“To set up a committee or tribunal is a purely policy decision. The legislature alone has the power to set up a tribunal or committee, under the requisite statute, to adjudicate disputes arising from it...

#SupremeCourt to hear plea challenging @HMOIndia notification dated May 18, 2021, which extended the date for compliance of specific provisions of the FCRA. NGOs have also challenged the constitutional validity of the 2020 amendment #FCRA
SG Tushar Mehta: This 1976 legislation was amended in 1985... earlier if govt of China is contributing in some NGO in India was regulated
SG: but it appears from the statement that experience showed that other countries NGOs were also infusing funds in India and thus definition was widened to include all such donations

#SupremeCourt is hearing a challenge to the amendments to the FCRA and the rule mandating opening of an NGO's primary account in New Delhi SBI main branch
Right to life and liberty under Article 21 does not encompass the right to receive unregulated foreign contributions, the Central government had told the Supreme Court while defending amendments made in 2020 to the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA)
The plea by Noel Harper of NGO Care And Share Charitable Trust challenged Sections 7, 12A, 12(1A) and 17 inserted in the FCRA by the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Amendment Act, 2020 as ultra vires Articles 14, 19 and 21 of the Constitution of India #SupremeCourt

On 14 Sept. 2021, @the_hindu reported that the government has restricted funding for 10 international NGOs working on issues related to the environment, climate change (specifically their ‘advocacy against coal’) and child rights.…
This has been done by placing these NGOs on the Prior Reference Category (PRC) which implies that when a foreign donor would want to transfer money to a recipient association in India (which is in the PRC), they would require the prior clearance of the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Our editor Shravani had written a post explaining how the #FCRA, amended in Sept. 2020, resulted in over-regulation of civil society organisations, having a chilling effect on effective public participation of CSOs in opposing government policies…

#Amnestyinternational has had a rather dubious role in #India. It's funding & activities have been repeatedly questioned by both UPA & NDA governments. Former PM Manmohan Singh had red flagged the NGO during #KudanKulam nuke plant issue. In fact in Feb 2014 UPA froze it's funding
In 2009 #Amnestyinternational had #FCRA issues. Even under NDA rule Amnesty funding remained rather opaque. @dir_ed probed dubious fund flow pattern. RBI put Amnesty in prior permission category due to suspect funds flow, acc to the #Govt. Even during UPA funding was suspect: BJP
MHA had #Amnestyinternational funding looked into & concluded that Human Rights cannot be an excuse for defying the law of the land.MHA said in order to circumvent the FCRA regulations Amnesty UK remitted large amounts of money to 4 entities registered in India classifying it FDI

#SupremeCourt to hear a petition seeking to declare Section 17 of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 2010 as unconstitutional as it requires that the primary FCRA account is to be opened exclusively in a branch of SBI New Delhi notified by Centre
@TheOfficialSBI #FCRA
The plea says impugned Section 17 of FCRA, MHA Notification, as well as the public notices, violate Article 14 for bring arbitrary and unreasonable.
The writ petition states that a blanket requirement of
opening a bank account at one specific branch of the SBI, New Delhi for all organizations receiving FCRA is absurd, irrational, and serves no rational purpose under the FCRA or any other law.

1. Last week I was invited to address a NGO platform in a European country to speak and challenge them on #localisation agenda.

#localisation is a term referred to strengthen local NGOs who are often first responders to disasters.
2. The term became a buzzword after the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016, when it was realised that less than 0.3% funding was reaching to local/national actors. Hence a commitment was made to pass on at least 25% to them by 2020. #localisation
3. Anyways, while addressing them I asked, I am seeing 15 organisations part of this NGO platform. What if I was addressing platform of any other European country, or North America, or Japan. Would I see different NGOs there or same?
