      Yes even I have heard the same. And what about organizations who have send DDs? How they get the money back. I think, department should come up with online renewal form with facility to pay online.

    Dear sir,

    We made the renewal application 1 month before the expiry of registration i.e on 24th July, 2015. 100 days has passed but there is no communication about the rejection or acceptance of the renewal application. There is no contact details where we can ask for the status of the application. We know that we made a mistake by not applying ontime. Whether we are required to make afresh renewal application or we should ask for “condonation of delay”. Please guide me with this issue.

    As mentioned in this blog, no one has received FCRA renewal or even query letter.
    if you have made application before one month, where is delay in such case?

    the last date for filing FCRA renewal was October 31st. I think you have applied well before the dealine. unless of course you have had an ongoing FCRA project which is continuing for the next years. So dont worry. may the Ministry will come u[p with a list online for renewal

    Yes Vaibhav sharma is right.

    All of us have to resubmit the FCRA renewal online again and the last date is march 31 2016. Even if you have submitted a hard copy before Oct 2015 31st. The link is given in FCRA online. use your same username password as for FC annual returns.


    we made out physical application as early as in apr 2015.
    Now they are informing that we should do online only and forget what is done before????
