About Us

According to the 2011 census, the population of the minority in Karnataka is about 96,00,475, which is 15.92 per cent of the total population of the state. The Muslims, Christians, Jains, Buddhists, Sikhs and Parsis living in the state belong to the religious minority. Most of them are below the poverty line and their social and economic status is worrisome and the government is implementing projects for the development of their all-round development for the Karnataka Backward Classes Development Corporation (renamed Backward Classes Development Corporation).

The Karnataka Backward Classes Development Corporation was providing credit to minorities. However, the fact that the projects being implemented by the Karnataka Backward Classes Development Corporation do not have much impact on improving the status of the minority minority, and the Government headed by the then Chief Minister, the late Ramakrishna Hegde, set up a separate corporation called the Karnataka Minority Development Corporation on 07.02.1986 to improve the social and economic status of the minorities of the state.
