FCRA nod for Missionaries of Charity restored

Tags: National News

The Ministry of Home Affairs(MHA) on Friday restored the FCRA registration of missionaries of Charity (MoC),the Catholic religious congregation set up by Nobel laureate Mother Teresa.

  1. The Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) registration is mandatory to receive foreign donations.
  2. The registration of nearly 6,000 NGOs ceased to operate from January 1 as the MHA refused to renew their application or the NGOs did not apply for renewal.
  3. After this decision by MHA came out, there was a debate in the U.K Parliament, seeking to know if the British government had raised with India the issue of blocking of overseas funds of the MoC or not.
