A case has also been registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on behalf of Oxfam India against its office bearers for allegedly violating the provisions of India’s foreign funding rules. Now under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA), this case has also been registered. Along with this, an FIR has been registered on the orders of the Union Home Ministry.

Now on those allegations, he has also cheated FCRA in a transaction of Rs 12.71 lakh in the year 2019-20. Oxfam India has alleged that in the same way between 2013 and 2016, irregularities were going on in foreign transactions worth Rs 1.5 crore.

According to the CBI, Oxfam India also received around Rs 1.5 crore between 2013 and 2016 directly into its Foreign Contribution Utilization account instead of a bank account. It is also alleged in the FIR that Oxfam India has given Rs 12.71 lakh to the Center for Policy Research (CPR). He transacted in the financial year 2019-20 in violation of the rules of Foreign Regulation or Act (FCRA) 2010.

The CBI said that it has also taken this action on a complaint by the Ministry of Home Affairs. In January last year, the FCRA license of Oxfam India was also suspended. The Ministry of Home Affairs also accused Oxfam India of indulging in “anti-national” activities and then pressurizing the governments of different countries through institutions to pressurize the Government of India for FCRA renewal.

Oxfam India is part of the Global Confederation of Oxfam, which works on issues such as poverty or inequality, gender justice, and climate change. The NGO has already denied any wrongdoing and is also cooperating with the authorities.

It has said that “Oxfam India will also be cooperating with all government agencies, since its FCRA registration is not due for renewal in December 2021. And after we have not renewed our FCRA registration, a petition has also been filed in the Delhi High Court against the decision. The High Court has also asked the Central Government to respond to our petition.

The CBI case against Oxfam India comes at a time when several civil society organizations have faced government scrutiny and action regarding their foreign funding and other activities. The government has said that it is taking action against those who misuse foreign money or violate the law.
