Scheme for computerization of records of the State Waqf Boards during 2009-2012

1. Background

The Joint Parliamentary on Waqf submitted its 9th report to Parliament on 23.10.2008. The Joint Parliamentary Committee on Waqf in its 9th Report recommended computerization of the records of State Waqf Boards at an estimated cost of Rs.25 Crore. The proposal was considered in the Ministry. The Prime Minister has approved the proposal and a token provision of Rs 10 Crore has also been made in BE 2009-10.

2. Objectives

The Waqf properties are spread out all over the country but even the basic survey of waqf properties have not been done in most States. There is hardly any development of waqf properties and a very substantial income that the waqf properties could have generated for the welfare schemes of the community are lost because of non-development and large scale encroachment of waqf properties.

Therefore, to streamline record keeping, introduce transparency, and to computerize the various functions/processes of the Waqf Boards and to develop a single web based centralized application, Joint Parliamentary Committee on Waqf, in its Ninth Report, recommended computerization of the records of the State Waqf Boards and Central financial assistance to the these Boards.

The broad objectives of computerizing the records of the State Waqf Boards are:

  • Properties Registration Management
  • Muttawalli Returns Management
  • Leasing of Properties Management
  • Litigations Tracking Management
  • Documents Archiving & Retrieval Management
  • GIS of Waqf Properties
  • Funds Management to Mosques, Durgah, Kabristan, Imams, Muazzins, Widows, Girls Marriages, Scholarships, Schools, Hospitals, Dispensaries, Musafirkhanas, Skill Development Centres, etc.
  • Loans Management for Development Of Urban Waqf properties
  • Right to information Act compliance

3. The computerization aims to achieve phase-wise objectives. In the First Phase, objectives are as under:

  • Ensuring proper survey and cross checking of Waqf data from various computer data bases maintained at the state level, such as by Revenue Departments etc.
  • Improving office efficiency and preparation of timely reports on various administrative matters.
  • Creation of a centralized and web-enabled data base for use by various stake holders.
  • Properties Registration Management of Waqf Boards.
  • Muttawalli Returns Management system.
  • Leasing of Properties Management system.
