FCRA licence validity extended till Mar 2023

Centre has extended the validity of FCRA registration of NGOs, the renewal applications of which are pending, till March 31, 2023.
In an office memorandum, Home Ministry also said the validity of those FCRA entities whose 5 years validity period is expiring during Oct 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023, and which have applied for renewal before expiry of 5 years validity period, will stand extended up to March 31, 2023 or till the date of disposal of renewal application, whichever is earlier. The memo also said that the Centre has decided to extend the validity of FCRA registration certificates of certain categories of FCRA registered entities that include such entities whose validity was extended till Sept 30, 2022 and whose renewal application is pending will stand extended till March 31, 2023 or till the date of disposal of renewal application, whichever is earlier. All FCRA registered associations are therefore advised to take note that in case of refusal of the application for renewal of certificate of registration, the validity of the certificate shall be deemed to have expired on the date of refusal of the application of renewal, MHA said.
