New Delhi, Dec 15: A probe has been ordered to ascertain if there was hacking of government software which led to the automatic renewal of licenses of NGOs run by Teesta Setalvad and Greenpeace India.
The Home Ministry had on Wednesday cancelled the renewal of the licenses under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) of three NGOs.
New Delhi, Nov 5: There are 25 NGOs that are under the scanner for alleged anti national activities. The renewals of 11,000 NGOs under the FCRA were cancelled as they had not applied for a renewal.
New Delhi, June 16: The home ministry has cancelled the licence of Teesta Setalvad’s NGO, Sabrang Trust. With this order the NGO will not be entitled to receive foreign donations.
Today when the matter came up for further hearing, the Supreme Court ordered that the stay on the arrest would continue until October 15th. Teesta’s arrest stayed till Oct by SC
This will block the foreign funding to the NGO. The Home Ministry has also served a notice to the NGO for cancellation of its FCRA licence.
This would mean that the CJP will need to seek the permission of the government before it can receive any funds. The Government has however decided to cancel the registration of another NGO, the Sabrang Trust.
The decision to cancel the registration has been taken under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act of 2010.
