New Delhi: The central government Wednesday said it would implement four more schemes for the welfare of minorities this financial year after an allocation of Rs.11 crore was made in the budget of 2010-11 for the new plans.

These include strengthening of the state waqf boards, interest subsidy on educational loans for overseas studies, promotional activities for linguistic minorities, and a scheme for containing population decline of small minority community.

Waqf boards are panels that look after Muslim property.

"With this new clutch of schemes, the total number of schemes of the Ministry of Minority Affairs will soar to 16," a ministry official said.

The strengthening of the waqf boards scheme will be centrally sponsored.
