Planning Commission (Niti Ayog) has organised a research on the Registration and Administration of Charity Organisation (NGOs) in India.  In the research report the reviews and suggestions about the existing institutional framework, which administers charity law in India is described in detail. In the research report the suggestions and recommendations are provided to institutions to play effectively its role in nation building. In the research of Planning Commission it is suggested to make changes and make additions/rectifications at policy part for the registration and compliance of laws for NGOs and their administration.
The research is organised and reported on the basis of an all India study, makes suggestions on how the objectives can be met more effectively through reform in the existing institutional framework or through alternative legal and institutional arrangements.
As we observe in the present scenario it is clear that some of the NGOs who are working based on the finding and expectations given in the report who are proceeding further in socially well organised manner and in transparent way and other NGOs who are not aware they have to follow. May be such NGOs are aware or not aware of this report but their working parameters are according to the expectation and requirements as expected in social sector for social, volunteer and charity organisations.
This research report is not for the rest of the organisations those are just formed for certain undeclared purpose beyond legal and ethical criteria and after formation these are not working according to their declared objectives.

The research of Niti Ayog is still emerged as a report but still it is not implemented at Government Part to dissemination of the findings of the research.

NGO – Trust or Society

Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) or Non Profit Organisation (NPO) can be registered by many registration processes in India like Society, Company, Trust or any valid formation but status of the registered organisation is equal and equally recognised as NGO (Non Governmental Organisation /Non-Profit Organisation).

Registration process of NGO under Indian Trust Act, Society Registration Act, Company Registration Act or any other act/ law are different but the status of the registered organisation is equal as NGO. There is no difference in the status of NGO to get funding from Central/State Government Departments/ Ministries, Foreign funding agencies, Indian funding agencies, companies for Corporate social responsibility, individuals or any support agencies.
NGO registered through any process/ act can get registered under Income Tax Act, Foreign Currency Regulation Act (FCRA) or any kind of registration with any Government requirement. Every registered NGO are not eligible for the registration under various departments’ registration. The NGO must fulfill the registration process and parameters as required by the concerned department or authority. But the basic registration parameters do not matter that by which act the Voluntary Organisation is registered as NGO.

Just check here the comparison, difference and similarity between Trust, Society and Non Profit Company: Trust, Society and Company.
So now question is that how to register and under which act you have to register NGO? What kind of NGO is suitable to operate and manage? For answer and solution you can discuss with NGO Consultants at
