Centre places its draft Guidelines before SC providing stringent regulatory mechanism for NGOs


Nearly 30 lakh NGOs are operating in India.

Centre has filed in Supreme Court  its draft guidelines providing for stringent regulatory mechanism for the NGOs.

SC had asked Centre to prepare guidelines to regulate the NGOs and the Voluntary Organisations after finding that nearly 30 lakh of them were operating in India.

Centre has proposed stringent guidelines for the NGOs and VOs requiring all of the existing ones to register afresh online with Niti Ayog’s NGO-Darpan.

Guidelines submitted by Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to Apex Court Bench headed by CJI J S Khehar required them to register afresh if they wish to get the Govt grants.

NGOs will be provided with unique ID and subjected to Income Tax Act and Foreign Contribution Regulations Act.

Centre’s Draft Guidelines state that NGOs/VOs past track record and the performance will be put under scrutiny before grant of the accreditation.

NGOs and VOs getting Govt funds are required to execute a bond to refund amount with 10% interest if work not done.

Misappropriation of the funds would warrant registration of  a criminal case against the NGOs/VOs and their key officials.

SC  has asked Amicus Curiae Rakesh Dwivedi to submit his suggestions on draft guidelines in two weeks.
