The Maharashtra government has roped in Tata Institute of Social Science (TISS) to study the development of Muslim community in the state. In the past, the Mehmoodur Rehman Committee had submitted a report to then-CM Prithviraj Chavan after a similar study in 2013.

The state government has approved a budget of Rs 33.9 lakh for the study. This group will study whether the Muslim community has benefited from the government's schemes in the last few years.

The TISS has been asked to submit a report on the efforts made by the government for the development of Muslims and other minority communities.

The study will cover a total of 56 areas that have a majority Muslim population. The aim of the study is to bring the Muslim community into the mainstream by studying their education, economic, and social conditions.

The study will also suggest measures to increase the participation of Muslim communities in various areas of development.
