    The point raised by N. Dey are very relevant to those who are associated with social and charitable organisations of native origin having no foreign connections whatsoever, unlike those multi-national, foreign based NGOs who maintain huge paraphernalia at great cost to raise donations and also get FCRA and other approvals just for their asking due to their high-profile and hugely paid executives from the families of top bureaucrats. The small organisations with very little funds and outreach to raise donations are too poor to “pay” for obtaining the approvals of section 35AC of IT Act and FCRA and, everybody knows, without payment of bribe nothing is available in Delhi. Can some media personality take up the case for the native charitable institutions? Why must they alone be discriminated against in matters of 35AC IT Act and FCRA merely for their inability to “follow up and pursue” (that is pay bribe) their petitions which are genuine and valid?

      My reference to N. Dey was wrong, due to another comment seen by him. My comments are with ref. to A. Banerjee’s comments. The error is regretted.

    There are most disturbing news of the National Committee for Promotion of Social and Economic Welfare not meeting regularly, for months at times, as a result of which the number of pending applications u/s 35AC is very huge. There are also reports that the National Committee for Promotion of Social and Economic Welfare disposes of the applications most summarily, entirely guided by the secretariat (the CBDT) which has a rather dubious role in the matter. This can be proven by the rejection of applications from some most genuine organisations carrying on their sterling activities for spreading education, upliftment of the poor, providing healthcare to the poor, etc. It is suggested, in the context of the raging battle on the Lokpal Bill and the apex court’s order creating an SIT for black money, a thorough enquiry must be made in the manner of the rejection of applications and the pace of disposal of aoolications by the National Committee for Promotion of Social and Economic Welfare. Along with this, the pending files/applications must also be investigated to see as to how the CBDT sits over the applications for years waiting for the interested parties to approch the officials either directly or (preferably) through specified Delhi-based agents/agencies/professional representatives. The number of applications rejected without affording any opportunity to the applicants will thoroughly expose the true state ofr affairs in this matter. As the govt. agencies do not take any interest whatsoever, the NAC with its ever alert Chairperson alone can stem the rot in this regard.
