Law governing Foreign Contributions to India


The Ministry of Home Affairs in India oversees the flow and use of foreign contributions. Every NGO is required to obtain registration under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) before receiving foreign contributions. NGOs are also required file annual returns to the same authority. Please visit http://mha.nic.in/fcra.htm to get all details and lists of registered organizations. The FAQ guide on the site is a useful document.
