Revocation of the permit

Revocation of the permit to operate an NGO by the Bureau

The Bureau has powers to revoke the permit to operate an NGO where the organization does not operate in accordance with its constitution; or where the organization contravenes any of the conditions or directions specified in the permit.

Before the permit is revoked the Bureau must notify the permit holder and ask such permit holder to show cause why the permit should not be revoked. Where the Bureau revokes the permit, it must notify the permit holder and state the reasons for revoking the same. A permit holder whose permit has been revoked has the option to re apply.
