Government seeks NGO/INGO property details

The Ministry of Home Affairs on Thursday issued a circular to solicit the property details of office-bearers of I/NGOs operating in their concerned areas.
The ministry wrote letter to all 77 district administration offices directing them to obtain the property details of the office-bearers of I/NGOs in a sealed envelop. “However, the employees of I/NGOs are not obliged to submit their property details to the DAOs for now,” the circular read.
Earlier on June 7, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Women, Children and Senior Citizens had decided to monitor strictly on I/NGOs as lack of oversight by the government has created anamolies in the sector.
The district administration offices will also have to monitor and regulate the I/NGOs and submit their reports to both the ministries.
The government is also set to serve a deadline for renewal of the I/NGOs that have not renewed their registration for the past three years. Though around 47,000 NGOs and 200 INGOs are registered with the Social Welfare Council (SWC), many of them have not renewed their registration for years.
