Society registration in India refers to the process of officially registering a society or association with the Registrar of Societies in a particular state. A registered society is recognized as a separate legal entity and is governed by the provisions of the Societies Registration Act, 1860 and the relevant state societies registration acts.

Societies are usually formed for literary, scientific, or charitable purposes and are usually registered by a group of individuals who come together to pursue a common goal. The society may be registered as a non-profit organization and is required to comply with the provisions of the relevant laws and regulations.

The registration of a society provides several benefits, including the ability to hold property in the society's name, enter into contracts, and receive donations and grants. It also ensures that the society's activities are governed by a set of rules and regulations, and that the society is subject to government oversight and accountability.


Documents Required

Documents required to register a society in India

  • Memorandum of Association (MOA) including the name, objectives, and rules of the society.

  • Rules and Regulations (BYLAWS) of the society.

  • A list of at least 7 members who will be the founding members of the society, along with their addresses.

  • Identity proof of the members, such as PAN card, Voter ID card, or Aadhaar card.

  • Proof of address of the society, such as a rental agreement or utility bill.

Features of society registration:

  • Legal recognition: A registered society is considered a legal entity and has the power to sue or be sued, own property, and enter into contracts in its own name.

  • Credibility: A registered society has a greater level of credibility in the eyes of the public and potential donors.

  • Tax benefits: Registered societies are eligible for tax exemptions under various provisions of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

  • Access to government funding: Registered societies may be eligible for government grants and other forms of financial support.

  • Better governance: Registering a society ensures that it is governed by a set of rules and regulations, which helps to maintain transparency and accountability in its operations.

  • Longevity: A registered society has a longer lifespan compared to an unregistered society, as it is governed by the provisions of the Societies Registration Act, 1860 and can continue to exist even if its members change over time.

  • Better protection of assets: Registering a society helps to ensure that its assets are protected and can only be used for the purposes for which the society was established.
