CID launches FCRA inquiries into 38 NGOs in Ranchi

Ranchi, Aug 10 (PTI) The CID of the Jharkhand Police

today launched simultaneous inquires at 38 NGOs in and around

Ranchi in connection with their receiving funds through the

Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA), a senior

official said.

Separate inquiries are also on for Non-government

Organisations (NGOs) outside the state capital, Additional

Director General of Police (CID) Ajay Kumar Singh said.

"Inquiries are going on relating to FCRA on NGOs,"

Additional Director General of Police (CID) Ajay Kumar Singh

told PTI.

CID sources said the probe teams would check various

documents of the NGOs such as bank account details of past

five years, email communications regarding funds from foreign

countries, donors list and cash book.

Reports of purchase committees, various travel and

field reports would also be examined, the sources said.

The central government informed the Lok Sabha on March

20 that it has barred nearly 5,000 NGOs across the country

from receiving foreign funding after cancellation of their

FCRA licences for violating rules since April 2017.
