Final Opportunity for 4842 NGOs to file Pending Annual Returns with Penalty upto 18 Oct. 2017 (FY 2010-11 to 2014-15)
Govt. has provided yet another final opportunity till 18 Oct. 2017 to about 4842 NGOs (associations/ organizations) whose registration has been cancelled under FCRA, to upload their Annual Returns from FY 2010-11 to 2014-15 with penalty.
Earlier also an opportunity with one month period was allowed from 15 May, 2017 to 14 June, 2017 to 18523 associations to upload their annual returns for FY 2010-11 to 2014-15 without payment of penalty. While 13,681 associations responded either by filing the Annual Returns or replying to the show cause notices, 4842 associations did not respond.
Registration of those 4842 organizations was therefore, cancelled under Section 14 of Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 2010 (FCRA, 2010) for non-filing of annual returns (F.Y. 2010-11 to 2014-15), as they either failed to file any annual returns during the period FY 2010-11 to 2014-15 or filed annual returns for less than 3 years.
