Online Haj Application Deadline Extended to Feb 15
This time there was a three-month window to submit Haj applications online, but despite this, few people had applied for the pilgrimage.
The Haj Committee of India has extended the deadline for completing online application forms from January 31 to February 15.
This time there was a three-month window to submit Haj applications online, but despite this, few people applied for the pilgrimage, a committee member said.
Haj Committee, Managing Director Yakub Shekhawat said, “This year fewer forms were filled in, so the last date has been extended. So far, just over 78,000 people from across the country have applied for the Haj.
He said that in view of the low numbers, the committee has extended the deadline for submitting applications until February 15. In Uttar Pradesh, only 7,182 people completed the form, with a maximum of 478 people from Moradabad.
As many as 433 people filled out applications from Lucknow, and in Rae Bareli, 316 people filled out the form. No requests were received from Chitrakoot and Mainpuri, while only five people requested Haj from Lalitpur,” he said.
