        Overview - Overview of NGO Registration

        An NGO is an organisation that works for charitable purposes. They promote arts, science, sports, education, research, social welfare, religion, charity, etc. It is common for NGOs in India to be registered under the Trust Act, Society Registration Act, or Companies Act.

        Following the Companies Act 2013, the NGO is registered as a Section 8 Company. All companies registered under this act are not-for-profit and charitable trusts. An NGO differs from a trust or society only in that it is registered with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA).
