PATNA: As many as 34,000 Non-Governmental Organisation (NGOs) operation in Bihar face cancellation of their registration for failing to provide required information to the state government.
All these NGOs had been asked by the state registration department to submit IT returns and audit reports to the government but they ignored the directive.
These NGOs were asked to submit required documents in view of the reports that most of them were only running on paper, opened to get foreign funds or being used as means to protect the black money.
In the light of the directive, only 9,000 out of total 43,000 could submit full details to the government by August 24—the last deadline to file such reports.
“We will soon start the process to cancel registration of the NGOs which failed to provide us details by the set deadline,” Inspector General of registration, excise and prohibition department Aditya Kumar Das told the media today.
