Greetings from CWS, Hyderabad!
This is with reference to the cancellation of the FCRA registrations of approximately 4200 NGOs across India. I am trying to seek certain clarification from all of you:
- MoHA has not frozen the bank accounts of all the NPOs whose registrations have been cancelled. I am at loss to understand the logic and interpretation behind this move. Does this in any way mean that the existing funds in the account can be used? Or What else could be the reason behind this move?
- Representations have been sent by the aggrieved NPOs and to my knowledge there is a news that MoHA is sending communication to some of these NGOs wherein it is allowing them to use the funds of the ongoing projects. NPOs cannot apply for new projects.
- Should the current action of MoHA be treated as cancellation or suspension of registrations?
I would request your feedback on the same.
Thanks and regards,
B V Soma Sastry
