All Waqf properties to be geo tagged: Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi

New Delhi, June 12, 2019-

The government has launched a programme for geo-tagging and digitisation of Waqf properties across the country to ensure their better utilisation for social welfare, Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said on Wednesday. There are around 5.77 lakh registered Waqf properties across the country.

Chairing the 80th meeting of Central Waqf Council (CWC) here, Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that a programme had been launched on a war-footing for 100 per cent geo-tagging and digitisation of all Waqf properties so as to ensure transparency and safety of records.

This will ensure that the Waqf properties are utilised for educational empowerment and employment-oriented skill development for the needy, especially economically backward girls, in areas which are deprived of such facilities since Independence, said Naqvi.

The government has initiated GIS/GPS mapping of Waqf properties with the help of IIT Roorkee and the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).

He said the government was developing schools, colleges, ITIs, skill development centres, multi-purpose community centres, Hunar hubs, hospitals, business and common service centres on Waqf properties across the country.

While just 90 districts were been identified for minority communities’ development during the earlier governments, Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government increased the number to cover 308 districts, the Minister said.

He said a five-member committee headed by Justice (Retd) Zakiullah Khan to review Waqf properties lease rule had submitted its report and the government was taking necessary action on its recommendations.

The CWC was providing financial assistance to state Waqf boards for digitisation of records so that they could complete the process within a time-frame.

The CWC has provided video-conferencing facilities to 20 state Waqf boards and will extend it include the remaining by year end, the Minister said.   (Agency)
