Research Toolkit to Monitor Minority Rights

Background

The PM’s new 15-point programme proved to be a turning point in the history of minorities in India as it focused national attention on some of the most vulnerable communities living in the country. The revitalized version of the 2005 programme aims at improving education, employment, skill development, living conditions and security among minorities by bringing them under certain select schemes and interventions.

The rationale behind the revamped interventions is to bridge the gap between opportunities and the minority communities who have been unable to access them due to discrimination on varied grounds and on many levels. The emphasis has moved on from identification of problems faced by these communities to the solutions and interventions possible along with gauging the larger realities to assess vulnerability and discrimination even in the implementation of Government schemes brought particularly for these communities.
