In a big country like India, there are various problems in the society and the government alone cannot tackle all these problems. The NGOs (non-governmental organization)are started with a concept to function as an independent entity to carry out works for the benefit of the society. There are many NGOs working with many underprivileged classes of the society, but there are even more NGOs nowadays asking for donations from different people even at some important locations. I have heard from many that there are fake NGOs, the same is expressed here also by a few members.
Actually, since the process to start an NGO is comparatively much easier, people are registering an NGO by stating that they are providing service to a particular segment. The economic condition of our country is poor, there are a lot of irregularities everywhere and many people are facing hardships. Now, when somebody is describing a certain difficulty of a particular section to people, a few of them get emotional and donate money. You will get the tax relief if the NGO is properly registered, but I have seen many collecting small amounts from people on the streets and generally for these small amounts nobody bother to verify whether they are original or not.
Another big problem all over the country is the concerned authorities never carry out necessary inspections to find out how many are real and how many are fake. As long as there is no widespread awareness of this issue, people will never think of verifying and hence there will be no complaint also to monitor their activities.
