“Why NGO sector needs basic reforms?”

Editor’s note: The Times of India recently posted the above-titled blog, which reads in part as follows:

Amnesty International’s brouhaha about the new FCRA regulations and subsequently, its decision to wind up activities in India have evoked response on expected lines. Interestingly, responses from the strong and wide network of civil society movement in India are feeble, a reflection of the fact that society at large, perhaps is least concerned about whatever happens to these NGOs. This is not a healthy sign, although the NGO sector itself is largely to blame for this situation.”
