These include accommodation, period of stay of pilgrims, transportation, health and other facilities both in India and Saudi Arabia,” minority affairs minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said after Thursday’s meeting.

The last date for application was December 10. But it has been extended in the view of the Covid-19 situation. Haj 2021 will begin on July 17 and end on July 22.

In 2021, the expected expenditure of Haj is likely to go up. While in 2019, the expenditure ranged between 2,36,000 and 3,22,000, the expenditure in 2021 can range between 3,70,000 and 5,25,000.

In 2020, Saudi cancelled Haj for international pilgrims because of Covid-19 pandemic.
