NGO are non-profit making agencies that are constituted with a vision by a group of likeminded people, closer and accessible to the target groups, committed towards socio-economic development and sustainable growth, quicker in decision making, timely in action and facilitating the people towards self-reliance ensuring their fullest participation in the integrated development process.

A Non Profit Organization can be registered in India as a Society, under the Registrar of Societies (Societies Registration Act, 1860) or as a Trust by making a Trust deed (Public Charitable Trust Act). A third option is registration as a section-25 Company under the Companies Act, 1956.

Whether a trust, society or section-25 company, the Income Tax Act, 1961 gives all categories equal treatment, in terms of exempting their income and granting 80G certificates, whereby donors to non-profit organizations may claim a rebate against donations made. Foreign contributions to non-profits are governed by FC(R)A regulations and the Home Ministry. For an organization to be termed as Charity it requires Income tax clearances under 12 A Clause of Income Tax Act.
