b)  What criterion are met by those NGOs to get such largessees including umpteen numbers of Trusts / Mistrusts in the name of Gandhi Families/ Neheru families.

c) What mechnism is in place to audit their accts.

d) How much money is recd from foreign ( Say NRI & others) land.

e) Which of them have foreign accts .

f) What is the net income tax rebates they are enjoying.

g) How much lands are provided to them from the central pool if applicable.

Pl advice which ministry/ CPIO i should prefer my RTI Appeal?


For a), b), c) may refer these links:



For d), e) may refer this link http://mha.nic.in/fcra.htm

For f) Income Tax Department must be knowing about it.

For g) Land is owned by various Ministries. The Ministries interacting with NGOs for this purpose would also have some role in getting the land approved for NGOs.

Dear Sir 

Gone through the links provided. Many thanks. And I am amazed as I find such instant answer to my complex questions. But I am equally demanding like a child hell bent on doing some good to the country. I did not get the reply to my question why the hell those ministers / bureaucrats are HELL BENT on giving largesses to those NGOs in the first place? The apex body as I found is the planning commission who is now woken up and asking those NGOs to register rather asking them Either Register or forget about the DOLES.

Where can I find the constitutional provisions , or cabinet approval or some govt notification enabling ministers, ministries , babudom to dole govt money by the crores to NAVIN cHA caha walas, to even NAFIA ALIS etc etc. Its govt money and has to be scrutised by the oversight committee> Is it under CAG ? Demand is too much? 

But at long last I have struck the right chord and won't lament anymore. PL do help.
