Newly-launched portal to help Madarsa Board conduct exams
LUCKNOW: The state government is all set to conduct Madarsa Board examination with the help of newly launched portal of the UP Board of Madarsa Education.
All information related with the examination and details concerning curriculum would be uploaded at the website, madarsaboard.upsdc.gov.in, said Monika S Garg, principal secretary, minority welfare and waqf board, on Saturday.
The state government had launched the portal on August 18 this year and instructed the madarsas to upload pictures of classrooms, total area, number of teachers, their Aadhaar numbers, account details of the madarsas etc on the board’s website by September 15.
The exercise was aimed at bringing in transparency in the working of Islamic schools.
Now, madarsas could forward applications concerning issuing of recognition certificate through the portal. They could also avail benefits of all welfare schemes by making formal application on this interactive portal.
Uttar Pradesh has around 560 aided minority educational institutions that offer studies in Islamic theology and religious laws. On an average, every aided madarsa has around 17 teachers. The government gives an aid of Rs 4 to 5 lakh monthly to each of the institution.
