New Delhi: The Central government on Thursday claimed that the digitisation of all the state Waqf boards has been completed and a Geo Tagging/GPS mapping of Waqf property is being done on war footing by the prominent institutions. There are about 6 lakh 64,000 registered waqf properties spread across the country.
Questioning the claims, a former secretary of Central Waqf Council said digitization work of waqf records is yet to be completed in a transparent manner.
Addressing an orientation programme, organised by Central Waqf Council for officials of State Waqf Boards here today, Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that about 6 lakh 64,000 registered waqf properties are spread across the country.
