Still, I worked in NGOs all are fraud, they completely concentrate in making of money by creating false bills and fake documentations, most of funding agencies just looks at only documents they don't want to see whether they are working or not. Ex. APSACS they are wasting public money by giving crores to NGOs, but the pros see only documentation but not work. So please don't waste public money by giving NGOs.

I have doubt on NGOs. Sealdah Ralway station is infested with CINI staff+RPF+child women welfare ministry (Combined project for children on platform). They exist. But do not see any change in unnecessary child birth on platforms. These children also exist side by side and they increase day by day. CINI and RPF staff don't actually bother anything! I don't know why they are appointed their! CINI announces in platforms to report child abuse/lost child etc. But these children are right under their nose! No need to ask for reporting! One child with down syndrome even worked for years for platform stalls, bringing water buckets. I don't see him now. Expecting (only expecting) CINI has done something good to him, but that only after I reported them on twitter. Not before that! Some NGOs in the same place, run schools for them. But they don't even bother that their pupils are addicted to drugs/ fevicol/ dendrite. Their staffs (teacher) talk slang languages among them, and in front of children.

NGO's are private organisation for betterment of society. NGOs are working for poor people to provide them food, shelter, education, clothes and some NGOs are to help women from women harassment, some NGOs are to help people to fight against severe diseases like cancer, HIV, heart failure, liver transplant and many more dangerous diseases. They provide needy people money for their treatment, proper guidance for their treatment and proper match of heart, liver, bone marrow, blood for their treatment. So, NGOs are really helpful for poor people and needy people. For example, NGO named PRAYAAS at Amity University Rajasthan, that NGO's member goes on weekend to the village named Achronal to teach students in their school and provide them clothes to wear and also feed them with delicious food. So, NGOs in India really works for others but as we know every coin has two sides and there are many corrupted people who can work for their own vested interests in the name of NGOs and they are the one's who are spoiling the name of NGO and a good cause in society but if everyone at NGO is going to work for needy people it will really make a better India.

NGO are the non-government organization that works for the betterment of the people. As every coin has two sides, similarly there are some people who work sincerely while there are some who don't.

But there are many NGO who are working for the betterment of poor people, for orphan children, for physically handicapped people. So we can say that NGO is important for society.

Though most of the NGO's in India are working for the benefit of poor of India and demonstrate some field like health, education, food, providing home, safety and protection of women, animal, and senior citizen, trees etc. These all are noble causes, in today time most of people have sufficient money to purchase necessary things and well living of self and dependent members so they donate few part of their money to these NGO's. But like other professions there some negativity attach to it. Today's world is professional all have their families to feed and money's needed for these purposes also one can give his 100% to the organization only if there is no financial burden on him.

Hello all, I am glad to read each one of your comments in the thread. I agree that it doesn't matter whether an NGO is giving 100% or less but the positive point is that the NGO's are doing for the society i.e. educating, helping senior citizens, health sector, etc.

Though there are many fake NGO's who run it for their own selfish benefits but because of them, we cannot ignore the genuine NGO's who are actually doing good for the society and poor.

Bigger NGO's with known names only end up getting a donation from donors and all the funds from other sources while the mid-size NGOs struggle to get a donation.

Considering all this, we are building a platform to connect NGOs and donors together.

Yes, the NGOs do fill their pockets. Who doesn't wants to fill his pockets? I personally suppose no one is there who doesn't like luxury and there is nothing selfish in it because it's natural. But it doesn't mean that they don't work for the people. They are at least loyal enough to look forward to public interests. Even if they have selfish motives behind it rather ends up in the betterment of the society at least they don't sell themselves up like the government.

NGO's are working in INDIA very properly and with all dedication.

NGOs are doing their work with all their efforts and resources available to them.

Mother Teresa who worked for the orphan children, didn't work for the money. Nana Patekar who donated his 90% of the earning to the charity& worked for the farmers.

NGOs do the work which governments should do.

I would just say NGOs are "by the people, for the people, of the people".

NGOs or non-government organization are organizations which provide basic needs to poor people i.e education medicine and employment etc actually NGOs are boon for poor people because it helps a lot but to provide basic needs is not a government responsibility to provide education is not a government responsibility to provide medicine is not a government responsibility yes it is government responsibility and government is not fulfilling it so a person which os not responsible to do any work doing work so how can we blame it so how can we blame NGOs if some corrupt people is present in NGOs we have to point out those corrupt people not, NGOs so I think NGOs are doing well

Peya said: (Sep 28, 2015)  
I worked for a NGO for couple of years. Initially I was under the impression that NGOs are doing genuine work. They were paying well since they own a Bank and Insurance Company. The thing which I noticed was that the top management was enjoying and lower management was struggling they had to go visit slum areas daily and struggle in dirt filth. And if they don't butter the top management they were sacked from the job. This NGO had a appraisal process where each one had to prove their worth. The person who is visiting slums daily and slogging was humiliated and insulted left and right during appraisal process.

