5,922 NGOs which failed to file annual returns for five consecutive years could lose FCRA licence

Indira Gandhi National Centre for Arts, IGNOU, Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur and Mayo College Central Council Society are among the nearly 6,000 NGOs and associations that could lose their license to receive foreign funding for failing to file annual returns for five consecutive years.

 The home ministry’s Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) division has issued show-cause notices to 5,922 NGOs asking them why their registration under FCRA should not be canceled for not filing of mandatory annual income and expenditure records from 2010-11 to 2014-15, despite repeated notices.

Among the other prominent associations in the list are Ramakrishna Mission Ashram, Delhi College of Engineering, Punjabi University (Patiala), Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board, Khadi Gramodyog Samiti and Oxfam Trust.

These associations were earlier told to submit their annual returns for five years — 2010-11 to 2014-15.
