Standard Process for FCRA Registration for NGOs
Register an NGO in any of these Forms in India:
- Trust Registration
A Trust can be set up when the settler of the property transfers it or its benefits for the well-being of the recipients, or in the public interest. This NGO is registered with the main aim of utilizing the asset of the Trust for a social cause, or public welfare. This is called a Charitable Trust. You can never have its fixed beneficiary because it is the massive public as a whole. It’s irrevocable unless the court interferes.
- Society Registration
It has the Memorandum of Association and Rules and Regulation or bylaws. The society registration process requires it to be registered with the Registrar of Society or Commissioner of Trusts, which is appointed by the State Government. Its MOA can be updated while increasing or decreasing the aims or working overtime. This NGO must inform the registrar about the changes in its objectives every year. It can be shut under the termination clause in the Bylaws. Upon Its termination, the society can be absorbed or merged with the society having a similar aim.
- Section 8 Company Registration
It requires MOA and AOA forms as the legal document of a Section 8 Company. Section 8 company registration is compulsory to file under the Central Government through the Registrar of Companies. It requires approval from the Registrar and has to undergo annual compliance.
Upon any type of NGO registration, it becomes mandatory to apply for PAN.
