Haj Imp Notification – Change of Accommodation Category Green to Azizia
Consulate General of India ( CGI ), Jeddah has informed Haj Committee of India that large scale construction work is going on, near Haram Sharif in Makkah Mukarramah. This area is traditionally occupied by the Indian Haj Pilgrims. So, there would be about 12,000 Green accommodation units available in Makkah Mukarramah for the Pilgrims of Haj 2018.
HCOI received about 30000 application in which selected Haj pilgrims opted for Green category accommodation, so in the view of the shortage of accommodation units in Green category , the HCOI needs to downgrade nearly 18000 pilgrims from Green to Azizia as per Clause 16.2 (iii) of the Haj guidelines for Haj-2018 and have to conduct Qurrah.
As a consequence, HCOI is giving an opportunity to all the selected pilgrims , who opted for the Green Category accommodation , to send their application for downgradation of their category writing their cover number , name , address , if they so desire , by fax or email on or before 30th June , 2018 ( as per enclose performa in the official notification) .
The applicants may also send their applications for downgradation to their respective State / U.T Haj Committees.
Those who have already paid the amount for Green category , they will be refunded the amount before departure to Saudi Arabia.
NOTE : Those who have already applied earlier for change of category need not apply again .
