Topics have included selection of pilgrims and the appointment of seasonal staff.

The Haj Committee stresses that any official circular will be available only on the official website,, and that it is not responsible for loss or damages that result from interacting with such messages.

It only has one account with the State Bank of India and another with the Union Bank of India, as reported in an official circular (PDF).
