      Under FCRA home page, go to second tab “Services under FCRA”. Click on FC4-Intimation Annual Return”. There has to be “Payment” button on right hand side. I can not show you screenshot, as none of my client NGOs had such penalty for filling return. Otherwise you can email FCRA department on support-fcra@gov.in
