Over the last five years, the Narendra Modi led government has deregistered over 14,800 NGOs registered under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA), which were receiving funds from abroad, reports Times of India.

According to the reports, Union Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai responding to a written question in the Lok Sabha said the registrations were cancelled because the NGOs committed violations of the provisions of the FCRA.

As per Rai’s answer in the Lok Sabha, the foreign contributions to NGOs has increased in 2017-18 as compared to 2016-17.

The NDA government has been committed to the cracking down on foreign funding to NGOs that violate FCRA norms. Last year, MoS Home Kiren Rijiju had informed in the Rajya Sabha that the government had cancelled the FCRA registration of over 13,000 NGOs for FCRA violations.
