    It will do lot good if the statistics about the amount recd. and how spent is published periodically or atleast when some one donates. All other organisations receivng the donations and giving 100 % tax rebate furnishes this information alongwith the receipt.
    People donate not only to claim tax rfelief but to ensure the funds are spent properly. Nobody is willing to pay/donate where Rs.100/- recd in charity is spent with 30% as commission to the fund raisers, 60 to 65% towards adminsistrative charges and 5 to 10% for the needy.
