Spokesman of the commission Uba Mana said early collection and remittance was necessary to facilitate early conclusion of arrangements. He said other hajj components including suitcases and uniform to be used by the pilgrims, were to be determined by the state pilgrims' welfare boards, agencies and commissions in line with existing guidelines.
