THE social welfare ministry will shut down activities of 2,931 NGOs in 16 districts for violating voluntary social agency rules, The Daily Star reports.

Anomalies in fund handling and mismanagement have been detected in most of these organisations while many have been found involved with militancy. Activities of a few NGOs were never reported to the authorities while others have remained inactive for several years, a high official at the ministry said.

The Department of Social Services will execute the closure.

The NGOs include Grameen Kalyan Sangstha, National Income Employment Project, Social Organisation for Distribute, Helpful Association for Social Advancement, Islamia Orphanage, Insaf Sammilito Samaj Unnayan Sangstha, Agency for Social Forestry and Environmental Conservation in Rajbari, and Community Development Organisation, Bhumihin Unnayan Programme, Islami Manab Kalyan Sangstha and Society for Rural Development in Chapainawabganj.
