The deadline for verification of NGO’s is finally here.


The Written Laws (Miscellaneous Amendments) (No. 3) Act, 2019 amended the Section 17 of the Non-Governmental Organisations Act, 2002 (“the Act”) requiring registered non-governmental organisations (“NGO’s”) to ascertain their details with the Registrar of NGOs. The amendment also introduced a new requirement for NGOs to renew their registration after every ten (10) years. Following the mandatory verification exercise, NGOs are now issued with new certificates of registration for NGO’s which have a validity period of ten years. The renewal of the certificates will have to be initiated six (6) months before the expiry date. It is noteworthy that the renewal of an NGOs’ registration is at the discretion of the BGO Board which may or may not approve the renewal of the certificate.
