House Committee has expressed concern over the paltry rents of Waqf properties on prime spots of the city and proposed to increase the rents as per market value. House Committee for Waqf land inspected the Waqf properties and shops under them located at Makkah Madina Alauddin Waqf and Nabi Khana Maulvi Akber. Committee was astonished to know that the rent of the Waqf properties located on the prime spot is very nominal while the rent for other private shops in the same area is around 30 to 40 thousand rupees.
The committee talked to the tenants of Waqf properties and convinced them to increase the rent so that the Waqf revenue could increase and the amount could be spent as per mansha-e-Waqf.
House Committee chairman Bajireddy Govardhan and members Mohammed Farooq Husain, Amer Shakeel and Venkateshwara Reddy visited the Waqf properties along with Secretary Minority Welfare Syed Omer Jaleel, Director Minority Welfare Jalaluddin Akber and other high officials. The committee was surprised to know that some tenants are not paying rent to Waqf Board while some are paying just a few hundred rupees.
