Nai Manzil Yojana Nai Manzil Yojana: 

On 8 August 2015, Union Minister for Minority Affairs Dr. Najma Heptulla launched the new central scheme "Nai Manzil Yojana" to provide support to the educational and livelihood needs of minority communities, especially Muslims. Done in Patna, Bihar.

It is noteworthy that this scheme has been launched to improve the overall outlook and welfare of minorities in relation to the progress and empowerment of minority communities in the country.

Significantly, this was announced by the Union Finance Minister in the budget speech for the financial year 2015-16. This scheme provides a new direction and a new goal for all the students who have dropped out of school or have dropped out in the middle and those studying in madrasas.

The objective of this scheme is to provide educational participation to the trainees through bridge courses, so that they can get 12th and 10th grade certificates through distance education.

Along with this, they have to provide skill training on trade basis in 4 courses, which are as follows -
(1) manufacturing, (2) engineering, (3) services and (4) simple skills.

The scheme will cover people belonging to the age groups of 17 to 35 years from all minority communities as well as students studying in madrasas.

According to the 2001 census data, minorities constitute a little over 20% of India's 1,028 million population. Among them, Muslims constitute the largest minority, 13.4% followed by Christians 2.3%, Sikhs 1.9%, Buddhists 0.8%, Jains 0.4% and a very small number of Parsis.

The school dropout rate of minorities is very high, making it 14% at primary levels (as against national 2%) and 18% at secondary level (against national 3%). The work force participation rate of minorities is also lower than the national average (44% as against the national average of 54%) indicating lack of employability skills in the community.

The existing schemes of the government for the minority community provide scholarships for education for the minority population and limited activities for skill and leadership development. According to a 2013 survey conducted by EDCIL (India) Limited, Ministry of Human Resource Development, school dropout rates among Muslims are among the highest in the country and these dropouts occur mostly at the primary level. The Sachar Committee Report (2005) on the status of minorities in India also cites poor education outcomes in Muslims due to various reasons such as poverty, low probability of return from education, low access to schools, etc.

Therefore, it is important to create a program that will ensure access to education that results in direct returns in terms of jobs. Accordingly, the overall development of the minority community has been prepared through the Integrated Scheme of Education and Skill Development, which aims to address the lack of educational attainment and employability of minorities.

This will give a basic assessment, analyzing the economic and social background of each family etc.

It is to be implemented in a phased manner across the country. Minority dominated areas will be the main geographical targets.

Registered companies / firms / trusts / societies and / or government program implementing agencies (PIAs) will be appointed for this purpose.

For the leadership capacity development of minority women, women trained under the Nai Roshni Yojana of the Ministry of Minority Affairs will also be employed as motivators for this scheme. Similarly, community level structures like Self Help Groups (SHGs) can also be used for mobilization of youth. Under this scheme, the primary catchment area for the beneficiaries will be 1,228 community development blocks where the minority population is 25% or more of the total population as ascertained by the Ministry of Minority Affairs. 

Apart from these blocks, catchment areas can also be notified by the Steering Committee in consultation with the State Governments for implementation of the scheme.
