From the date of receiving bank account details, an organization need to file form 6C within 15 days. You will require to upload following documents:

  1. Letter from bank for previous designated bank account - saying that it was the FCRA designate account.

  2. The letter you received for opening the SBI New Delhi Main branch.

  3. Signature of chief functionary

After filing the FC 6C form you will receive an approval certificate from the FCRA Department. Such approval certificate is required to be sent by email to the SBI - New Delhi Main Branch. Then the SBI-NDMB will update such approval in their system. After such update is done, an organization can receive foreign contribution in the SBI-NDMB account.
