This chapter focuses on impacts of specific flagship government programmes in the wake of the Sachar Committee Report. The formation of Ministry of Minority Affairs that occurred in a particular political context requiring expediency. However, analysis of MMA programmes since 2006 illustrates a missed opportunity to mainstream minority development initiatives within line ministries. Second, this chapter specifically evaluates the Multi-sectoral District Development Programmes (MsDDPs) that supposedly directs resources to minority concentration districts. Conclusions show MsDDPs failing to meet targets as resources are co-opted through a fallacy of proportions in minority-concentration identification and as states struggled implementing centrally sponsored schemes.
