The receipts of Waqf fund are short of its expenditure. The difference is managed by temporary diversion of funds from Institution’s head.

“Institution Fund”: There is a fund of Institutions, which are independent, but under direct control of the Board. The income generated by institutions are to be spend for these institutions only except 10% supervision charges and 7% Waqf fund that can be received by the Board . Board has no right over this fund except above charges as per law. But Board was compelled to divert funds to the tune of Rs. 2.69 corer in last 10 years as a loan to Waqf fund, which is a liability of Waqf fund. The local fund audit has continuously objected to this diversion and asked to pay back the funds but it could not be done due to low receipts of Board and non-receipt of grants from Government. Receipts and expenditure of Institution fund is as under for last three years.
