India Development Foundation for Overseas Indians (IDF – OI)

The Government of India has set up the India Development Foundation for Overseas Indians to facilitate contributions of Indian Diaspora to social and developmental projects pertaining to Swachh Bharat, sanitation, education, women’s empowerment and sustainable livelihood. IDF-OI is a not-for-profit Trust chaired by Hon’ble Minister of External Affairs. Important aspects of IDF-OI are as follows:

  • IDF-OI has received exemption from MHA under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA 2010) to receive contributions in foreign currency.
  • IDF-OI does not charge/deduct any administrative charges from the contributions it receives from NRIs/PIOs. Except the bank transaction charges the entire amount received from NRIs / PIOs is transferred to the project implementing agency.
  • To avoid oversight of implementation of programmes funded by overseas Indian donors an agreement will be signed between IDF-OI and project implementing agency.
  • Implementing agency for the programme will send regular feedback reports, photos and statement of utilization of funds to the donor. These will also be posted on IDF-OI’s website.
  • At the site of project funded by the NRI/PIO donors will get in acknowledgement with a signage which states that “The project has been funded by Shri……………. Through IDF-OI.
