Prime Minister said, in the last 6 years, continuous work is being done to remove chronic shortages.
He said, today, without any discrimination in the country, everyone is developing and getting benefits of schemes with complete transparency.
