Ford Foundation on Home Ministry's Watch List

The home ministry has placed the international  funding organisation - the Ford Foundation  on watch list and its funds be routed with proper clearances in the interest of "national interest and security".

Ministry sources said the step was taken after it was found that NGOs which have been receiving funds from Ford have not filed the mandatory documents, like balance sheets and annual reports.

Over the last few months, the government had blocked millions of dollars of grant from the Ford Foundation to NGOs, sources said.
