FIR Against Oxfam India :-
The CBI has filed a complaint against an NGO called Oxfam India. According to the investigation bureau, the NGO might have violated the law called FCRA. The FCRA is a rule that controls how people, groups, and charity organizations in India accept and use money from other countries.
The police made a complaint after looking through Oxfam India's buildings in Delhi and Bengaluru. The CBI did the searches because they were told that Oxfam India might have done something wrong.
The CBI has said Oxfam India got 1.5 crore rupees from outside the country between 2013 and 2016. But they didn't put this money in the right bank account or tell the government like they were supposed to do according to the FCRA. The report says Oxfam India spent the donation money on things that were not allowed in their registration, which is against FCRA.
The violation of laws includes Section 35, related to companies breaking the law, Section 37, applied when company leaders break the law, and Section 39, applied to failure to keep the right records.
According to various reports, Oxfam India's offices were searched by the CBI. The CBI took some papers and electronic things to look at them more closely.
Oxfam India said it is working with the authorities and has been honest about its money matters. The organization wants to help the people in India who are not treated well. They promise to do this while following the rules.
