FCRA Dept is in the process of sending notices to as many as 10,000 organisations all over India who have not filed their annual returns during any financial year during FY 2009-10, 2010-11 & 2011-12. It is asking organisations who have filed returns for these years to write to the Dept with evidences that returns have been filed.
Good thing is that learning from its past experience the Dept has not enmass cancelled all these registrations, but is in the process of sending individual notices.
It is sending notices to organisations individually. But the catch is that it is sending the notice at the address last available with it. It is possible that addresses at Dept. may not have correct addresses or even end up sending it to wrong addresses, however Dept is likely to assume that the organisation does not exist and may go ahead with cancelling the registration.
Hence we suggest that all NGOs please check, in case name of your organisation exists on this list and if so, please immediately write to the Dept. with all evidences that you may have regarding filing of your returns for the three years mentioned above.
