What are Foreign Donations?

Any donation or transfer that comes from a foreign source and has not been given as a gift or for some personal use is considered to be a foreign donation. This contribution can be in the form of monetary help or in the form of goods. Also, the entity or NGO receiving the donation can use the contribution for any kind of social, educational, religious, economic, or cultural purpose.

The contributions or donations made by non-resident Indians (NRIs) are not considered to be foreign contributions. However, donations made by residents of other countries or a person who is of Indian origin but is of foreign nationality are considered to be foreign contributions.

What is the FCRA?

The FCRA (Foreign Contribution Regulation Act) is a consolidated act put in place to regulate foreign contributions and to make sure that no contribution from foreign sources is utilised inappropriately or in a way that may have an adverse effect on national security. The FCRA is applicable for NGOs, associations, and groups in India that accept any kind of foreign contribution for social, educational, religious, economic, and cultural purposes.

Enacted in 1976 for the very first time, the FCRA was recently amended in 2010, when some new measures were added for the regulation of foreign contributions and donations. For NGOs, FCRA registration is mandatory, and initially, it is valid for five years. However, the NGO can get its FCRA registration renewed after the registration period if it continues to comply with all the norms listed under the act.

Criteria for Obtaining FCRA Registration for an NGO To register under the FCRA, an NGO must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • It should be a duly registered organisation for charitable purposes.
  • They must agree to receive foreign donations through specific types of bank accounts only.
  • They should be registered under the NGO Darpan Registration.
  • It should have been active for at least the last 3 years.
