There is a strong likelihood that the government may ask CBI to probe alleged acceptance of funds from the Ford Foundation by the activist Teesta Setalvad's Sabrang Communication and Publishing Pvt Limited (SCPPL). This donation being construed as a serious violation of FCRA provisions, which mandate funding from a foreign source to only those recipients who have FCRA registration, they said. Official sources said SCPPL had accepted a grant of USD 2.9 lakh from the Ford Foundation despite being a private firm not having FCRA clearance from the Ministry of Home Affairs under the Foreign Contributions Regulation Act (FCRA). The sources claimed the Home Ministry during its inspection of the company's accounts found that an amount of Rs 50 lakh was allegedly transferred to it by Setalvad's Sabrang Trust which also was in violation of FCRA norms.
