Foreign Contribution Regulation Act came into existence in India in 1976 in order to utilize and regulate foreign funds by some organizations or associations. FCRA registration defines the rules and regulations to those organizations which are receiving foreign funds in order to arrange some cultural and socio-economic events. The Central Government is authorizing body which allows the registration of FCRA and after this FCRA department will allow. The following procedures should be followed while filing for FCRA registration:
An organisation having a definite cultural, economic, educational, religious or social programme shall accept foreign contribution, only after such organisation obtains a certificate of registration from the Central Government.
Any person, if it is not registered with the Central Government, can accept foreign contribution only after obtaining the prior permission of the Central Government and such prior permission shall be valid for the specific purpose for which it is obtained and from the specific source.
If the person referred as above has been found guilty of violation of any of the provisions of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 1976, the unutilized or unreceived amount of foreign contribution shall not be utilized or received, as the case may be, without the prior approval of the Central Government.
The Central Government may, by notification in the Official Gazette, specify—
the person or class of persons who shall obtain its prior permission before accepting the foreign contribution; or
the area or areas in which the foreign contribution shall be accepted and utilized with the prior permission of the Central Government; or
the purpose or purposes for which the foreign contribution shall be utilized with the prior permission of the Central Government; or
the source or sources from which the foreign contribution shall be accepted with the prior permission of the Central Government
Any association registered with the Central Government or granted prior permission under that section of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 1976, as it stood immediately before the commencement of this Act, shall be deemed to have been registered or granted prior permission, as the case may be, under this Act and such registration shall be valid for a period of five years from the date on which this section comes into force.
