Wednesday - September 13, 2017 9:20 pm , Category : EDUCATION

Lucknow Sep 13 (IANS) In a major but controversial decision the Uttar Pradesh government on Wednesday stopped funds to 46 madrassas.



According to a Minority Welfare Department official the action followed a probe which suggested that these madrassas were not functioning within the parameters defined for them.

A total of 560 madrassas in the state get government subsidy. A committee of district magistrates inspectors of schools and minority welfare officers are mandated by the Bharatiya Janata Party government to certify the use of these funds.

After a two-month scrutiny by these district level committees the grant to 46 madrassas had been stopped along with salaries of teachers the official said.
