In India, trust registration is the process of registering a trust with the Registrar of Societies, Charity Commissioner, or other government authorities, as applicable, in accordance with the provisions of the Indian Trusts Act, 1882 and relevant state laws. This process is usually necessary to establish the legal existence of a trust, and to obtain recognition for tax exemptions and other benefits. The information required for trust registration in India typically includes details about the trust's objectives, the names and addresses of the trustees, the trust's rules and regulations, and information about the trust's property and assets. The process of trust registration in India may involve submitting an application, along with supporting documents, to the relevant government authorities.

Features of trust registration:

  • Tax benefits: Registered trusts are eligible for tax exemptions under the Income Tax Act, 1961, which can help to reduce the financial burden on the trust.

  • Protects trust property: Registering a trust helps to protect its property and assets, as it provides evidence of ownership and control.

  • Increases accountability: Registering a trust makes its activities more transparent, which helps to increase accountability and improve public trust in the organization.

  • Improved governance: Trust registration helps to improve the governance of the trust, as it requires the trust to have a clear set of rules and regulations, and to maintain proper records.
