Modes Of NGO Registration

There are 3 modes of NGO registration –

Trust - Public trust is an organization or NGO made for the benefit of the people. Its main purpose is to
eradicate poverty, provide education to underprivileged children’s, providing medical relief etc. The
general aim of a trust is to promote arts, science & literature. Trust cannot be amended or terminated
without court permission. In order to govern public trust, there are no specific laws in India. However,
some states have their own public trust acts. For ex – Maharashtra & Tamil Nadu.

Society - A society is a group of persons whose main aim is not to earn profits but to serve society.
Society is registered under Societies Registration Act, 1860. A Society is established for the purpose of
promoting charitable activities like sports, cultures, religion, education, arts and poverty reliefs. The
governing members of the society are responsible for the management of societal affairs. The duty of
members of the general body includes modification in name and objects, rules & regulations (if
necessary) and the election of members of the governing body.

Section 8 company - The section 8 Company is an organization registered as a non-profit organization
whose main objective is to promote arts, commerce, charity, environment protection, religion, social
welfare, research, education, sports and science. The Section 8 Company is not registered for the
purpose of profit, but it is registered for the purpose of charity. This type of company is the same as a
society or a trust. The Section 8 Company does not pay dividends to its members or shareholders. Its
income or profits are used for promoting charitable objects only.
