The Missionaries of Charity, a Catholic religious order and philanthropic organization founded by. Mother Teresa, have been. Forbidden from receiving foreign. Donations by the. Indian government, according to the Home Ministry.
Subsequently, India has halted foreign donations: The charity’s headquarters are in. Kolkata, and it works with some of the country’s poorest and disadvantaged individuals. It was. Founded by the. Nobel Peace Prize recipient in 1950.
Meanwhile, The ministry said in a statement Monday that the group’s application to renew its license to continue receiving foreign donations under the. Foreign Contribution. Regulation. Act “was. Declined on. December 25, 2021 for not achieving the eligibility standards.” “Missionaries of. Charity (MoC) has not submitted a request / revision application for reconsideration of this refusal of renewal.”
However, The Christian charity acknowledged in a statement that its. FCRA renewal application was denied, and that it has instructed its centers not to run international contribution accounts until the issue is handled.
The statement from the ministry did not specify which rules the organisation had broken.
In addition, This isn’t the first time a charitable organization or a human rights organization has lost its ability to receive funds from international donors. Since coming to power in 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s government has targeted hundreds of non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Amnesty International’s India operations were shut down last year after the government was accused of “constant harassment,” including the freezing of its bank accounts.
Therefore, The Ministry of. Home Affairs, on the other hand, stated in a statement that “MoC’s accounts were not frozen by MHA. The State Bank of India has confirmed that the. MoC has requested that its accounts be frozen.”
