  1. Nethra has two exclusive bank accounts that they use - Union Bank of India and State bank of India. The funds that Asha will send will go to the Jeeyar Educational Trust (JET) fund which will then be routed to Union Bank of India.

  2. Per Asha protocol, the name of Nethra project should then be "Jeeyar Educational Trust - Nethra Project" or "Jeeyar Educational Trust - Nethra Vidyalaya" (or whatever you prefer). It will be the best to send me an email before your submit the checklist and make sure that the FCRA document, bank info etc. are up to date. - Abhyuday (treasurer@ashanet.org)
