The Indian Muslims account for 14.4% of the total Indian population, yet are among the poorest segment. The Sachar Committee is High Level Committee to examine the socio-economic and educational status of the Muslim community in India in a report claimed that as much as 31%, precisely one-third of Indian Muslims were dwelling below poverty line (income lesser than £1.7).
A report by National Council for Applied Economic Research (NCAER) has brought to light some astonishing figures, according to which three out of 10 Urban Muslims are poor i.e. officially come below the poverty line living on a monthly income of £6 and less. One in five rural Muslims comes below poverty line with an average monthly income of £3.70 throughout the year.
In 2007, AMP had launched AMP Employment Assistance Cell (EAC) with the core objective of supporting the underprivileged and creating economic empowerment by providing career opportunities to the unemployed youth.
