Many donors have donated crores of rupees in PM Kearsfund.such as Ratan Tata and his company have given Rs 1500 crores. In contrast, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi have not given even a single penny to the PM Cares Fund. Despite this, from time to time, they have objected to the PM Cares Fund, raising questions.

The Center for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) NGO, through Advocate Prashant Bhushan, had put the petition in this case on the instigation of the Congress party. CPIL said, “The Government has ignored the Disaster Management Act by creating PM Cares Fund. For disaster management, the amount donated from any individual or institution should be in the account of National Disaster Response Fund (NDRF). Whatever amount has been received in PM Cares Fund, it should be transferred to NDRF itself. A new plan should be notified under the Disaster Management Act to deal with Corona.
The Congress Party and Rahul Gandhi have got a tough slap from the Supreme Court on the issue of PM Cares Fund. A 3-judge bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan, said in its judgment on Tuesday, “PM Cares cannot order transfer of funds from the National Disaster Response Fund (NDRF). These two are separate funds. If a person wants to contribute to the NDRF, it is not banned. There is also no need for a new disaster relief plan.

The petition sought transfer of PM Cares fund to NDRF. It was also stated in the petition that there was no need for such funds and the funds received in the fund are not being audited. In response, the central government said that during the Corona crisis the PM Cares Fund has been created for voluntary donations. This is different from a fund like NDRF.
What is PM Cares Fund
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has created a PM-Cares fund to deal with the corona virus crisis. This fund has been created to deal with any emergency such as Corona and to provide immediate relief to the people affected by it. Creation of this fund was considered necessary for the construction of infrastructure with financial help to the affected people during the time of crisis or disaster. The Prime Minister is the Chairman of the Trust and its members include Defense Minister, Home Minister and Finance Minister. The registration of PM Cares Fund has been registered as a Public Charitable Trust under the Registration Act, 1908 on March 27, 2020. The PM Cares Fund is headquartered at the Prime Minister’s Office in South Block.
Audited by independent auditors
The PM Cares Fund will be audited by an independent auditor. In a meeting of the trustees of the PM Cares Fund held on 23 April 2020, New Delhi has been appointed as the auditor of the PM Cares Fund for the next three years. The PM Cares Fund will be audited at the end of every financial year.
