Julia Clark from TRF wrote that due to regulations of the Government of India, all Indian Rotary clubs and districts be registered under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA). Therefore, TRF can only guarantee payment of grants to Rotary clubs and districts which have FCRA registration as the waiver to clubs and districts has not been renewed. All other payments will experience significant delays and may not be funded as well.