But as long as you are good with the senior management and buy them gifts you are spared. So technically it was not the hardworking or sincere employee who was working it was the manipulative and opportunistic who was working with the slum kids. Many of the employees were mere young girls in for pocket money and they knew how to get it from their rich male bosses. All said and done overall the atmosphere was not conducive for decent work. The top management wasn't even bothered with lower hierarchy they were just enjoying with the trustees roaming around in cars and tours across India. Government needs to check thoroughly the work of NGOs and not take a bribe from them.

But with my experience of working with them I would say they are a shady lot RTI has to be introduced and we need to get answers about their work ethics.

This in response of comment of Amar Deep Tiwari,

Let us look at NGOs as a complimentary and support system of the government We must appreciate that fact that government Alone will not be able to do every thing on its own, every welfare scheme and plans does have have an 'NGO element' in them.

We cannot rule out NGOs existence. Coming to your statement "Behind these organisations people make only their life better instead of poor people" Please note that today's NGos are much more or rather very professional. The staff invests years of professional education and mind you a professional social work degree from a premier institute in India is expensive. However, even the senior most staff members in the organisations do not get paid closer to 15-20% of salary if he/she works in a corporate entity. So it is generalization that that 'they make their life better'.

Social work today is not about living a life of renunciation like a Sadhu or a Nun, it is a profession and like in any other profession, only if staff is paid decently will they be in a better condition to serve others. At the end each one of us has a family to take care of. How does one save for his/her old age? Health costs are rising, children's education in a decent school is getting difficult to pay for. I have seen my colleagues in NGO working for paltry salaries, and getting huge salaries when they moved to a company or abroad (huge by even western standards).

Going by the logic, so many people choose govt services, which are today very highly paid, and mind you each govt staff is paid out taxes. Who pays these taxes? You and me. Govt's work is also not a business but a 'service', and going by this logic why should the govt. Servants have very high salaries, govt benefits, housing, vehicles and what not depending on their job profiles. They are doing 'service' and should not have air conditioned cars, offices, cabins, leave travel concession (LTC) , or concessional travel for govt. Airline of railways. "Why" should they? Railways is not a profit making venture but a public service company. However, even they are human beings, they deserve to be getting what is due to them, they are entitled to all these, because only when your needs are satisfied, will you be in the capacity to do for others, they have their families to take care of.

So, let us not get into this. Yes, there will always be exceptions where some of the NGOs who may have done malpractice or broken the law at some level, but most NGOs are formed with a positive intention to 'serve a particular need/cause'.

Tax deductions are provided for donations to encourage people to do charity. No one can create an NGO to save taxes, mind you there are so many compliance and rules today that it is difficult to create an NGO to 'save taxes. '.

By the way how many of us simply donate when visiting a holy shrine or a place of worship, without questioning the utility of these anonymous donation boxes? We trust that it has gone to safe hands, and will be used for betterment of the shrine, facilities of that place etc. And other service activities.

Let us not generalize our singular experiences. If you want to contribute to an NGO, internet is at your disposal. Check the website, speak to the staff, representatives, speak to the beneficiaries, look at all the valid registrations, documents importantly, ask for their 'Annual Report'. Please Google for leads to their history of any untoward event/happening. But do not go to a non-profit organisation with an 'attitude of doubt or skepticism'.

Most NGOs are so very professional today, as such they have ways to look at their own efficiency, may be by way of being conscious of cost per beneficiary, maintaining a healthy ratio of administrative and programme related expenditures, measuring 'Social Return on Investment' (SROI) , maintaining staff-beneficiary ratio, maintaining a reasonable 'Cost of Fund raising', conducting impact studies, practices such as having well defined Key Performance Indicators (KPI) and Key Result Areas (KRA) KRAs, drawing up operation plans, internal and external reporting systems. Hence, to ensure that a maximum no. Of people benefit with the limited resources available, you need a 'Professional and qualified Social Worker' who does not come for free, s/he has brains, ideas, innovations, ability to manage, lead and motivate teams, show results and efficiency. Professionals have to be paid.

An NGO's work is "People to People' and a mental and emotional draining (in addition to personal life) is inevitable. They need to be paid their due. An ambulance on call for common man, a child helpline, a suicide helpline, a distress tollfree line, these were all innovations of a 'social worker' which might have over time adopted into our admisistrative systems over time. The caller to these numbers may have been a rich child, or a well heeled woman calling for help in suicidal circumstances/distress. NGOs are for all of Us.

Volunteer with them as some one suggested, to have a better understanding of their work look at them as partners in social well being.

