The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) after publishing (on 12th May 2017) a list of 18,523 NGOs whose annual returns are allegedly not on the FCRA department’s records, has now published (on 7th June 2017) names of 2,025 NGOs who the department feels need to update their FCRA Bank details.

The names of the 2,025 NGOs have been listed alphabetically and the list can be viewed at:
MHA has given these NGOs 15 days’s time to update the details. Details regarding FCRA Designated and FCRA Utilization accounts should be filled up online through Form FC6.
Even if your NGO is not listed among these unfortunate 2,025, it would be good to check online if your FCRA Bank details on MHA’s online portal are accurate. One way to do this is by going to https://fcraonline.nic.in and clicking on the tab “Intimation – Annual Returns (FC 4)” and after entering your user id, password and Access Code verify if details regarding your FCRA Designated and FCRA Utilization accounts are accurate and if not go to Form FC6 and update the Account Number, Bank Name, Branch Name & Address and the IFSC code of your Bank. In case your NGO has FCRA Utilization Accounts, this is the time to update that information too.
We also take this opportunity to remind those among the 18,523 NGOs listed by MHA to upload their missing FCRA returns (for FY 2010-11 to FY 2014-15) online before 14thJune 2017.
Hurry! Barely a few days remain!!
