An NGO or Non-Governmental Organization is basically a non-profit or not
for profit organization which strives to work towards the betterment of the underprivileged
sections of Society. NGO’s could have a wide variety of interests of society in mind. This could
include Environmental causes, human and/or animal rights, improving the health and welfare of
children, development work and could even include raising awareness about some causes or
activities of social importance.
With all that being stated, sometimes NGO’s are also established to act as fronts for political as well as religious interests. However, NGOs being non-profit organizations, these entities are not allowed to shell out the profits to the members as dividends. All profits made by the organization have to be invested towards the social cause the NGO is helping.
NGOs essentially raise the money from donors, who might or might not receive tax breaks on their donations. Essentially in India, there are 3 ways to set up an NGO:
One way of registering your Non-governmental organization is incorporating it as a trust. Entities
who register as a trust under the NGO registration procedure are generally those which work with the
eradication of poverty, giving education, as well as providing medical relief. Trust organisations
are irrevocable. This essentially means that these organizations cannot be terminated or changes
unless and until such actions have been approved by the beneficiary.
Trusts aren’t technically under any national rules and regulations, however, some states such as Gujrat and Maharashtra have public trust acts in order to regulate and oversee the affairs of NGOs.
Societies are also known as member-based organizations which operate for charitable purposes. These organizations are almost always run under the authority of a governing body or a management committee. As opposed to trusts, societies come under the jurisdiction of the Indian law, namely Societies Registration Act, 1860.
A Section 8 company is basically a Limited Liability entity which is formed with the purpose of Social welfare and cannot reap any profits. These organizations are established in order to promote science, art, commerce, charity, religion, or any other contributing cause to the betterment of society.
The NGO registration procedure in India comes under the jurisdiction of of the laws formed under the
