GULBARGA: Wakf Minister Qamarul Islam has expressed displeasure over the ‘dismal’ performance in registration of new wakf properties in the state.

 At a meeting to review the progress of the Wakf Board here on Friday, Islam directed the board to take effective steps to take up registration of wakf properties as per the provisions of section 41 of the Wakf Act, 1995. He asked the board to fix a target for officials to register new wakfs.

He said under section 47 of the Wakf Act, it is mandatory for the board to take up audit of wakf institutions.

It was also observed that the audit statements of wakf institutions submitted annually by the board are not satisfactory and discloses suppression of actual income of the institution. The board was directed to appoint auditors immediately to complete the audit within four months.

During the review it was revealed that the board has not released government grants for beneficiary institutions and the aid fund is still with the board. He instructed it to release the funds or it would be diverted to deserving institutions.

 The Minister directed the CEO of the Board to constitute managing committees for the 117 wakf institutions which are under the direct management of the board. On surveying wakf properties, the CEO was also directed to instruct all the wakf officers to submit survey report by July.

 It was also directed to recruit for 177 posts out of the 355 posts and fill the remaining on contract basis.
