Multi-Sectoral Development Plans For Minority Concentration District

    A) Background-

    In order to ensure that the benefits of schemes and programmes of Ministry of Minority Affairs Government of India, reaches the relatively disadvantaged segments of society in the State of Haryana identitification of identify districts on the basis of minority population of Census 2001 and backwardness parameters. Thereafter, the position of these districts in terms of “backwardness” was evaluated against the two sets of socio-economic and basic amenities indicators. 90 Minority Concentration Districts in the State of Haryana Mewat and Sirsa District were identified and selected.

    To focus attention of government programmes and schemes on these districts, the following has been advised to the Central Ministries/Departments to prepare their plans in a manner that these districts get the required attention and resources:-

    1) The schemes and programmes for poverty alleviation, education health and other welfare schemes of government may be focused in these districts.

    2) Existing schemes for infrastructure development, such as rural electrification, road connectivity (PMGSY) etc. may be taken up in these districts on a priority basis.

    3) The provisions for basic amenities such as pucca housing, safe drinking water supply, water closet toilets and electricity for each household may be made.

    4) Schemes included in the Prime Minister’s New 15 point programme for the Welfare of Minorities may be implemented in these districts vigorously targeting each minority household and village.

    For continuation of implementation of MSDP for the remaining period of the 14th Finance Commission period from 2017-18 to 2019-20 an evaluation study of implementation of MSDP and its impact was conducted by Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA). The Government also had interetions with all stakeholders, elected representatives, conferences with States/UTs, Progress Panchayats with the general public etc to assess the impact of the programme have also been established. A general consensus emerged for further restructuring of MsDP to increase the area of coverage and to identify certain focus area to benefit the targeted communities and mitigate the problems. The programme has been revised by the Govt. of India and now is known as Pradhan Mantri Jan Vikas Karyakram (PMKVK).

    B) Objective

It will be implementated as a Centrally Sponsored Scheme. The PMJVK will continue to be implemented in MCBs, MCTs and COVs. However, criteria related to population and area coverage have been specified for MCTs and COVs.

The projects to be taken up under PMJVK would be related to creation of infrastructure mainly in the sectors of education, health and skill development. Also development of innovative schemes for improving the socio-economic and living conditions of minority communities and other communities living in the area.

    C) Parameters for identification of Minority Concentration Areas (MCA)

    The areas for implementation of PMJVK have been identified on the basis of substantial population of minority communities i.e. 25% of minority population in the area and backwardness parameters in the areas which are below the national average. The parameters for identification of Minority Concentration Areas are based on the data of Census, 2011.
