Saudi Arabia Increases India’s Hajj Quota to 200,000

The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has officially confirmed an increase of India’s Hajj quota by 25,000, the third hike in three years, taking the number of pilgrims from the country who can perform the Hajj to two hundred thousand (200,000).

The increase in India’s Haj quota from 175,000 to 200,000 is a big relief for the Haj pilgrims, said the Haj Committee of India and the Private Tour Operators.

Crwon Prince Mohammed bin Salman, during his visit to India last February, had announced at a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi that India’s Hajj quota would be increased by 25,000.

Out of the total hike in quotas, 140,000 will travel through the Hajj committee and the remaining 60,000 will use private tour operators.