Hello friends,

This topic is quite a matter of discussion. Coming forward to do charitable activities for poor and needy people is a great and respectable task. We should appreciate that, NGO people take steps to return to the society that has given a lot to them.

But yes, indeed, there's a flip side of the coin where people uses it as a medium of conversion of BLACK into WHITE. People open charitable trusts, put some "DONATION BOXES", dump there Black money in that box and then buy the assets in the name of that trust.

A very common thing that I have noticed while doing Audit of a NGO, that people working on field level are the one who faces the most problems but get paid with, I will charitably say, pannys. On the other hand, people working at management level get paid quite handsomely.

Funds sent by government companies, other NGOs, foreign government are used in a manner by which almost 40% of money is absorbed by the management in the name of their salaries and overheads (indirect costs).

My personal view stands as, they do the good job but still they are not using the resources at their best.

Every NGO's has their own goals to reach. For example, some NGO's aim at reducing unemployment while some others aim at providing education or shelter for needy. Their work should be appreciated as they are non profit and service oriented organizations. It is equally true that in very few NGO's the funds are being misused.

In order to overcome such issues, one must know how the money which we offer as funds is used by the NGO. Besides offering funds we must also accompany the NGO's (as a volunteer) in their working when we get time. Then we can know how the money is being used and we can also get to know their steps to reach their goals.

Hello friends, NGOs are Non-Governmental Organisations and Non Profit organisations also, funded by legal persons or party. These organisations are boon for poor people. The work of these organisations is to provide education and medicine and provide information to live life in a better way specially women of ruler areas.

NGOs fights for people's rights. NGOs give employment which is major problem. There are some areas where government agencies are unable to do work there NGOs wok well. There are more than 20 lacks of NGOs in India having 1 NGO for each 600 people, but we Indians are still poor. These results show that NGOs are made to reduce the taxes.

Behind these organisations people make only their life better instead of poor people. So finally it could be say that NGOs are need of society to make life better but some reforms can be made so the working method of NGOs could be change.

Yes, it is true that some NGOs work for making money or for saving their black money and convert it to white money. However, there are some real good NGOs who also make money to sustain the lives of their sincere and honest workers and to sustain the organization in itself. Had these sincere people worked in the corporate world these might have earned in millions! However, they chose to help others. So does that mean they have no right whatsoever to earn money!

People not helping others want to earn millions and believe that those helping others should live hand to mouth. That is keeping double standards. I believe that those working for others should earn more than anyone else or at least at par with the world! Because they deserve so.

NGOs in India are emerging at a rate tentatively equally to its population growth.

Since its been enough years to watch out the results of having NGOs in our social and economic systems since their appearance in India at a large scale its not illogical to assess the importance of them.

First of all NGOs have worked more for rich people to defend their black money than they have for concerned people.

Its very easy to have an NGO on paper with not an efficient mechanism of regulation and control of government, that is the reason why they are emerging this much fast.

As far as relevance is concerned its better to tax a bit more for public private partnership to implement schemes than creating a force of people who take things for granted (As no NGO volunteer takes any incentive, so long term effect can be this) and end up with creating inefficient socio-eco system here.

I think NGO is a business like any other business. Most of the NGO start collecting money after December because they know in few months people will fix tax returns and so they may be looking for tax exemption 80g, etc.

NGOs collect money from people then deduct their expenses like salary of people working in NGO, office supply charges, electricity charges, telephone charges, travel charges, etc like any other company and the remaining amount goes to the needy person. If you donate Rs 100 then may be 50% or more is consumed by NGO itself. However, NGO creates awareness among people that there are needy people who may benefit from the charity.

80g or any tax exemption in the name of donation is not useful in saving money from tax. Actually, donation means giving away your money so there is no saving. If you do math you will understand what I am saying. Best thing is to identify who is the needy person and directly give him help to avoid overhead cost of NGO. There is no doubt that people make their living by creating NGOs.

Hello friends.

Well, good topic for the discussion. I consider NGOs are doing good work in our country. NGOs are helping to eradicate poverty, unemployment, illiteracy. But rampant corruption always frustrate us. Even in NGOs there is always drastic possibility to do this activity because everywhere all types of peoples are living in this country. But I think NGOs are improving something.

For example:-people are helping to save cow by giving shelter in their field. Meanwhile, government give ten lakh rupees to save cows but some leader deteriorate the image of NGOs. So this is my humble request to people who want to join NGOs and who are going to join NGOs. Please do welfare of the people. So our should be free from above maintained rampant glitches.

I want share my experience with one famous ngo in andhra pradesh is nirmaan I saw people living there own jobs and working over there. They all are have only one passion, the rise of a great Nation.

Doesn't matter whether a NGO is giving 100 % or less but the positive point is that the NGO's are doing for the society i.e. educating, helping senior citizens, health sector, etc. So, its good that there are some very good Ngo's in the country and those which are not that good and making money is also in some or another way contributing but certainly things would change if every Ngo will do what it supposed to do.

