In an order issued by the Central Waqf Office, 38 number of Shops under Waqf ID: JK-039559 have been brought under direct administrative control of Waqf on present rent structure till further orders. Administrator Kakapora/Newa Unit has been directed to collect rent from the Shopkeepers henceforth & Estates Wing of the Board has been directed to make necessary entries in the Inventory of directly administered Waqf properties.
Pertinently, a large number of Waqf Notified Properties have been ignored over the years & left outside the administrative control of Waqf which has caused huge revenue losses to the Waqf Board.
