Admin expenses, dependency on local transfer and word clouds: An analysis of Foreign Funding to Indian NGOs with graphs and charts

The charts demonstrate that a significant portion of NGOs will be affected by the FCRA Amendment passed recently by the Indian Parliament.

In this short article, we will provide a series of data points that will help break down the nature of foreign funded non-profits in India. This is intended to serve as a reference for all discussions on the subject.

Basic Facts

  1. A total of 21918 entities filed FC4 returns for the financial year 2018-2019
  2. 10336 reported having received no funds from abroad at all
  3. 16557 reported having received no funds from other FCRA NGOs within India.
  4. 5361 NGOs received some funds from other FCRA NGOs within India.
  5. 5033 relied on transfers from other FCRA NGOs within India for more than 30% of their foreign fund inflow.
  6. 3341 reported having spent more than 20% of their total inflow on administrative expenses.

NGO distribution by size

We have categorized NGOs in these four categories

  1. 634 Mega NGOs – Total foreign income (including interest income and intra-India transfers) above 10 crore
  2. 599 Medium NGOs – Total foreign income of 1 to 10 crores
  3. 11168 Small NGOs – Total foreign income of 5 lakhs to 1 crore

FDs and Cash in the hands of NGOs

Conclusion

The above mentioned charts demonstrate that a significant portion of NGOs will be affected by the FCRA Amendment passed recently by the Indian Parliament. Two provisions that will have the greatest impact are the amendment that restricts administrative expenses to 20% of fund inflow and another that requires all NGOs to utilise the funds themselves and not transfer them to other NGOs.
