Government has granted FCRA registration to the Amritsar-based association to receive foreign funds to serve langar to devotees of Golden temple.

On the decision, Union Home Minister Amit Shah taking it to twitter said, “Sri Darbar Sahib’s divinity gives strength to us. For decades, the Sangat worldwide was unable to serve there. Modi Government’s decision to allow FCRA to the Sri Harmandir Sahib deepens the connect of Seva between the Sangat globally and the Sri Darbar Sahib. A blessed moment!”

“Happy to share that MHA has granted approval under FCRA to Sri Harmandir Sahib. This will enable the shrine to receive ‘sewa’ from all over the world & go a long way in propagating Gurusahab’s philosophy of ‘sarbat da bhala’. I’m grateful to @AmitShah Ji for making this possible,” Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal.


“Service to humanity is a pivotal pillar of Sikhism. Deeply grateful to PM @narendramodiji & HM @AmitShah Ji for allowing Sikh Sangat around the world to contribute to Sewa at Sri Darbar Sahib through FCRA. Request was received on 27 May. Authorisation issued on 9 Sept 2020,” said Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri.

Langar services in Golden temple are provided by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee.
