Lucknow: After a two-month scrutiny by these district level committees, the Uttar Pradesh government on Wednesday stopped funds to 46 madrassas which were not fulfilling standards set by state government.
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.
The grant to 46 madrassas had been stopped along with salaries of teachers, the official said.
