Rajiv Gandhi Foundations FCRA licence revoked by Home Ministry

New Delhi: According to officials, the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (RGF), a non-governmental organisation connected to the Gandhi family, has had its licence under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) revoked by the Centre due to alleged legal violations.

The measure was taken following investigations by an interministerial group that the home ministry established in 2020.

"Yes, the FCRA licence of the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation has been cancelled after an investigation against it," an official said.

Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi is the chairperson of RGF while other trustees include former prime minister Manmohan Singh, former finance minister P Chidambaram, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

Set up in 1991, RGF worked on a number of critical issues including health, science and technology, women and children, disability support, etc., from 1991 till 2009.

It also worked in the education sector, according to its website.
