Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said registrations of more than 10,000 NGOs cancelled mainly due to non-filing of annual returns as mandated in the FCRA 2010 and rules made there under. In addition, he said, renewals of more than 1,300 NGOs have been denied or closed in recent past. Rijiju said there are around 24,000 active NGOs now as against 40,000 in 2014-15.
