FCRA Dept has been going through a turbulent time as it reviews its internal practices. This is resulting in anxious times for a large number of NGOs whose renewal is still pending, not knowing when and if their FCRA will be renewed.
Now the Dept has finally come out stating that 18,523 such NGOs’ one or more annual returns from FY 2010-11 onwards are not available online, and till the same is not uploaded by them, their FCRA will not be renewed. Fact is that till now, submission of online annual returns were required only from FY 2014-15. However good news is that the Dept has allowed one month time 15th May to 14th June 2017 and that too without any Compounding Fee. Please note this waiver is available only if the returns are uploaded during this window of one month only.
Therefore all those cases whose FCRA is still not renewed, please go through the list available on this link http://www.srr-foundation.org/circulars/fc_list_12052017.pdf. Alternatively you can search it on FCRA website. Search by the registration number, and see which year registration numbers need to be uploaded. This can be done in normal course through your user email id.
If you face any difficulties, please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
