New Delhi: Taking forward computerization of Wakf boards, 14 State Wakf Boards (WFB) have completed setting up a Central Computing Facility (CCF) while funds have been released to 26 out of 30 SWBs in the last three years, Minister of State for Minority Affairs Vincent Pala said here on Thursday.

In a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha, Pala said that "based on the recommendations of the Joint Parliamentary Committee on Wakf, the scheme for computerization of records of State Wakf Boards (SWBs) was launched in December, 2009, with central financial assistance."

The scheme envisages development of a web-based software named "Wakf Management System of India (WAMSI)" to host a centralized data base of Wakf properties for all SWBs in four modules which have been developed and launched, he said.

On delay in release of funds, Pala said "since complete proposals from all state /Wakf Boards were received on different dates, the release of funds got delayed."
