To clarity a little further :

Each FCRA Prior permission application is for receiving a specific amount, for a specific purpose and from a specific donor. This is not a blanket permission for all donations/grants for anyone ( foreign entities).

More Info :

The next step is for full FCRA registration, which will facilitate the better receipt of foreign contributions.. However, such permissions are only granted to organizations with a proven track record of function in their chosen field of work for a_period of /three years/. _Well, That is a long way to go !

But till then, Individuals and Organizations in India can help the chapter to grow forward :)

Good news.
I guess this means the Chapter can receive funding from the Foundation and
other foreign bodies?
No, just the Foundation and a specific amount for now.
