    Ngo's Working


    Dear All,
    What is the nodal authority responsible for the grant of aid to the NGOs? What is the classification ? They are operating in different fields such as education, governance, health? How do we collect the information about their working whether they are really serving the society or not! Why the regulating authority has not been set up till now?
    I would like to receive the valuable inputs from the RTI community.Thanks
    urmila sharma

    By the very name NGO are non governmental and any person with a socail cause in the heart can start a NGO. They seek grants from the Govt. Body as well as from the Private companies and Individuals.
    I understand Ministry of social justice release some grants to NGOs
    Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment : Grants in-aids to NGOs

    It does not mean that other ministry cannot release the grants. All these grants from the allocated funds to the respective ministry. In order to track the grants of NGO either a regulating authority is required or you need to get information from their annual reports.

    Ministry of corporate affairs have made a mandatory provision for all companies to spend 2% of their NET PROFIT to be spent on Corporate Social Responsibility. These companies choose NGOs to spend that 2 % on CSR..This is a major source of income to the NGOs..

    If there is substantial financial aid , directly or indirectly , from Govt [including its various departments] , it can be got declared Public Authority [ s.2(h) of RTI Act ] by filing , first an RTI Application for information to NGO and then approaching relevant Information Commission either u/s 18 or 19 if the information is denied by NGO .
