There is a debate going on within the Government circles that India should intimate British Govt. that India no longer needed the aid. In a internal memo sent by Ministry of External Affairs to Ministry of Finance, exactly such position has been articulated. In a news item on BBC website, the story indicates that DFID is in close negotiation with the Indian Govt. on discussing future scenario of its aid programme in India.
The above story if true, further strengthens the position that SRRF has been taking that all NGOs India now need to work towards enhancing their financial position, through donations, sponsorship, etc. Many of the faculty persons as well as participants also held this view in a recent Training held by SRRF on ‘Setting-up / Strengthening Sponsorship Unit for mobilizing Resources’
