He said that about 70 per cent of the 2017-18 Budget, will be spent on programmes/schemes aimed at educational empowerment and skill development of Minorities.

Shri Naqvi said that the Modi Government is committed to provide quality education to students belonging to Minority communities and keepin this in mind, the Ministry of Minority Affairs is establishing 5 world class educational institutions which will provide education in technical, medical, Ayurved, Unani etc. fields across the country. A high-level committee, constituted on 10th January, 2017 to frame roadmap including places where these institutes will be established, will soon submit its report. Our target is to start academic session in these institutes from 2018. We have proposed 40 per cent reservation for girls in these institutions. About 100 Navoday Vidyalaya type schools will also be opened in Minority concentrated areas in the coming months. To ensure better education to every person belonging to poor sections a campaign "Tehrike Taleem" is being launched. Under which every needy person will be provided resources and facilities.

Thousands of Minority communities' schools and Madrasas have been connected with "3T"- Teachers, Tiffin and Toilets during last three months. These educational institutions also include institutions run by Gurudwaras and those run by Jain, Buddhist and Parsi community.

The Minister of State (I/C) for Minority Affairs said that while on one hand "Progress Panchayat" have proved to be a strong mission to fulfil our commitment to "Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas" and "Antyodaya", on the other hand "Hunar Haat" is providing encouragement, market and opportunity to master artisans belonging to Minority communities. Two "Hunar Haat" have been organised by the Ministry so far. More than 35 lakh people (about 26 lakh visitors at Baba Kharak Singh Marg, Connaught Place, about 9 lakh visitors at Pragati Maidan) visited these two "Hunar Haat".

Shri Naqvi said that with the theme "Craft Aur Cuisine Ka Sangam", the second "Hunar Haat" was unique in the sense that it showcased crafts and traditional cuisines brought from different parts of the country at "Bawarchikhana". The first "Hunar Haat" had been organized from 14 to 27th November at India International Trade Fair in November 2016. After huge success of these two "Hunar Haat", the Minority Affairs Ministry has decided to establish "Hunar Hub", to organize such events, in every state. Several states have come forward to provide land for the project. Next "Hunar Haat" will be organized at Puducherry, Mumbai, Lucknow, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Gauhati, Ahmedabad, Jaipur.

Shri Naqvi said that joining "Digital India" campaign launched by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the Ministry of Minority Affairs has made all its schemes and programmes digital/online. Even entire Haj process has been made online this time and also a Haj mobile app has been launched. A total of 1lakh 70 thousand pilgrims will go to Haj from India this year.
