The officials of Home Ministry and Women, Children and Senior Citizen have come to the conclusion that the activities of I/NGOs operating in the country should be monitored.
During a meeting of the officials from the two ministries, led by their respective ministers, the officials raised concern over “increasing irregularities” in I/NGOs with no authority monitoring their activities.
Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa on Thursday said that the two ministries had decided to work closely to curb the existing anomalies in the I/NGOs. “We have decided to work together to develop policies to monitor the NGOs and INGOs in the country,” Thapa said.
Surya Subedi, adviser to Home Minister Thapa, said as per the decision taken by the two ministries, all 77 District Administration Offices had been instructed to monitor the activities of the I/NGOs and report to the Home Ministry.
The meeting also decided to draft a work procedure that would make it mandatory for all I/NGOs to disclose their property details.
The two ministries also decided to scrap the registration of those I/NGOs that have not renewed their registrations for the last three years.
Such organisations shall get a 15-day window to renew their registrations.
Subedi said the registration shall be voided if the concerned I/NGOs fail to apply for renewal within the given deadline.
