Move under way to restructure Tawafa services
"The Ministry of Haj submitted an integrated project for the restructuring of the Tawafa Establishments to the Council of Minister last week. The project is to identify the relevant characteristics of the establishments besides defining their executive tasks. Dr. Bandar Bin Muhammad Hajjar, Minister of Haj, revealed this while addressing a "Joint Responsibility Dialogue" hosted by Okaz, the sister publication of Saudi Gazette, at the newspaper group's headquarters in Jeddah on Sunday night. Hajjar said the ministry is reviewing the practice of passing down ownership of the Tawafa establishments as inheritance with the aim of breaking the monopoly of certain families who have inherited the business from their forefathers. This will enable the ministry to task qualified people from outside these families to run pilgrimage services."
