Society Registration

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.

For a society registration, the following papers are essential:

The name of the society.

Address proof of the office.

Identity proof of all the nine members which can be:

Driving License

Copy of Passport

Voter ID

Aadhaar card

Two copies of the Memorandum of Association and By-laws of the society.

Note: Once the payment for the registration is done, it takes about 8 to 10 days for drafting the MoA and By-laws of the Society. Thereafter it takes 25to 30 days for the Society to be registered.