Positive thing is that constant welfare of society with a slow rate or fast depends on the generosity of the various Ngo's towards their work.

This NGO also work for poor senior citizen, because in uttarakhand, It is a big problem, young people leave village to earn from big city but unfortunately never come back and their parents are there in hills without any support.

As some people said NGO's are mainly to save tax.

On the other hand as the ngo's are more than 5 million in India but still we are the poorest country in the word because there are people who are showing their selfish attitude towards getting more money, corruption is also another factor in the failure of large no. Of organisation.

But when we see in practical in India nearly 40, 000 ngos are there which getting donations in crores from people, if they spend this ammount really for welfare of society therre wiil be no more poor people and illiterates but in practical there is poor development in society of our country besides govnmt effort apart ngos effort (nearly 40, 000.

As already explained by many above, basically a NGO takes financial help from society so as to use them to help the needy people fight poverty, illiteracy etc. In return government exempt them from taxes. I personally know my college friends who are running a NGO to educate hapeless children. They started it with the help of college friends and as days passed by they are working on a huge scale and doing very well for the betterment of poor children in Karnatak & Jharkhand. Super 30 batch being run by Ex-IPS officer in Bihar is also a kind of NGO teaching poor children for IIT-entrance.

On the basis of above two examples I can say that there are some NGOs in India which are doing justice to their motto and actually helping the needy ones.

For those region who are not aware about the development happening in the world, who don't carry some basic skills, or not aware about the skills they have or not getting the opportunity to encash their skills, I think NGOs are providing good platform to them.

Hello! this is sujoy. By functional defination, a NGO is conserned with the provision of relief to poor, medical and education - an organisation which is operating without seeking any profit. They obtain sizable amount of donations from different parts of society in exchange of promise to utilise them for above stated purpose. Realising this noble work executed by the NGO, Govt grant them relief from any taxation libility. But the actual picture is completely different in the sense that some persons utilise this as a umbrella to escape from the taxation liability. How this is possible ? say, Mr. X, being promoter of NGO, received his personal income in the name of NGO and utilise them for own benefit by way of showing this as expenses incurred for general/common benefit. This mechanisim will get him escape from tax obligation.

So, in most of the cases, persons, strongly related with NGO are benefited at the cost of society's welfare.

Hi every one I want to express that NGOs plays a important role in an infant life. But fact is that how much. Because I think there are many people who contribute a lot. For this type of association but they don't know how much there effort is praised. I want to share something from all of you that one of my best friend is from NGOs. And he got every thing that a child have right to get it from their parents.

Hello friends, as we all known there are always a different types of people live in this society, some are good and some are bad. What I think is that there are people who works for the betterment of others who knows what that felling of satisfaction is by helping others, that type of people will only work for betterment of others and and for the society and at the same time there are people who work for ngos to get name and fame. People like those should understand that how can they do such a hineous act. God has made them human beings and it is not at all a sign of human qualities.

But the fact is, there are millions of ngos in the world if they would have worked for the welfare of people then belive me my dear frnds there would not have been so much poverty and illness prevailing in the society. There are people who are taking advantage of ngos but at the same time there are certain people who have not forgotten that they are human beings and they are working for the betterment of people and society.

Hello friends, It would not be a gain sharing for many of us. My question is are NGO's really performing the work they are mend for the ans is a BIG NO reasons being many people join NGO's just 2 make money if you look at the data many of the people who run these NGO's are generally political leaders, entrepreneurs, or some social workers many of them join this just to save on tax or to convert their black money so where is the point of helping poors, physically challaged their are around 1. 2 million NGO's operating in India which is having a total population of 1. 2 billion (census 2000).

Now the question arises why these 1. 2 million NGO's are not able to serve the purpose they are mend for the reason is clear their pocket is much bigger then any life, environment etc.

Now a days NGO are helping poor kids to study and get good clothes and even they are trying to get contribution from many companies for collecting clothes, shoes, books and many more. This way they are awareness about the help which any Indian must do.

I am really accord with this statement that NGO's work for other's. Many types of people lives in India in which some people acts as candid work and some people only work for their own prestige. I will say that this is only for that people who is honest about their aim.

Abhijit , what you said is right. May be the people who are working for NGOs are the people with good mindset to work for the poor. But the people who organises such NGOs are considering only their benefit.

Today the value lies if you have got the power in your hand, whatever may be the power strength either ministry level power or NGO. So in view point no doubt some NGOs gather money for the benefit of their members but mostly the huge lumpsum money which they gather hardly reach to the person concerned .

NGOs work for people especially those in rural areas. They are responsible for the major leap in self employment. They are the boon to poor people.
