Gujarat Madrasas To Be Surveyed, Focus on Non-Muslim Students

| Updated: May 18, 2024 10:12

Based on a circular from the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR), the Gujarat State Education Department has issued a notification seeking information on various parameters from all madrasas in the state. The commissioner of schools and director of primary education are mandated to conduct the survey for this purpose.

The information sought includes the name of the madrassa’s manager and the name of the institution managing the madrassa. The survey seeks to know about the status of recognition by the government. Other required information in the survey is the number of rooms, building usage (BU), and fire NOC in the Madrassa building.

The survey also includes fields such as study hours in the madrassa, the number of teachers, and their salaries. More importantly, information is sought regarding the source of funds for salaries, details of donations, and student fees.

Through the survey, the Education Department wants to know the number of children aged 6 to 14 studying at madrasas and the details of children who attend other schools regularly.

The survey will cover all the 1130 madrasas listed and unlisted. The decision came in the wake of a complaint lodged with the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR), which alleges that the education provided to children studying in madrassas is limited to religious instruction only.

The focus of the survey is on the non-muslim students attending these madrasas. It also wants to ensure compliance with the Right to Education Act.
