Less than 10 percent NGOs have filed returns, CBI tells SC

New Delhi: The CBI on Friday told the Supreme Court that out of 30,81,873 NGOs in India, spread over 26 states and seven union territories, only about 10 percent have filed their income-expenditure statements.

The investigating agency sought another two months extension to compile all the information it was expecting from the state governments.

The Central Bureau of Investigation urged the bench of Chief Justice H.L. Dattu and Justice Amitava Roy to direct Karnataka, Odisha and Telangana to furnish all information as directed by the court by its earlier order.

The investigating agency said only 2,90,873 NGOs have filed their annual returns.

It told the court that Karnataka, Odisha and Telangana have so far only provided names and the number of NGOs registered in their respective states, without furnishing information about whether they have filed their balance sheets or not.

The apex court was told that the CBI was still awaiting complete information from these three states.

The CBI said complete information has been received from the other states, and all the union territories.
