About District Minority Cell
one of the important districts of “RARH-REGION” in West Bengal where
one-third of the total population of this district belongs to Minority
Communities. The Department of Minorities’ Development & Welfare,
Government of West Bengal constituted a District Level Committee for
Minorities’ Welfare in ten Minority Concentrated District. Birbhum is
one of them.
West Bengal Minorities’ Development & Finance Corporation has no infrastructure in the district and hence the District Level Committee has entrusted with function of screening, monitoring and evaluation of Self-Employment Programmes of the West Bengal i.e. Term Loan Scheme, Cluster Loan Scheme, Micro Credit Loan Scheme, Gas Oven Micro-credit Scheme etc. and Vocational Training Programme, Stipend for Meritorious Muslim students & Maulana Azad National Scholarship Scheme for Meritorious Girl students belonging to Minorities implemented by corporation.
We like to say that the performance of this
district is much better than other districts and continues to be also
encouraging to the other backward section of the notified minorities i.e.
Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs and Parsees with a view to promoting income
generating activities amongst the un-employed youths of the target group
for their economic upliftment.
The schemes have
been widely spread all over the district and the consistent perseverance
on the part of the district level committee as well as the grass root
level workers including the Recovery Agents and Panchayat functionaries
have been encouraging the people belonging to minority communities to come
forward for availment of the benefit extended by the corporation. They
have been developing their skill in various activities and taking every
effort to stand on their own feet subscribing to loan installment almost
regularly. They do not appear to have diverted the fund from the selected
one. As the beneficiaries have every confidence on the selection as made
by the head office of the corporation on the basis of the recommendation
of the District Level Committee. This programme is getting popularity day
by day amongst the people belonging to Minorities.
