Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act: Nearly 6000 NGOs lose their license

  • The year 2022 began with bad news for roughly 6,000 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) across the country: their Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA) registrations had expired. This meant that foreign monies, which are needed for day-to-day labour and humanitarian endeavours, had been cut or locked away.

  • According to news agency PTI, 22,762 NGOs were registered under the FCRA before Saturday, January 1st. According to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) website, the number has dropped dramatically to 16,829.

  • Jamia Milia Islamia, Oxfam India, and even the Indian Medical Association are among the organisations whose FCRA registration has expired (IMA). This announcement came just days after the MHA refused to renew Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity's FCRA licence.
