ORGANISATIONS WHOSE FCRA LICENCES WERE CANCELLED INCLUDE PANJAB UNIVERSITY, CHANDIGARH
OTHER PROMINENT

NEW DELHI: In another round of action against NGOs, the government has cancelled the licence of 4,470 such entities that surprisingly included a number of top universities, the Supreme Court Bar Association and Escorts Heart Institute.

The crackdown now bars them from receiving foreign funds.

The decision to cancel the registration of these entities under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) has been taken by the Union home ministry after examination of the activities of the NGOs that allegedly include non-filing of annual returns and other anomalies.

All associations were given proper notice by the foreigners division of the home ministry with adequate time to reply before their FCRA licences were cancelled, official sources said.

Other prominent organisations whose FCRA licences were cancelled include Panjab University, Chandigarh; Gujarat National Law University; Gargi College, Delhi; Lady Irwin College, Delhi; Vikram Sarabhai Foundation and Kabir floated by Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia.

In the last round of crackdown, licences of nearly 9,000 NGOs were cancelled in April last for alleged violation of FCRA.

The fresh round of cancellation process started on May 6 and the highest number of such voluntary organisations as many as 971 were de-registered on Tuesday.
