FCRA prohibits acceptance of foreign contributions for any activities detrimental to national interest, including those that affect the sovereignty and integrity of India.
Non-compliance with FCRA can lead to severe penalties, including hefty fines, imprisonment, and cancellation of registration permitting foreign contributions.
An organization can apply for FCRA registration via the official website of the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India. They will need to fill out the form and provide the necessary documents.
No. As per FCRA, foreign contributions should be used solely for the purpose for which they were received. Any misuse can lead to severe legal consequences.
