Now, NGOs can register for foreign funds online

Filing of application forms for FCRA registration, uploading documents such as annual returns can all be completed online.

THE ENTIRE registration process under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, 2010 for NGOs to receive foreign funding was placed online by the government on Monday, even as Home Minister Rajnath Singh launched the revamped website of the ministry’s foreigners division.

All procedures to be followed under the FCRA, 2010 have been placed online in a bid to reduce human interaction. Meanwhile, amended rules — Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Rules, 2015 — are also being notified.

Filing of application forms for FCRA registration, uploading documents such as annual returns can all be completed online. Queries by applicants and replies from the ministry can be sent via email. Applicants will even be issued digitally signed registration certificates, and prior permission sanctions for receiving foreign funds through emails.
