Yes, it is possible to convert a Trust into Section 25 company. 
I think the date of formation of NGO will remain the same but it will be considered as Company from the date on which it is converted into Company.

Yes, it's possible to convert a Trust into Section 8 company. A company is appertained to as Section 8 Company when it registered as aNon-Profit Organization (NPO) i.e. when it has motive of promoting trades, commerce, education, charity, protection of terrain, sports, wisdom, exploration, social weal, religion and intends to use its gains (if any) or other income for promoting these objects.
