Modi govt to develop educational institutions and hospitals on Waqf properties, provide free UPSC coaching for Muslim girls

The Union Minister, on Tuesday, had talked about connecting Madrassas with the formal education system in order to enable the students of these seminaries to contribute to the development of the society.

According to the latest schemes launched by the Modi government, Waqf properties across the country will be geo-tagged, digitised and 100% funding will be provided by the government to develop schools, colleges, hospitals, community centres, common centres and hostels under the Pradhan Mantri Jan Vikas Karyakra.


Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi while chairing the 80th meeting of the Central Waqf Council said that geotagging and digitalisation of the waqf properties which are around 5.77 lakh across the country, will ensure transparency and safety of records. He said that the government plans to utilise the waqf properties for educational empowerment and employment-oriented skill development of the needy.

Naqvi said that earlier government had identified 90 districts for minority communities’ development but the Modi government has expanded the number of such districts to 308. “GIS/GPS mapping of the Waqf properties has been initiated with the help of IIT Roorkee and Aligarh Muslim University. The Central Waqf Council has provided video conferencing facilities to 20 State Waqf boards and it would be provided in the remaining State Waqf boards by the end of this year”, said Naqvi.

The government is also planning to provide free coaching for UPSC, Banking and State services exams.
