    You can directly address your application to The PIO of the relevant NGO.
    Just make sure that the NGO is receiving funds from the Government and can be defined as a "Public Authority".

    Hello Praveen,

    It's a good thing that you have decided to use RTI on misuse of foreign funding. Hope you will be able to unearth hidden skeletons.

    Instead of writing to individual NGOs you first apply to the Ministry of Home Affairs for a list of NGOs who have received Foreign Funds in the previous years.

    That will be your starting point.
    From there you will also able to collect a lot of other details about the NGOs.
    You will get massive amount of data. If you are in New Delhi then ask for personal inspection of files.

    Mr. S.K. Shahi, Dy. Secy. is dealing with FCRA. The complete list is available here.

    Also visit Ministry of Home Affairs (RTI).

    Use this link to get a list of all the NGOs who are registered under the FCRA.

    Please remember that most of the NGOs are not covered under the RTI Act, if they are not recipient of any GOVT. Funds.

    Mere registration under any Act, does not automatically brings an NGO under the RTI Ambit. And Foreign Funding is not Govt. Funds.

    So you will meet a lot of resistance there.

    You have a long & ardous journey ahead. So you have to persevere a lot.

    Good Luck and Keep Posting.
