A. Organizational Development
1. Historical Review of AICMEU
On Monday, 29th June 2009 the members of the Governing Board of AICMEU met to make historical review the working of AICMEU. After discussion and evaluation of AICMEU’s 25 years performance they resolved that AICMEU should revamp its basic and old schemes like employment information and vocational guidance, Help handicap rehabilitation scheme, and centralized zakat system; improve the institutional services of computer centre; and phase out the services of general education, scholarship scheme and technical education. In future the schemes related to general education would be executed through Indian Literacy Mission Trust.
2. Silver Jubilee Celebration
To arrange required fund to hold the Silver Jubilee Progarmmes of AICMEU, the Hon. Treasurer, Mr. Etibar Shah Rahim Khan has launched Silver Jubilee Fund with his own contribution of Rs. 10,000/-. There has been no progress in other planned works like preparing Vision Document of Indian Muslims and holding workshop on Economic Development of Indian Muslims. Similarly the task to strengthen the zonal and divisional committees for AICMEU has not been taken up.
3. Multi – State Cooperative Credit Society.
Since registration of AICMEU to economically uplift the weaker sections of the society in accordance with Islamic Economic Principles, there was need of a sharia compliant financial institution which resulted into the formation of AICMEU’s Baitulmal Coop. Credit Society Ltd. under the Maharashtra cooperative Act in 1984. In spite of its successful operation, AICMEU realized inherent weakness in terms of its area of operation (limited to Mumbai only) and lack of provision to invite funds and declare dividend (Halal profits) on investment deposits. This compelled AICMEU to search for an alternative. It was in the year 1997 when the first attempt was made to convert AICMEU’s Baitulmal into a multi state society, but after continuous efforts, the proposal was returned back with one instruction or other. Lastly AICMEU was asked to re-apply under the new Multi-state Cooperative Societies Act 2002.
After three modified submissions, finally Janseva Cooperative Credit Society Ltd. has been registered under Multi State Cooperative Societies Act 2002 (39 of 2002) on dated 15th day of March 2010 vide registration Number MSCS/CR/335/2010 by the Central Registrar of Cooperative Societies, Department of Agriculture and Cooperation, Ministry of Agriculture, Govt. of India.
Though the registered office of the Janseva Cooperative Credit Society Ltd. is again in Mumbai, the society shall work in the following twelve states of India –
1) Andhra Pradesh, 2) Bihar, 3) Chattisgarh,
4) Delhi, 5) Karnataka, 6) Madhya Pradesh,
7) Maharashtra, 8) Orissa, 9) Rajasthan,
10) Tamil Nadu, 11) Uttar Pradesh and 12) West Bengal.
4. Promotion of Self-Help Groups for promoting of Micro Finance
Considering the potential of Mahila Arthink Vikas Mahamdal (MAVIM) - a semi government organ for poverty alleviation through SHG Bank linkages scheme, AICMEU entered into an agreement with MAVIM to facilitate SHG among poor Muslim women to enable them avail benefits from such micro finance schemes.
AICMEU has developed 36 groups comprised of 508 members in Mumbai by March 2010. Eighteen groups after attaining age of maturity got interest free revolving fund of Rs. 10,000 each from MAVIM. We have also arranged 7 vocational programs to provide financial literacy and leadership development training to SHG’s members.
Though this scheme bears interest after considering the inadequate alternative system, the office bearers of AICMEU not only busy in developing alternative Islamic Micro Finance Model for poor Indian women, but also taking active part in advocacy of Islamic Banking at national level in coordination with other organizations.
5. Introduction of Islamic Micro Finance Products
The designing and introduction of Islamic Micro Finance Products has been under progress and expectedly will be introduced soon with inception of its working module by Janseva Cooperative Credit Society Ltd.
B. Employment Information and Vocational Guidance
At AICMEU’s Employment Information and Vocational Guidance Centre during 2009-10 we registered 969 jobseekers against 654 vacancies. We provided interview related tips to 135 jobseekers and arranged 1,357 interviews to successfully place 442 jobseekers in local employment market with salary ranging between Rs. 3,000 to Rs. 15,000 per month. The monthly performance of the centre is as below –
No. of Placement
Compared to year 2008-09, the centre has registered growth rate of 44.4% in registered job applicants and 16.4% in placement of jobseekers after interviews. In year 2008-09 only 379 applicants were placed in the market from total 671 registered job applicants. IN 2008-09 only 57 applicants were guided but in 2009-10 total 135 candidates received tips about facing interviews. However the growth rate in receipt of vacancies is just 5.5% because in 2009-10 we received 654 vacancies compared to 620 in year 2008-09. During 2009-10 we collected Rs. 48,450 as registration fees. Rs. 5,000 was collected as Employer’s club membership fees while Rs. 5,000 was collected as donation.
It has been realized that advancement of www.login4job.com need at least one qualified and experienced management graduate in human resource with IT background which is not affordable in our stipulated budget. Thus the planned work to advance the online employment database programme was not taken by anyone. Without advancement of the program, there was no scope to promote it in and around Mumbai.
