ISLAMABAD: As a part of government’s campaign to register seminaries across the country, the Ministry for Federal Education and Professional Training has started taking measures to link them with the ministry.

Sources on Tuesday said the ministry had decided to set up 10 directorates across the country for the registration of the madressahs. One directorate as an overseeing authority would be established in the federal capital. A grade 21 officer would be hired as the director general to run the office of the federal directorate of seminaries.

The sources said at least four directors would be appointed for the department of madressahs, including finance, registration and examinations.

Around two registration centres would be established in each province while one each in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Gilgit-Baltistan (GB).
