THE crackdown on foreign funded non- government organisations ( NGOs) by the NDA government is expected to get a push with the Prime Minister?s Office ( PMO) pressing for a stronger mechanism to monitor money flow into these set- ups.
The PMO has asked the Ministry of Home Affairs ( MHA) to put in place a system that will put foreign- funded NGOs under scrutiny. Nripendra Misra, Principal Secretary to Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote to Home Secretary L. C. Goyal urging for the need to have a system put in place without any delay for monitoring foreign funding of NGOs.
The communication sent by PMO says that there is a " need for effective linkage between MHA, Reserve Bank of India and banks for effective monitoring?. " Sometime back it was decided that the system would be operational without any delay, "PMO letter said.
It further says that the system should be put in place by June 15, 2015.
MHA has already cracked the whip on several foreign- funded NGOs, including Greenpeace, a high- profile international environment activist group. Last month MHA suspended foreign funding of Greenpeace and also served a notice asking why its registration should not be cancelled permanently, alleging that the group was working against India?s economic interests and allegedly violating Foreign Contribution Regulation Act UNDER SCANNER
( FCRA) ? the legislation that controls foreign funding of NGOs. This was followed up with US- based Ford Foundation, one of the biggest nonprofit organisations across the world, being put on a watch list by MHA. The government has already cancelled FCRA licences of 10, 117 NGOs till now that prohibits them from getting foreign funds.
More action is likely after Misra?s communication to the Home Secretary on May 26, asking for a strong mechanism to keep a vigil on foreign- funded NGOs.
Several NGOs receiving foreign funds have been on the radar of the Narendra Modi government for alleged unscrupulous activities after intelligence agencies alerted the Home Ministry about these organisations which were allegedly compromising the country?s economic stability.
Inputs also indicate that some NGOs getting foreign funds are involved in money laundering.
Home Ministry in its report on FCRA last year also red- flagged the issue of terror funding
donors.
Taking forward its strategy of cracking down on NGOs receiving foreign funds and suspected to be involved in unscrupulous activities, the Centre has also blacklisted some foreign donors suspected to be running a money laundering syndicate.
