Our LocationBelda, Paschim Medinipore

Minority Cell


The minorities of our society including Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists and others exhibit deficits and deprivation in practically all dimensions of development. The same may be true with some variation in case of the other minorities. For eradication of social disparities, various provisions were made in the Indian Constitution. Our Constitution enshrined democratization as one of the main objectives of education and anticipated the democratic expansion of education to serve social and economic upward mobility. Indeed, historically education was confined to certain sections of the society and did exclude large sections of the population, making it highly undemocratic in matters of access. This exclusion in education created ever expanding disparities that adversely affected the disadvantaged groups of the society. Since higher education is a tool for social and economic equality, the UGC has been addressing national concerns of access, equality, while ensuring the standard of quality and relevance of education by implementing policies of the Government of India and promoting several schemes and programmes for the disadvantaged groups that would help in eliminating social disparities.

Minority Cell in Belda College functions with the aim of protecting the minority communities in the institution. The cell strives to provide facilities for the empowerment of various minority groups in terms of religious and linguistic identities. The cell encourages students to connect with various policies and financial support provided by governmental and non-governmental agencies. It also facilitates in conducting events and programmes for promoting minority communities in the institution.
