5000 Madrasas to be shut in UttarPradesh

Suresh Jain Rituraj, a member of the UP Minorities Commission has said that around 5000 madrasas in the state will be closed due to non-compliance with standards.

The Yogi Adityanath government had earlier launched a website for madrasas in the state and had mandated that these institutions be registered in the portal.

He also added that the move would benefit the government with an annual income of around Rs 100 crores.
