During 11th Five Year Plan, Multi-sectoral Development Programme (MsDP), was implemented in 90 Minority Concentration Districts (MCDs) identified on the basis of substantial minority population and backwardness parameters as per Census 2001

 

During 11th Five Year Plan, Multi-sectoral Development Programme (MsDP), was implemented in 90 Minority Concentration Districts (MCDs) identified on the basis of substantial minority population and backwardness parameters as per Census 2001.  The programme was continued in these 90 MCDs during 2012-13 also. The programme has been restructured from 2013-14 for implementation in the blocks/towns/clusters identified on the basis of minority population and backwardness. During 11th Plan and 2012-13 projects of Rs. 4843.64 crore have been approved for implementation in these 90 MCDs.  

 

The District Level Committees and State Level Committees, constituted for implementation of the Prime Minister’s New 15 Point Programme, are the Oversight Committees at the District and State levels to monitor the progress of implementation of MsDP.  The State Governments/UT Administrations are required to submit quarterly progress reports on the implementation of MsDP to this Ministry. At the Central level, there is a three tier monitoring mechanism to review the progress of implementation of MsDP. The Empowered Committee at the Centre under the chairmanship of Secretary, Ministry of Minority Affairs, serves as the Oversight Committee to monitor the progress of implementation of MsDP.  The progress under MsDP is also reviewed on half yearly basis by the Committee of Secretaries (CoS) along with the PM’s New 15 Point Programme and then reported to the Union Cabinet. The progress of implementation of the programme is also monitored by this Ministry with the States/UTs through regular meetings and conferences as well as visits of officials.

 

The State Level Committee for PM’s New 15 Point Programme is headed by the Chief Secretary with members consisting of the Secretaries and Heads of Departments implementing the schemes under the 15 Point Programme, representatives from the Panchayati Raj Institutions/Autonomous District Councils, three representatives from reputed non-governmental institutions dealing with minorities and three such other members considered appropriate by the state government/UT administration. Upto two Members of Parliament from Lok Sabha and one Member of Parliament from Rajya Sabha representing the State, are nominated to this Committee by the Central Government and two Members of the Legislative Assembly, are nominated by the State Government. However, one of the members included in the State Level Committee from Lok Sabha and Legislative Assembly should have been elected from any of the minority concentration district in those states which have these minority concentration districts (MCDs).
