Identification of Minority Concentration Districts

           

            Minority Concentration Districts (MCDs) have been identified on the basis of substantial minority population and relative backwardness in terms of selected socio-economic and basic amenities norms based on data of 2001 Census. Giving this information in written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha, Shri Vincent H. Pala, Minister of State for Minority Affairs, said that the minority population parameters used for identification of 90 Minority Concentration Districts (MCDs) were as follow:

            (i)         Districts with a ‘substantial minority population’ of at least 25% of the total population were identified in 29 States/UTs;

            (ii)        Districts having a large absolute minority population exceeding 5 lakhs and the percentage of minority population exceeding 20% but less than 25% were identified in 29 States/UTs;

            (iii)       In the six States/UTs, 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/UT were identified.

      The backwardness norms used for identification of minority concentration district were:

      (I) religion-specific socio-economic indicators at the district level –

            (i) literacy rate; (ii) female literacy rate; (iii) work participation rate; and (iv) female work   participation rate; and

      (II) basic amenities indicators at the district level –

            (i) percentage of households with pucca walls; (ii) percentage of households with safe       drinking water; (iii) percentage of households with electricity; and (iv) percentage of     households with water closet latrines.

      The Minister informed the House that by applying the above parameters, the Government identified 90 MCDs which are relatively backward and Multi-sectoral Development Programme (MsDP) is implemented in these districts. Shri Pala also informed the House that there is no proposal to bring more districts under MsDP.
