Identification of Minority Concentration Districts

A list of 90 Minority Concentration Districts (MCDs) in the country has been prepared by the Ministry of Minority Affairs, Government of India on the basis of the 2001 census data on population, socio-economic indicators and basic amenities indicators. These districts are backward with unacceptably low levels of either socio-economic or amenities indicators or both and they are in urgent need of focused attention.

 

            In 1987, a list of 41 Minority Concentration Districts was prepared based on the data of census 1971. A single criterion of minority population in a district was applied for an identification of such districts. 

            It has been decided to prepare and implement area/problem specific special development plans for these 90 districts. It has also been decided to ensure that the benefit of programmes of poverty alleviation, education, health and provision of basic amenities etc., reach these districts in a focused manner. All Ministries/Departments concerned with such programmes are being advised suitably.

 

            The list of 90 MCDs is placed below: -
