We have decided to discontinue offline application process in which applicants could fill up forms and physically deliver it. The last date for applying for Haj pilgrimage 2010 is November 10 ,” said a Rajasthan Haj Committee official.
There has been a decline in the number of Haj applicants over the past couple of years. In 2017, the committee had received nearly 16,500 applications in 2017.
