Renewal of the permit

An organization is required to apply for renewal of the permit within 6 months before the expiry of the same. The Bureau may renew the same upon being satisfied that the organization has complied with the requirements (conditions and directions) in the previous permit.

It is also an offence for an NGO to operate without a valid permit s. 32 (6). The law requires that where an NGO’s permit expires and such NGO continues to operate without renewing the same, it is an offence that attracts pecuniary sanctions of a fine.
