The Haj Committee of India has extended the deadline for Haj application submissions to March 20th. Eligible applicants must possess a machine-readable Indian International Passport issued on or before March 20th and valid up to February 3rd, 2024.

The application can be filled out online through the Haj Committee of India’s website or mobile app. This extension provides more time for interested Muslims to complete their applications and ensures a fair chance for those who want to go on the Haj pilgrimage.

In a separate report, a Saudi committee in charge of housing Hajj pilgrims in Mecca has also extended the deadline until the end of the Islamic month of Shaaban next week for issuing permits for houses to accommodate the faithful.

The committee has called on landlords interested in renting out their houses for this purpose to comply with all safety requirements and come forward to get permits as soon as possible. The Hajj pilgrimage, one of Islam’s five obligatory duties, is set to start in late June this year in holy sites in Saudi Arabia.

The Haj application must be filled out online on the website of the Haj Committee of India, https://hajcommittee.gov.in, or through the “HCOI” mobile app available on Google Play Store.
