The #notification, issued on June 20, specifies that the #LokpalLaw will now apply to any registered #society, #trust or non-profit organisation receiving annual government grants of Rs 1 crore or more, or receiving #foreignfunds worth Rs 10 lakh or more.
As “public servants” under this law, the office bearers of these #NGOs can be charged by the Lokpal in case of any corruption. But even when there are no irregularities, the law requires them to declare their assets in public, a clause that has irked several charitable enterprises across the country.
Deadline – Extended to Indefinite….
Further Notification awaited for NGO – Compliance under the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act of 2013
