Development of infrastructure in Minority Institutions – No Minority institution is the beneficiary during three years

Hyderabad, January 05:

(Siasat News) The complaints of the Minorities that they are not included in the process of progress of the country still holds good. Even after 60 years of Independence of India. Minorities do not get opportunities of getting the welfare schemes of the Govt. Sometimes, Govt. announces certain schemes to please Minorities with an intention of getting their votes but these schemes are never implemented. This is the reason that every year the Ministry of Minorities Affairs is not in a position to spend all the amounts earmarked for the welfare of Minorities. There are many reasons for not implementing these schemes.

In some cases, state Government puts hurdles in implementing them. In certain cases, the Central Ministry of Minorities Affairs delays in the processing of these schemes to such an extent that the applicants keep quiet or lose hopes of getting grants.

One such scheme was launched by the Department of School Education of the Ministry of Minorities Affairs of Govt. of India. This scheme was introduced to improve. Infrastructure in the institutions of Minorities. It is very surprising that for the past three years, not a single Minority Instituion from A.P. has been able to benefit out of this scheme. There is a network of Minority Institutions in the state and A.P. is very prominent in establishing Minority Institutions.

Due to the lethargy and inefficiency of the State Govt. and also on account of lack of publicity, no institution belonging to Minorities was able to submit any proposals for getting any financial assistance from this scheme for the past three years, whereas Minority Institutions of other states got crores of monetary aid.

Under this scheme financial assistance is given to a Minority Institution for the development of infrastructure to the extent of 75% of the total amount not exceeding Rs. 50 Lakh. This scheme could be implemented in Govt., Private, aided or unaided schools. The amount sanctioned could be utilized for the construction of additional classrooms, establishment of computer lab, science lab, library, toilets, providing drinking water etc. During 2009-2010, Rs. 448 crore were granted to 22 schools, in 2010-2011, Rs. 22047 crore were given to 122 institutions and in 2011-2012 a sum of Rs. 48.83 was sanctioned to 259 institutions. It is very deplorable that during the past three years, not a single Minority Institution from A.P. could get benefit out of this scheme. The applicant institutions are required to submit their proposals in the prescribed form through the State Govt. After satisfying, the Govt. recommends these cases to Govt. of India.

It is not true that Minority Institutions are not coming forward to implement this scheme. The fact is that Govt. of A.P. did not publicize this scheme to Minority Institutions.

The Department of Minorities Welfare of Govt. of A.P. should give a wide publicity to this scheme. It should call for applications from Minority Institutions and send them to Central Govt. for sanctioning grants. If this is not done, Minority Institutions would be deprived of getting any financial assistance under this scheme from the Central Govt. next year also.

State Govt. has not yet formulated the committee to process grant-in-aid applications. It should form this committee as early as possible.

Shame on Siasat

Dear Zahid Ali or ZAK

As salam alay kum

gone through your article good one, but it is something you have copied from the speech of Mr. Akbar uddin Owaisi, it is the same thing he has said with a broad n open discussion and out of anger, you just highlighted the other issues and didnt mention all these things. now you are or have mention it separately to show that you are doing a good work, you always wake up after MIM tell things.

We all know where our politicians stand in terms of corruptions , not only Owaisi Brothers all n every one is eating the money of Indian ppl and all the politicians from the world do eat money and do scams regardless of religion, but we need to look into the work done by them and issues raised by them.

presently you are moving hand in hand with TDP, that is babu, we all know what he has done to our A.P state ( good things ) but at the same time he ate huge amount of money and did scams as well, but ppl kept quite, becos they were getting what they needed.

so pls if you have guts n u r a face in the crowd then y dont you make ur own party by contesting in coming election, ppl of hyd need a change from owaisi brothers, are any one ready to take the challenge , we the ppl of Hyd are ready to support any one coming forward for Hyd,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, but till some one come forward we will keep continuing our support with MIM.

yours hyderabadi
