Minority Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on Thursday told parliament his ministry has a mechanism to regularly monitor the progress in implementation of various development schemes for the minorities undertaken by the government.

"Review of progress of implementation of the schemes is done through periodic review meetings and through the memorandum of understanding between the Ministry of Minority Affairs and the National Minorities Development and Finance Corporation," Khurshid said in the Lok Sabha.

He also said that monitoring implementation of the Prime Minister's 15-point Programme for the welfare of the minorities is done by the ministry every quarter and by committee of secretaries and by the cabinet every six months.

"Regular monitoring of the implementation of welfare schemes include physical and financial progress, timeline and consideration of problems faced by the implementing agency," Khurshid added.
