Wakf boards’ data to go digital

“Computerisation of the records of the State Wakf Boards will involve preparing a detailed inventory of wakf properties and creation of a centralised and web-enabled data base, which would help RTI applicants to get proper information regarding issues relating to such properties,” a source in the Ministry of Minority Affairs told Deccan Herald.

CEO of Karnataka Board of Wakfs would be a member of the Project Management Committee, which would be headed by the DDG of National Informatics Centre (NIC). The scheme of computerisation would be implemented across all the 29 State Wakf Boards during the plan period 2009-2012 at a total cost of Rs 22.84 crore. In the Budget Estimate of 2009-2010, an amount of Rs 10 crore has been earmarked for this purpose. While the Ministry of Minority Affairs would oversee the entire project and look after fund allocation and management, the state governments would set up committees for coordination with field departments for effective implementation with two representatives as experts from outside the Government and one from IT Department.
