Only 47 Minority institutions given funds so far under IDMI scheme

Thursday March 17, 2011 05:40:21 PM, Staff Reporter

Malegaon: The Congress-led UPA government had in 2008 announced the Infrastructure Development of Private Aided/Unaided Minority Institutes (Elementary Secondary/Senior Secondary schools) (IDMI) scheme with much of a fanfare. However, it revealed March 16 that only 47 minority institutions had been given funds under this scheme so far.


"During 2009-10, grant was given to 22 minority institutions of Government of Uttar Pradesh. During 2010-11, till date, grant has been given to 15 institutions of Kerala, 5 institutions of Maharashtra and 5 institutions of Madhya Pradesh", Minister of State for Minority Affairs Vincent H. Pala said in reply to a question in the Lok Sabha yesterday.


He also said that no grant was given to any institution of any State during 2008-09.


The Centrally Sponsored scheme for Infrastructure Development of Private Aided/Unaided Minority Institutes (Elementary Secondary/Senior Secondary schools) (IDMI) came into existence in December, 2008


Pala also informed the House that the funds allocated under IDMI are utilized for strengthening of educational infrastructure and physical facilities in the existing elementary/secondary/senior secondary schools including additional classrooms, science/computer laboratories, library rooms, toilets, drinking water facilities, hostel buildings and other such facilities.


The minister, however, did not reveal how many institutions had so far applied for the grant under this scheme.


There are hundreds of Minority institutions in India which are mostly running under challenging conditions.
