For all NGOs with 35AC Donation Options

GiveIndia has designed a system to remind NGOs to send their 35AC recipts. 
1.  A reminder mail from GiveIndia sent to NGO 10 days after the disbursement of funds (if receipt is not already received).
2.  A call is made to NGO around the same time.
3.  If even 20 days after disbursement, the 35 AC receipt is not received in our office, then GiveIndia informs the NGO that 35 AC DOs will be disabled if receipts have not reached  GiveIndia within next 10 days.
4.  If even 30 days after disbursement, the 35 AC receipt is not received in our office, then GiveIndia disables all 35 AC DOs of that NGO and informs the NGO.
5.  DOs enabled only after receipts have reached GiveIndia office.
