113 crore savings on Haj pilgrimage due to low GST:- According to Union Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, this year the estimated savings of Haj pilgrims is about 113 crore rupees. The reason for this is that the central government has been reduced from 18% GST to 5% on Haj.
For the first time in India after independence, a total of 2340 Muslim women had applied for Haj. Of which 2300 Muslim women will go to Hajj without Muharram. This time Modi Government did not organize any lottery. Earlier, Muslim women were selected for the Hajj by lottery.
During the inauguration of a new office of Haj in Delhi, Naqvi said that this time around 1, 64,902 Haj were received, which has a record in itself. This is happening in India for the first time where Muslims are going to Hajj without any subsidy. Of these, 48% of the Muslim women are also included. On Haj, the GST will come in the rental work.
