Govt. bans FCRA license of Rajiv Gandhi Foundation for violating rules

The Center has canceled the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) license of the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (RGF), an NGO associated with the Gandhi family, for alleged violations of the law, officials said.

The action came after an inquiry conducted by an inter-ministerial committee set up by the home ministry in 2020. “Yes, the FCRA license of the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation has been canceled following an inquiry against it,” the official said.

Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi is the chairperson of the RGF, while other trustees include former prime minister Manmohan Singh, former finance minister P Chidambaram, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

RGF was founded in 1991 and from 1991 to 2009 worked on a number of critical issues including health, science, and technology, women and children, disability support, etc. According to its website, it was also active in the education sector.
