NEW DELHI(PTI): A show cause notice has been served by the Home Ministry to an NGO run by Supreme Court lawyer Indira Jaising for alleged violation of Foreign Contribution Regulation Act.
‘Lawyers Collective’ has allegedly received foreign contribution between 2006-07 and 2013-14 and the Home Ministry reportedly found discrepancy in the filing of annual returns of the NGO where Jaising, who had served as the Additional Solicitor General in UPA government, was functioning as Secretary.

When contacted, Jaising said she has not received any notice from the Home Ministry. “I have not received any notice from the MHA. I am currently in the USA teaching at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. I will respond as and when I get the notice,” she told PTI in a text message.
