Who are the Minority Communities?

Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists and Zoroastrians (Parsis) have been notified as minority communities under Section 2 (C) of the National Commission for Minorities Act 1992. As per Census 2001, the percentage of minorities in the country is about 18.4% of the total population of the country, of which Muslims are 13.4%; Christians 2.3%; Sikhs1.9% Buddhists 0.8% and Parsis 0.007%. In Manipur, Christians are 34% and Muslims constitute 8.32% of the State’s population as per 2001 Census.

Minority Concentration Districts (MCDs):

90 Minority Concentration Districts (MCDs) have been identified by the Govt of India which are relatively backward and falling behind the national average in terms of socio-economic and basic amenities indicators. The religion-specific socio-economic indicators are literacy rate; female literacy rate; work participation rate; and female work participation rate. The basic amenities indicators are percentage of households with pucca walls; safe drinking water; electricity and water closet latrines. These 90 districts have a substantial minority population and are backward, with unacceptably low levels of socio-economic or basic amenities indicators, requiring focused attention and specific programme intervention.
There are 3 processes for identification of minority concentration districts. Firstly, districts with a substantial minority population of at least 25% of the total population. Secondly, districts having a large absolute minority population exceeding 5 lakhs and the percentage of minority population exceeding 20% but less than 25%. Thirdly, in the states where a minority community is in majority, districts having 15% of minority population other than that of the minority community in majority in that state.
Manipur has 6 Districts included in the list of 90 MCDs. They are Churachandpur, Tamenglong, Senapati, Ukhrul, Chandel and Thoubal.

Objectives of MsDP:

The MsDP is implemented in all MCDs in the country including the 6 MCDs in Manipur. The objective of the programme is to improve the socio-economic parameters of basic amenities for improving the quality of life of the people and reducing imbalances in the MCDs during the Eleventh Five Year Plan period. Identified development deficits are made through a district specific plan for provision of better infrastructure for school and secondary education, sanitation, pucca housing, drinking water and electricity supply, besides beneficiary oriented schemes for creating income generating activities. Absolutely critical infrastructure linkages like connecting roads, basic health infrastructure, ICDS centres, skill development and marketing facilities required for improving living conditions and income generating activities and catalyzing the growth process are also eligible for inclusion in the plan.     
This initiative is a joint effort of the Centre and the States for inclusive growth, and to accelerate development process and improve the quality of life of the people. The scheme aims at focused development programmes for backward minority concentration districts to help reduce imbalances and speed up development.

 Thrust of MsDP:

The thrust of the programme is to address the development deficits brought out by a baseline survey to improve the socio-economic parameters and the basic amenities parameters of the district as a whole so as to bring them at par with the national average. Critical infrastructure linkages that are required for optimizing service, economic opportunities and can act as a catalyst could also be taken up under this programme. It is also to be prepared in such a manner that these districts are saturated with schemes included in the PM’s New 15 Point Programme for the Welfare of Minorities within the Eleventh Plan period.

Baseline Survey:

MsDP Plan is prepared based on the baseline survey of the district carried out under the aegis of the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR) New Delhi or any suitable professional agency. The OKD Institute of Social Change & Development, Guwahati, was assigned by ICSSR for Manipur which carried out the baseline survey for the State.

Preparation of MsDP Plan:

The District Planning Committee/District LevelCommittee for implementation of the PM’s New 15Point Programme prepares MsDP Plan. This Plan is to have a district profile. It shall bring out the development deficits identified by the survey, indicate the strategy for addressing the deficits, propose projects/work to fill the development deficits either by topping up the funds of ongoing schemes/programmes of the Central Govt or propose projects which are not catered to by existing schemes/programmes of the Central and State Govts.
The committee shall ensure that the projects included in the plan have not been sanctioned or proposed under any other scheme of the State/Central Govt or any other source of funding. It shall ensure that there is no duplication with other public-funded schemes with similar objectives being implemented in the targeted districts. It should also be ensured that the plan is in consonance with the annual plans and Eleventh FYP.
The plan shall contain concept papers on each of the prioritized projects accompanied by a socio-economic feasibility report.

Detailed Project Reports (DPRs):

Each project proposal should be accompanied by a DPR. It shall be prepared by the line department concerned of the State or through the agency which will be executing the project. The DPR should, inter alia, include the basic information and must establish its economic and technical viability. It should have project implementation schedule, certification that the cost estimates are as approved by the competent authorities of the State and that the costs are based on the latest Schedules of rates in force in the State, intended economic/social benefit and target beneficiaries etc.   

Principles for formulation of MsDP Plan:

  1. Plan shall be based on baseline survey.
  2. Plan should contain projects prioritized with inter-se priorities among targeted sectors namely primary/secondary education, drinking water supply, electricity, health, sanitation, housing and income generating activities.
  3. It should be ensured that there is no duplication with other schemes with similar objectives.
  4. All projects are to be completed within the Eleventh Plan period.
  5. Peoples’ participation and involvement of NGOs, SHGs are to be ensured at every stage.
