NGOs in India

An NGO or Non-Governmental Organization is a non-profit or not for profit organization which aims to work towards the upgrading of the deprived sections of society. NGO’s could have a wide diversity of interests of society in mind. This could include Environmental conditions, education, promoting the health and welfare of children, etc. NGO registration online in India, there are 3 ways to set up :

    One way of registering your Non-governmental organization is by incorporating it as a trust. Entities who register as a trust under the NGO registration procedure are normally those which work with the elimination of poverty, giving education, and providing medical relief.


    Societies are also names as member-base organizations that work for charitable goals. These organizations are nearly always run under the power of a governing body or a management committee.


    A Section 8 company incorporates the purpose of Social welfare. It is the same as the NGO Registration. The organization establishes to promote science, art, commerce, charity, religion, or any other relevant cause to the progress of society.

For all the NGOs its mandatory to apply for Niti Aayog registration, its a government portal that invites all the Voluntary Organizations (VOs)/ Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to Sign Up on the Portal.

Section 8 Company Registration

Well, when we talk about Section 8 Company people are a bit confused with the trust, society, and NGO. In short, Section 8 Company Registration, Society Registration, Trust Registration all these are level in NGO Registration. They are basically a category of NGO registration one can opt for. Section 8 company is the same as the NGO registration process. Section 8 company is a non-profit organization (NPO) that can be registered as a trust, society or NGO under Section 8 of Companies Act 2013. Even registering section8 company offers more benefits than society registration or trust registration. It is counted for the charitable purpose or for not-for-profit business. The license is issued to Section 8 company under section 8 Companies act 2013. This type of Company has more credibility among donations makers, government departments, and other stakeholders. The purpose of registering the Company is to promote Art, Science, literature Commerce, Technology, Sports, Education, Social Research, Social Welfare, Religion, Charity and Protection of Environment for charity. We take an initiative to simplify the process of company registration just for you. There are three main conditions for granting the NGO Registration license/ Section 8 company are:
  • The company must form to promote charitable objective accomplishments.
  • Income and profits must be used towards these objects.
  • No paying of dividends to the members of the company
The process of registering a Section 8 Company is the same as the NGO registration process, Trust or Co-operative Society under the Companies Act 2013.

Why Section 8 Company is more preferable over Trust & Society?

The first point to clear the confusion in the minds of people is NGO Registration and Section 8 company registration are no way different. But is the same. Section 8 company is more preferable because of its reach. That can be registered all over India like private limited companies. Trust & society registration are done only locally. It's better to register your NGO at the national level in the form of section 8 company. Lets' have a quick overview of the benefits of registering:
  • Transparency

    A trust is an agreement among parties, whereby one party operates an asset for the profit of another party. Society is a group of persons, who grow together for initiating any literary, scientific or charitable purpose. "A Section 8 Company/NGO registration is a non-profit enterprise affiliated with a commercial venture. Also built for the progress of goals similar to trust or society."

  • Board of Management

    In registering section 8 company it's clear that it will have board members. They take quick decisions and prevention of takeovers is easier than in society and Trust. How? The power of a single man prevails in a trust and a society is almost more democratic, and the consent is required for a resolution to pass.

  • All over India Registration

    Businessperson or companies didn't know that for Society & Trust registration you have to make an appeal in the same state you live or reside. Like if you're from Maharashtra you have to apply for the registration in the Maharashtra itself. You cannot get it done in Delhi. so, in short, local reach only for registration, therefore choosing section 8 is a better option because it has reached all over India.

  • Legislation and Statue

    Section 8 company register under the Indian Companies Act, 1956 applicable all over India. For Trust registration the relevant state trust act or Indian Trust Act. For society registration 1882 Societies Registration Act, 1860. So, it's true that registering sections company or NGO is much easier like any private limited company.

  • Change in Registered office

    It's very difficult in case of bit trusts and societies but much easier in Section 8 company as eligibility reach is in all over India. The government is also preferring you to register your NGO at the national level in the form of section 8 company.
