NGO Registration Online – Overview

An NGO is a non-governmental organisation that works to improve society at large through philanthropic endeavours. Depending on the activity you want to pursue, you can start it as a Trust, a Society, or a Non-Profit Company [Section 8 Company].

All non-profit organisations, including Trust, Societies, and Section 8 Companies, are collectively referred to as NGOs in India. Such non-profit organisations are also known as ‘Sangathan’, ‘Sangh’, and ‘Sangam.’ All non-profit NGOs are eligible for an income tax exemption.

These are occasionally mistaken with non-profitable businesses, which denotes a conventional company that is not turning a profit. Spinach Laws will assist you in making the best decision and will walk you through the full NGO company registration procedure.

Why register an NGO in India?

In an unregistered firm, the assets can be received under anyone’s name and may be used for their own profit.
  • An organization that is registered as an NGO reinforces the ethical, social and legal norms of our society.
  • The basic requirement for running an NGO is to have a bank account under its name. In order to open an account, it is mandatory to be registered as a Trust, Society or Section 8 Company.

Registration of NGO in India


One of the ways in which an NGO can be registered is Trust or more commonly called Charitable trust. Trust is a legal entity created by the “trustor” or “settlor” who transfers the assets to the second party or “trustee” for the benefit of the third party or “beneficiary”. Trusts are formed to help and support the deprived sections of the society. Any group of individuals can register a trust and in India as such there are no specific laws to govern the public trust, however, some states like Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu have their own Public Trust Act


A society is an entity that can be created by a group of individuals united in their cause for promoting science, arts, literature, social welfare and useful information. In addition, societies work for creating military orphan funds, maintaining public museum and libraries.

Societies are governed by the Societies Registration Act, 1860. They must be registered with the respective state Registrar of Societies to be eligible for tax exemption.

Section 8 Companies

A Section 8 Company is similar to a trust and society. The objectives of a Section 8 Companies are to promote arts, science, commerce, sports, social welfare, religion, charity and environmental protection. They are registered under the Companies Act, 2013 for charitable purpose. They have better credibility among government bodies, donors and other stakeholders.
