New Delhi: To reach out to minority votes ahead of the Delhi assembly elections in 2013, the Congress-led government Friday asked the state minority commission to facilitate the registration of eligible Madrasas which could be provided financial assistance for imparting "purposeful" education.

The decision came in the wake of absence of authentic data on the number of Madrasas in the capital which is the basic requirement to grant assistance to the seminaries.

This was decided at a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit who underlined the need for better education for more people belonging to the minority category.

"The Delhi Minorities Commission has been asked to facilitate registration/identification of eligible Madrasas. It has also been decided that the Education Department will call for applications for registration through advertisements in daily newspapers," said a statement from the chief minister's office.

"The Madrasas with enrolment of at least 50 students and already registered under the Societies Registration Act, Waqf Board and National Institute of Open Schooling will be considered initially for grant of assistance under a scheme for providing quality education in Madrasas," added the statement.

Eligible Madrasas will provide a per month salary of Rs.6,000 for graduate teachers and Rs.12,000 for post-graduate teachers.

Further, the eligible Madrasas will also be allotted a one time grant of Rs.50,000 for library books and teaching aids and another Rs.1 lakh for science and computer labs.
