Greenpeace India faces cancellation of society's registration
20 Jun 2015
New Delhi, June 19 (JEN): Greenpeace India has been sent a show cause notice threatening the cancellation of the NGO's society registration due to questions over its operations and funding.
“Greenpeace respects the law and we have cooperated with the authorities. We are confident that we will be able to address the issues raised by the Registrar and prove beyond doubt we have acted within the law,” Greenpeace India programme director Divya Raghunandan said.
The show cause letter, dated 16 June, is in response to an inspection of the society’s office in Chennai on 3 June by the Tamil Nadu state government.
The inspection had the intention to look into the organisation’s society status - the legal basis on which Greenpeace India Society’s main operations take place.
