Centre has issued show cause notice to 5922 associations for cancellation of FCRA registration. Home Ministry said, in spite of sufficient and adequate notice, these associations have not uploaded their annual returns for three or more than three years within the stipulated time given in the notice.
The Ministry yesterday asked them why their registration may not be cancelled for failure to upload their Annual Returns under the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act. All associations were given the opportunity to file their missing Annual Returns from 15th of May to 14th of last month without payment of penalty and late filing of Annual Returns. These returns pertained to financial year 2010-11 to 2014-15.
