Why is Ketto refunding the foreign donations? | Ketto Customer Care

Why is Ketto refunding the donation? Is this a permanent change? If not then how long will it last?

As per RBI guidelines, any person who wishes to receive foreign currency for cultural, economic, educational, religious and social purposes should get themselves registered with the Government of India before accepting any ‘foreign contribution’. In your case, Ketto is refunding donations because you are not registered under FCRA, and sending foreign funds without a valid FCRA certificate may expose you to regulatory action. In order to protect Ketto and you as a fundraiser, we have opted to refund the foreign donations.
