The latest Notice from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) may sound the final death knell for 5,922 NGOs across India that have failed to file their missing FCRA annual returns online in Form FC4 for the Financial Years 2010-11 to 2014-15 despite several reminders and opportunities given to them from time to time on the MHA’s website.
MHA has now issued a notice asking these 5,922 NGOs to show cause as to why their FCRA Registration should not be cancelled. Copy of this Notice can be read at: https://fcraonline.nic.in/home/PDF_Doc/Show_Cause_08072017.pdf

We request all those who follow our Blog to go through this list and check if any NGO known to them is in this list. If so, please request them to immediately file the missing annual returns along with an email to MHA explaining why the return was missing (E.g.: the NGO may have posted a hard copy instead of filing the same online). The email should be sent at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
If these 5,922 NGOs fail to update the missing returns by 22nd July 2017, MHA will cancel their registration under FCRA 2010.
