Improvement in Condition of Backward Communities and Minorities

From the Human Development Report, 2011 prepared by the Institute of Applied Manpower Research( an autonomous body of the Planning Commission) it appears that the condition of the backward communities and minorities has improved in general when compared with the condition in the past. Across religious group the incidence of poverty among muslims in rural areas is actually less than the aggregate, while amongst Christians and Sikhs the same is considerably lower than the aggregate. The unemployment rate according to the Report among SC and ST workers has decreased in both rural and urban areas and for muslim there is a similar pattern.. The three groups (SCs/STs/ muslims) are converging towards the national average in terms of literacy rate.

This was stated by Sh Niong Ering, the Minister of State for Minority Affairs in response to a written question in Lok Sabha Yesterday.
