SHe-Box Online Complaint Management System for working women to lodge complaints of sexual harassment at workplace launched by Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi

WCD Minister Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi today launched a comprehensive SHe-Box online complaintManagement System for women working in both public and private organizations to lodge complaints of sexual harassment at workplace. The SHe-Box was launched in New Delhi today to ensure the effective implementation of the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act (the SH Act), 2013.

The new SHe-Box portal offers the facility of making online complaints of sexual harassment at workplace to all women employees in the country including government and private employees. Those who have already filed a written complaint with the concerned Internal Complaint Committee (ICC) or Local Complaint Committee (LCC) constituted under the SH Act are also eligible to file their complaint through this portal.

Launching the online facility, the WCD Minister, Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi said that this is a historic step since it is probably the first ever time that the government of any country has launched an online portal to receive complaints of sexual harassment at workplace. The government is completely committed to provide a safe and fair environment to working women. It is for this reason that the WCD Ministry has made efforts to make the setting up of Internal Complaint Committees mandatory at all workplaces, the Minister explained. She said that the WCD Ministry has also produced a manual and has organized training programmes for Internal Complaint Committees and in the next significant step, the SHe-Box has been launched to provide platform to aggrieved women to make their complaints directly so that suitable action is taken to redress their grievances. These complaints will be monitored by the WCD Ministry, Smt Maneka Gandhi assured.

SHe-Box portal is an effort to provide speedier remedy to women facing sexual harassment at workplace. Once a complaint is submitted to the portal, it will be directly sent to the ICC/LCC of the concerned employer. Through this portal, WCD as well as complainant can monitor the progress of inquiry conducted by the ICC/LCC. This is a proactive step taken by MWCD in the wake of the worldwide social media campaign #MeToo, where women have related their experience of facing sexual harassment and abuse. The portal can be accessed at the link given below:

Users of SHe-Box also have the option of interacting with Ministry of WCD through this portal, with an assured time-bound response. The portal also provides information on 112 institutions empaneled by MWCD to conduct training/workshops on the issue of sexual harassment at the workplace. It also has the option for resource persons and institutions willing to contribute to training on this subject in various organisations to submit their applications. SHe-Box will provide a platform to these empanelled institutes/organisations to share their capacity building activities with the Ministry which in turn will be able to monitor the activities of these institutes/organizations so empanelled from across the country.

The Ministry has published a Handbook and Training Module on the SH Act to provide information about the provisions of the Act in easy to use practical manner. The private organizations are encouraged to customize the Training Module as per their extant service rules and disciplinary procedures prescribed therein.

Ensuring the dignity and safety of women must be first priority for any digital society. Towards realisation of the vision of the Digital India programme, the Ministry is promoting utilisation of information and communication technology to achieve the goal of gender equality and women empowerment. It is an effort to utilise the digital space to enable speedier response to the complaints of women against sexual harassment at workplace.

‘Aadhaar for NGOs’: Why nonprofits are uneasy about new order to obtain unique ID from Niti Aayog

The government has made it mandatory for NGOs receiving foreign funds to register with Niti Aayog's NGO Darpan portal.

 

Through a public notice issued on October 4, the Union Ministry of Home Affairs has made it mandatory for all non-governmental organisations that receive or hope to receive foreign funding to register with Niti Aayog's portal NGO Darpan.

The notice states that in order to receive money under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, 2010, NGOs must obtain a Unique Darpan Identification Number from the portal. Registration will involve providing contact details as well as PAN and Aadhaar numbers of the organisation's key functionaries. The deadline for registration has not been specified.

NGO Darpan was set up in 2009 as the erstwhile Planning Commission's NGO Partnership Portal, an online database of nonprofit or voluntary organisations, particularly those funded by the government. The Planning Commission was dismantled and replaced by the policy think tank Niti Aayog after the Narendra Modi government took power in 2014. The portal is meant to be an interface between NGOs and key government ministries and departments.

Registration on NGO Darpan was voluntary. That changed in April this year, when the government submitted a new set of guidelines to the Supreme Court for regulating the nonprofit sector. It proposed to make Niti Aayog the nodal agency for registration and accreditation of NGOs, and made it mandatory for voluntary organisations seeking government funding to register with Darpan and obtain a Darpan identification number. Currently, more than 33,000 NGOs are registered on the portal.

Through the October 4 notice, this requirement has also been imposed on NGOs receiving foreign funding.

This has irked several people in the NGO sector, who see the compulsory Darpan registration either as an added formality with no specific benefit, or as yet another tool that the government can use to clamp down on foreign-funded NGOs. This feeling is shared even by people who have long demanded a central nodal agency to regulate all Indian NGOs.

"This is paranoia on the part of the government – they want to put maximum chains on foreign-funded organisations," said Harsh Jaitli, chief executive officer of the Voluntary Action Network India, better known as VANI, an association of NGOs in the country. "The FCRA law managed by the home ministry already exercises as much scrutiny over nonprofits as is humanly possible. Now they are looking for new ways to clamp down on NGOs."

VANI has long favoured centralising NGO regulation and streamlining the process of their registration, monitoring and accreditation. Since February, it has been advising the government committee that framed the new guidelines submitted to the Supreme Court in April.

Complex system

India has more than 30 lakh voluntary organisations involved in charity, social advocacy, religious operations and other work. They are registered as trusts, societies or nonprofit companies under multiple central and state laws. Many run on government grants, serving as grassroots workers for implementation of welfare schemes.

