Over 14,800 foreign-funded NGOs deregistered in last 5 yrs

The government in the last five years has deregistered over 14,800 NGOs which were registered under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) and had been receiving funds from abroad, the Lok Sabha was told Tuesday. 

Replying to a written question, Union minister of state for home Nityanand Rai said the registrations were cancelled because the NGOs committed violations of the provisions of the FCRA.
