Haj Committee of India has uploaded the information related to Direct Selection of Khadim-ul-Hujjaj from Uttar Pradesh and Assam States for Haj 2016. Haj Pilgrims should know that KuH play a very vital role in providing help to all Haj pilgrims at various stage of Haj pilgrimage. They are deputed from all States / UT in terms of norms of HCOI , as approved by Ministry of External Affairs ( MEA ).

While in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia ( KSA ), the KuH have to assist the Consulate General of India , Jeddah ( CGI) in looking after the welfare of Haj Pilgrims in an organised manner.
It has already been decided that full quota of KuH is utilized . To support the SHCs , 50% of the expenditure on the KuH shall be borne by HCOI and the remaining amount by respective State / UT Haj Committees.
The Consulate General of India, Jeddah has always asked that KuH should be there from all states / UT . However, UP was not sending any KuH since last 5 years due to some disagreement over criteria on the selection of KuH. So HCOI has decided to select KuH for the state directly. While Assam State has also expressed its inability to send KuH for Haj 2016 so did not nominated any KuH from Assam state. Thus HCOI will directly select 55 KuH from UP and 12 KuH from Assam.