Broadly, government-funded NGOs that work for rural development are regulated by the Council for Advancement of People's Action and Rural Technology, a nodal agency under the Ministry of Rural Development. Since 2010, the home ministry has been regulating and monitoring the accounts of NGOs licensed to receive funding under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act.

The discussion on simplifying the regulation of NGOs is at least a decade old. In 2007, the central government had proposed a National Policy on the Voluntary Sector, which provided for one central law to regulate all NGOs. Then in 2010, the Planning Commission published a report recommending the setting up of a National Accreditation Council for NGOs. It also asked for strengthening the Darpan portal so that NGOs could apply online for accreditation.

These suggestions were not really followed up and Darpan grew into a portal where NGOs could register optionally, not for accreditation but for promoting themselves to the government. "This was beneficial for organisations because those who wanted government funding could choose to register and get visibility," said Aditya Shrivastava, a lawyer who has worked with several NGOs.

Change for good?

In 2011, in the midst of the anti-corruption movement spearheaded by the social activist Anna Hazare, lawyer ML Sharma filed a Public Interest Litigation in the Supreme Court questioning the financial accountability of Hazare's NGO and others. The case, which led to inquiries into every aspect of the functioning of voluntary organisations in India, is still being heard in the apex court.

In January, the Supreme Court directed the government to frame guidelines for accreditation of NGOs. In February, the rural development ministry constituted a committee for the task. The committee did not have representatives from the nonprofit sector, except for VANI, which served as an advisor.

The guidelines called for overhauling the system, starting with the legal framework for NGO registration. It recommended using modern technology for "less intrusive but adequately robust accountability", and a central ministry as the nodal agency to regulate the sector. Since the agencies under the rural development ministry would not cover NGOs working in urban areas, the committee suggested Niti Aayog could do this job at some point.

Aadhaar for NGOs?

People in the nonprofit sector who had been hoping for a centralised one-stop shop for NGO regulation are now disturbed by the home ministry's decision to make Darpan identity numbers compulsory for foreign-funded NGOs.

"Recommendations in all the old reports were aimed at making NGO-running easier," said Shrivastava, the lawyer. "But instead of Darpan being a one-stop shop, NGOs still have to register with the state charity commissioner and file reports to ministries of rural development or home affairs. Darpan will be an additional registration."

Given how stringent the licensing process under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act already is, Shrivastava suspects the Darpan identification number, which he describes as "Aadhaar for NGOs", could be used to target nonprofit organisations that are at loggerheads with the government.

"Last year, the government brought FCRA-licensed organisations under the scrutiny of the Lokpal Act," said Jaitli from VANI. "Now it is the Darpan portal and Niti Aayog. There are no explanations for these steps, just dictates from the government."

A senior social activist in Delhi, who did not wish to be named, echoed these concerns about multiple registrations. "Niti Aayog should only be concerned with government-funded organisations," the activist said. "Why should others, who are already being scrutinised by the Income Tax department and the home ministry, have to have yet another registration?

The activist pointed out that the purpose of the mandatory Darpan registration is not clear. "This is overall tightening of the regulatory regime, particularly for foreign-funded NGOs," the activist said. "It is a pattern of victimisation of civil society organisations that we have seen since this government has come to power."

Moreover, Shrivastava argued that Niti Aayog was not the ideal nodal agency for governing NGOs. "Ideally the nodal agency should be an existing or a new ministry at the Centre," he said. "Niti Aayog does not have legislative standing."

Still, Jaitli claimed many NGOs are resigned to doing the new Darpan registration despite their reservations. "Voluntary organisations have reconciled themselves to the fact that receiving foreign funding is seen as almost a crime in this country, and that they will be under extreme scrutiny," he said.

Home ministry gets more than Rs 5 crore in kitty as penalty from erring NGOs

According to the FCRA rules, slabs have been put in place for penalty to be paid for non-furnishing of FCRA return till December 31 every year.

The Union home ministry has collected more than Rs 5 crore so far this year as penalty from NGOs which have failed to file their annual income and expenditure statements on time, an official said.

Filing of annual returns by NGOs within the stipulated date is mandatory under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA).

The NGOs had to pay the penalty after they were told that their registration under the FCRA would be cancelled if they do not file the annual returns with the fine, the home ministry official said.

Till September end, the ministry has collected more than Rs 5 crore from these NGOs, the official said.

According to the FCRA rules, slabs have been put in place for penalty to be paid for non-furnishing of FCRA return till December 31 every year.

Up to 90 days from the passing of the December 31 deadline, a penalty of 2% of the amount received during the financial year or Rs 10,000, whichever is higher, has to be paid.

From 90 to 180 days after the passing of the deadline, a penalty of 3 per cent of the amount received or Rs 20,000, whichever is higher, has to be paid.

After 180 days from the passing of the deadline, a penalty of 5 per cent of the amount received or Rs 50,000, whichever is higher, with Rs 500 per day of the delay, has to be paid.

The Narendra Modi government, which has tightened the rules for NGOs, has already cancelled registration of more than 10,000 non-governmental organisations in the last three years for alleged non-filing of annual returns as mandated in the FCRA.

In addition, renewal of more than 1,300 NGOs have been denied for alleged violation of various provisions of the FCRA.

The home ministry has also asked nearly 6,000 NGOs to open their accounts in banks having core banking facilities and furnish details for real-time access to security agencies in case of any discrepancy.

The move was initiated after it was detected that many NGOs have their bank accounts in cooperative banks or state government-owned apex banks or banks which do not have core banking facilities.

Last November, the government had directed more than 11,000 NGOs to file applications for renewal of registration by February 28, and many of them had failed to do so.
