Authors(3) :-Abdul Sajid Quazi, Nuzhat Rizvi, Nawaz Khan

National Minority Commission has identified Muslims as minorities along with Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains on the basis of religion. Out of these religious minorities Muslims are the largest ones. In spite of being the largest minority they are lagging behind in education and economic in comparison with other religious minorities. Literacy which is a first step to education is lowest of the Muslim minority and inter-state variation in their literacy rates is also very high. In the light of these contexts, this paper presents a brief discussion of schemes, policies and programs implemented for the development of the minority. Thereafter, the paper tries to explain the functions of schemes in terms of objective, access, participation, retention of Minority students in the states.
