Increasing the Budget Allocation for Minorities

Increasing-the-Budget-AllocHyderabad: Government intention of increasing the budget allocation for minorities from Rs 1,032 crore to Rs 1,105 crore has raised many an eyebrows as it spent only less than 30% of the allocation during the last year.
The huge funds for minorities in 2015-16 budget and it would be of no use when there are no specific welfare schemes beside ‘shaadi mubarak’ to be spent upon. The allocation as per the proportion of population, could only allocate 0.95% to the minorities even though there are 14% of minorities in the state.
Even though 80% of the minorities are in below poverty line and 92% are employed in unorganized sector, lack of clarity over utilization of these funds would prove futile.
“Most of them are crushed under the burden of interest from private financers as no bank extends loan to them”, he says.
“Rather than indulging in jugglery of figures, the government should help the minorities economically”, ghayas demanded.
