New rules for NGOs

Last Updated: Saturday 04 July 2015

THE BANGLADESH government has modified procedures for nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) in order to simplify procedures and establish their accountability, reports Mostafa Kamal Majumder. The step followed allegations by the NGO Affairs Bureau that leading NGOs were violating rules.

Under the new rules, the ministry of home affairs will decide whether the NGOs were engaged in anti-state or anti-social activities; whether they were taking part in political activity, and whether they were against religious, moral and social values.
