Temporary breather to Teesta Setalvad’s NGOs

Temporary breather to Teesta Setalvad’s NGOs
<g data-gr-id="22">Government</g> has given a temporary relief to social activist Teesta Setalvad's two NGOs, which allegedly violated Foreign Currency Regulation Act, by allowing them more time to reply to its <g data-gr-id="16">showcause</g> notices.

Sabarang Trust and Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP), run by Teesta and her husband Javed Anand, were served the notices nearly a month ago following an on-site inspection of their records and books of accounts carried out by Home Ministry officials in April this year.

"Even after almost a month, no reply has come from the two NGOs. We have extended the deadline by a fortnight and asked them to reply by mid-July to our <g data-gr-id="14">showcause</g> notices. If the NGOs do not reply even then, we will have no option but to cancel their FCRA registration," a Home Ministry official said.

During the probe under Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA), Home Ministry officials found that Teesta and her husband were running a magazine "Communalism Combat" as co-editors as well as printer and publisher of their company Sabrang Communication and Publishing Pvt Ltd (SCPPL) and allegedly received foreign contribution.
