Uttar Pradesh Extends Deadline For Madrassas To Register On Website
The Uttar Pradesh government has for the second time extended by 15 days the September 30 deadline for all the madrassas in the state to register themselves on the government website, an official said today. The state government had earlier fixed September 15 as the deadline for their registration, but it was extended by 15 days up to September 30 as there were some technical issues.
"The last date for registration of madrassas was September 30, which has been extended by 15 days," Registrar UP Madrassa Education Board Rahul Gupta told PTI here.
He said out of the 19,000 madrassas, 13,053 have so far registered themselves on the board's website.
The Uttar Pradesh government had on August 18 launched a website related to madrassas and orders were issued to upload all relevant information pertaining to the managing committee of the madrassas, teachers, students and other information by September 15.
The aim behind the move was to stop irregularities in the madrassas and bring a qualitative improvement in the Islamic institutions.
While 560 madrassas in the state are fully funded, 4,600 are partially funded.Read also:Portal Launched For Online Registration Of Madrassas In Uttar PradeshUP Clerics Divided Over Order To Film Independence Day CelebrationsIndependence Day 2017: UP Madarsa Shiksha Parishad Asks Madarsas To Unfurl National Flag On August 15Madarsas In Madhya Pradesh To Have Lessons On 'Importance Of Patriotism In Islam'
