New Haj House near RGIA

Special Correspondent

State government finalises 10-acre Wakf land


The new premises for Haj House will be constructed at a cost of Rs. 12.5 crore

Kiran gives nod for the construction in line with a promise he made during Rachabanda


HYDERABAD: The State government has, in principle, finalised the 10 acre Wakf land near the Shamshabad International Airport for construction of the new Haj House.

The new building would be constructed at a cost of close to Rs.12.5 crore and Minority Welfare Minister Mohd. Ahmedullah said the existing Haj House premises at Nampally would be handed over to the Wakf Board. Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy gave his nod for construction of the new premises in line with a promise he made during the Rachabanda programme in the old city. The Chief Minister reviewed the functioning of the Minorities Welfare Department with Minister Mohd. Ahmedullah and senior officials on Thursday.

He asked the officials concerned to explore options for setting up study circle for minorities on the lines of AP Study Circle and BC Study Circle and said it could function from the premises of the proposed Haj House.

Speaking to reporters later, Mr. Ahmedullah said the government decided to sanction diet and maintenance allowances to minority students on par with the students hailing from SC/ST/BC communities. An amount of Rs.19 crore benefitting 1.57 lakh students would be released accordingly.

The government had sanctioned Rs.57 lakh for Dairatul Maarif Osmania, situated on the OU campus, for preservation and promotion of oriental literature like Persian and Arabic languages.

The meeting decided to review the status of the incomplete Urdughar-cum-shadikhanas taken up at different places and a proposal to convert some of them into shopping complexes was mooted.

On the encroachment of the Wakf properties, the meeting had asked the officials concerned to examine the proposal for setting up an exclusive Commissionerate that could safeguard land and other properties.
