NGOs in India

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:

  •    Trust
  •    Section-8 Company
  •    Society

Methods for Registering an NGO in India

NGO registration in India can be done under any of the following disciplines:


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.
