Vimla Devi, who works as a wage labourer, said it was a great feeling to be able to own land.
"I am thankful to the state government for it because now I have my own place in my family and society," said Vimla, who lives in a village near Naubatpur in Patna.
Another beneficiary, Shakuntala Devi, said having ownership rights will help women be more assertive of their rights.
"At last, we can have a say in decisionmaking," she said.
