Non-governmental organisations


Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in India have received nearly Rs 12,500 crore from foreign contributors in 2013 but according to a home ministry report, only two per cent of the country’s estimated 20 lakh NGOs report their donations from abroad, and that most of the money is used for purposes not specified by the NGOs.

There is an absence of a centralised database on the number of NGO in the country and the quantum of finance involved in their operation- let alone the purpose.
Isn’t it high time they’re brought under RTI and held accountable for their funds and activities ?
