NGO registration in India

Education, employment, environment, medical etc are considered to be the pillars of development for any developing country and are expected to be provided by the Government. However, when these are not adequately taken care of by them, a Non-Government Organization (NGO) comes into the picture. NGOs generally carry out the same task in an effective manner without any profit motive.

What Is Section 8 NGO?

“A section 8 NGO is a body corporate just like a private limited company but unlike a private limited company, it does not work for profit motive.”

Section 8 company is formed for a particular set of objectives which can be the promotion of sports, education, research, social welfare, protection of the environment etc. Section 8 company is formed under the ministry of corporate affairs (MCA) which is a central government body. Section 8 company may be incorporated as a company limited by shares or by Guarantee (with or without share capital). Company limited by guarantee means that there will be no share capital but each shareholder will contribute a nominal amount in case the company is wound up or closed.

In INDIA NGOs can be registered under the following heads –

  • Societies registered under section 20 of the Societies Registration Act 1860.

  • Trusts formed under the Indian Trusts Act 1882.

  • Section 8 company under companies act 2013.

Who Can Form A Section 8 NGO in India?

  • Any two individuals or an individual and a partnership firm or any such combination can form section 8 company.
    The objective of such section 8 company should be for the promotion of commerce, art, science, sports, education, research, social welfare, religion, charity, protection of environment or any such other object”, provided it “intends to apply its profits, if any, or other income in promoting its objects” and “intends to prohibit the payment of any dividend to its members.

    The text of the Section 8 provision in the 2013 Companies Act reads:

    COMPANIES ACT, 2013, Section 8 Formation of companies with charitable objects, etc.:

    Where it is proved to the satisfaction of the Central Government that a person or an association of persons proposed to be registered under this Act as a limited company:

  • has in its objects the promotion of commerce, art, science, sports, education, research, social welfare, religion, charity, protection of environment or any such other object

  • intends to apply its profits, if any, or other income in promoting its objects; and

  • intends to prohibit the payment of any dividend to its members, the Central Government may, issue license in such manner, and on such conditions as it deems fit, allow that person or association of persons to register as a limited company under this section without the addition to its name of the word "Limited", or as the case may be, the words "Private Limited", and thereupon the Registrar shall, on the application, in the prescribed form, register such person or association of persons as a company under this section.

  • The company registered under this section shall enjoy all the privileges and be subject to all the obligations of limited companies.
