    Foreign Funding for NGO in India

    The role of an NGO is significant while talking about the economical and physical progression of the weaker sections of the society. NGO’s are partially or entirely dependent on donations from both foreign and domestic sources. The struggle of an NGO to stay afloat in times of scare fund is not unknown. In such times, receiving foreign equity inflows in the NGO sector can directly result in social and economical development of the country. Individuals, campaigners and activist groups belonging to non-profit sector obtain investments from charity, foreign funding, government-funded campaigns, donations and now an important part of corporate, the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). Foreign direct investment in the non-government sector is highly regulated. The Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) is the regulatory body that monitors foreign funding for NGO’s in India. Nearly, 30,000 Indian NGO’s are registered with the FCRA in order to get foreign funding. While FDI policies have been regularly eased to encourage more foreign funding in India, FDI in the non- government sector working for the marginalized and vulnerable has been known to be under strict regulation by the government.  In 2017, around 6000 NGO’s feared cancellation of their FCRA license. Widely known NGO’s like the Amnesty International and People’s Watch have all come under the scrutiny of the FCRA norms. IS YOUR NGO ELIGIBLE FOR THE GRANT OF REGISTRATION? According to the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, all NGO’s need to meet certain criteria’s in order to be eligible to receive foreign funding. It is imperative for the NGO to be registered under the Companies Act (1956-2013), Societies Registration Act (1860), etc.The NGO must have been in active operation for three years.The NGO should not have an existing parent company that is already registered under the FCRA.  The NGO must not have a foreigner on the board. Apart from these, the NGO is also required to submit proof of activities undertaken in the period of its active years in its chosen field. Excluding the administrative expenditure, the organization also must have spent at least rs. 10,00,000 over the last three years.

    Singapore Replaces Mauritius As India's Top Source Of FDI

    Singapore overtook Mauritius and became India’s largest source of foreign direct investment as its equity inflows crossed 41 per cent during the end of 2018 to nearly $13 billion. In 2018-19, investments seen from Singapore were estimated at $16.2 billion, compared to $8.1 billion from Mauritius, a significantly lower amount. However, for the first time in 6 years, the country saw a drop in foreign funds in major sectors like telecommunication, pharmaceuticals, and power. According to data released by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), FDI equity inflows declined by 1% and currently stand at 44.4 billion. The sectors that witnessed a growth in foreign investments are services, computer software and hardware, trading, and automobile. Further, according to the recent data by DPIIT, it was found that the National Capital has replaced Maharashtra as the top destination to receive foreign direct investment equity inflows. After 33 year of no change in policies, India had modified its tax pact with Mauritius in May 2016, allowing authorities in the country to tax capital gains on transfer of the acquired Indian shares. In December 2018, a similar modification was made in the tax treaty with Singapore. According to Akash Gupt, partner and leader for regulatory practice at PwC, the presence of a large number of private equity investors in Singapore helped boost inflows into India. “Now that there is tax neutrality, people are opting for Singapore as it is more accessible and approachable and offers tax incentives through lower tax rates if you locate your regional headquarters there,” added EY India’s Rajiv Chugh.

    The Re-Elected Government Plans To Increase Foreign Investment In India

    Recently re-elected for the next term, the Modi government plans to increase foreign direct investment inflows into the country. For this, the Ministry of Industry has started preparing proposals that will result in an increased inflow facilitating economic development. The Ministry plans to offer tax concession to potential foreign investors (includes firms, companies and individuals). These concessions can be given in the tax form. After economic liberalization began in 1991, the government of India regularly eased foreign direct investment policies. Previously, the government had increased the limit of FDI in various sectors in order to encourage more foreign investments. However, this step wasn’t enough as the country did not witness a heavy inflow of investments from foreign companies and individuals. Now, the Ministry of Industry has formulated a new proposal that is important to the overall economic development of the country. As per the new proposal, special incentives like tax concessions will be offered to all foreign investors. This will allow major sectors and activities to grow and develop. The three major sectors or industries identifies for this are: electronics, food processing, and the chemical sector. This proposal has been drafted on the lines of foreign investment policies in Vietnam. Vietnam offers three types of tax concessions or exemptions: Corporate tax at concessional rates to foreign investors Foreign investors will be exempted from income tax for 4 years Even after 4 years, the provision of 50% tax deduction should be made The government of India is preparing a plan on similar lines and claims that this step will result in a consequent annual investment of $100 billion. If this proposal is successfully passed it can result in significant growth and development of various sectors and activities and, therefore, an overall economic development.  The Ministry of Industry has sent this proposal to the Prime minister’s office and will be worked on under the 100-day agenda once the new government takes the oath. This government is said to prioritize on foreign direct investment policies. For More Details : https://bit.ly/2YUyoPS
