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."
