The Waqf Board Chairperson thanked the Deputy Commissioner for his assurance to help the Board in ground verification of the status of assets so that a faultless digital record base is created in the district.
“Waqf assets in Chenab valley have suffered a lot during past decades and we have decided to formulate a potent action plan to make Waqf properties and assets in the valley productive,” said Dr Darakhshan. She said that due to the negligence and faulty management of the earlier administrations, Waqf properties and assets have suffered a huge loss and we are committed to correct the faults so that no scope for any such mismanagement remains in the system.
“Physical verification of the assets and the digitization of records will be done soon with the help of the district administration and we will ensure that each and every property is converted into a productive unit,” said Waqf Board Chairperson.
