What is a coverage number?
The cover number is a unique computer generated number obtained from IHPMS software by the Hajj Committee of India after verifying the data entry and relevant documents of pilgrims by the Hajj Committees of the State / of UT. State / UT Hajj committees tell the cover number to the cover manager. Applicants should use this cover number as a reference in all future correspondence. Pilgrims must obtain a cover number from the state / UT Hajj committees, as no Hajj requests will be considered for the Qurrah (lottery) without a cover number.
Coverage refers to applicants applying together as a group, and only family members or significant others should be kept in one cover. The person responsible for coverage must be an adult male only and is responsible for the payments of all applicants included in the coverage.
The accommodation category of all applicants applied in a blanket must be the same. All pilgrims in a blanket must travel together. Under no circumstances will coverage be split, except for matters related to the provision of accommodation in Saudi Arabia due to the unavailability of the unit or the space required.
What is the Qurrah (Lottery)?
Qurrah refers to the computerized lottery. In States / Union Territories where Haj requests received exceed their quota, pilgrims will be selected provisionally by the Qurrah conducted on the covers. The Qurrah is to be completed by the respective State Hajj Committees / UT on the IHPMS software, which is maintained on the India Hajj Committee server. Immediately after the Qurrah, the State / UT Hajj committees will inform the provisionally selected pilgrims of their selection status. All selected pilgrims will also be informed by SMS on their registered mobile number. Pilgrims can also check their status on the Haj committee website.
