The bank accounts of these voluntary organisations and missionaries have been investigated, and at the same time issued a show cause notice to these missionaries asking them to show them the foreign exchange. For this, a moratorium of 6 months has been given. Even after that, if the explanation is found to be unsatisfactory, then the licence of accepting donations from abroad will be cancelled.
