NewsDesk, Sept 22 -The Tata Institute of Social Science (TISS) has been enlisted by the Maharashtra government to do research on the growth of the Muslim population in the region. After conducting a similar investigation in 2013, the Mehmoodur Rehman Committee previously gave a report to the then-CM Prithviraj Chavan.
A budget of Rs 33.9 lakh has been allotted by the state government for the study. This panel will investigate whether recent government initiatives have helped the Muslim community.
The government has ordered the TISS to provide a report on the initiatives taken by the administration to support the growth of Muslim and other minority populations.
The study will be included in a total of 56 localities with a Muslim majority. By examining their educational, economic, and social circumstances, the study seeks to integrate the Muslim population into society.
The study will also include recommendations for how to boost Muslim communities’ involvement in various development initiatives.
