Shortage of accommodation at Makkah

May 10th, 2019

Hyderabad: As per the information received from C.G.I. Jeddah, due to large scale construction work near Haram Sharif in Makkah Mukarramah in the areas which are traditionally occupied by the Indian pilgrims, only about 12,000 NCNTZ accommodation units will be available in Makkah Mukarramah for the pilgrims of Haj-2019. However, around 25,147 selected pilgrims have opted for NCNTZ category accommodation.

In view of the shortage of accommodation units in NCNTZ category, the HCoI needs to shift nearly 13147 pilgrims from NCNTZ to Azizia as per Clause 16.2 (iii) of the guidelines for Haj-2019 and have to conduct qurrah. These shifted Pilgrims to Azizia has to pay accommodation charges of Azizia only. An opportunity was given to all the selected pilgrims (who opted for NCNTZ Category) to send their application for change of accommodation category from NCNTZ to AZIZIA writing their cover number, name, address, if they so desire, by fax or email on or before May 17. (as per enclose Performa). The applicants may also send their application for change of accommodation category to their respective State IV.T. Haj Committees. (NSS)
