The government informed the Lok Sabha on Tuesday that it has received complaints against 18 NGOs for their alleged involvement in conversion into Christianity by inducements, allurement and misrepresentation since 2018.

He said in his reply that appropriate action has been initiated with respect to the complaints, based on the facts and circumstances of each case under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA), 2010.

The said associations are Metropolitan Mission; Swaantana Seva Samiti; Oikonomas Ministries; Bikkavolu Charitable; Herald of Good News Society; India Rural Evangrlical Fellowship; Living Sacrifice Ministries; Life Givers; Salesian Andhra Society; Diocese of Nellore Society; Love-n-Care Ministries; Indian Christian Ministries; AMG India International; Shalom Trust for Relief, Education and Mission; Good She-herd Convent; Samantha Community Development and Welfare Society; Harvest India; and Sylom Blind Centre.

Stating that the FCRA, 2010 provides a legal mechanism to deal with violation of its provisions, Rai further said that such mechanism includes an audit of accounts of such NGOs, an inspection of their accounts and records, and verification of their onfield activities and so on.

The FCRA certificate of such NGOs may be suspended depending upon the facts and circumstances of the case, Rai informed.
