GoI led by Narinder Modi got opportunity to grant FCRA approval to Sri Harmandir Sahib, well known centre of faith & harbinger of peace to all communities. This will open doors for believers across the world to contribute & offer Sewa to Guru sahab. The License have been granted by the Ministery of Home affairs  for five years.

The approval has been granted under Foreign contribution regulation Act 1976 (FCRA) , which regulates receipt of foreign contributions or aid from outside India to India territories.   

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) granted the licence after the Golden Temple management applied for FCRA registration on May 27, 2020.  

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday said the the government''s decision to allow the Golden Temple in Amritsar to receive foreign funds is a pathbreaking move and it will once again showcase the outstanding spirit of service of the Sikh community. On Wednesday, the Home Ministry approved registration of Sri Harmandir Sahib under the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 2010, allowing it to receive foreign funding.  "The decision on FCRA at the Sri Harmandir Sahib is a pathbreaking one which will once again showcase the outstanding spirit of service of our Sikh sisters and brothers," Shah tweeted.

At the Golden Temple, the management aims to run a free community kitchen, give financial assistance to the poor and needy, including children. So far, the management under the aegis of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee has been able to fulfil these objectives through domestic donations.

Now, it will also be able to receive foreign contributions to meet expenses on these noble endeavours.

This will enable the shrine to receive ''sewa'' from all over the world & go a long way in propagating Gurusahab''s philosophy of ''sarbat da bhala''. I''m grateful to @AmitShah Ji for making this possible," she tweeted on Wednesday.
