NGO stands for non governmental organosation.

all ngos are a charitable trust/societies/ sect 25 companies.

But ngos are to registered with Governments and to get approval from governments since they get funds from govt.

all ngos are either a society, sect 25 comp or a public trust but all societies are not NGOs.

Once you have decided to start an NGO  First of all you have to go the office of Charity Commissioner/Asst charity Commissioner's office and you have to prepare by laws according to the performa

The procedure is as follows:

You have to conduct meeting of the proposed NGO. In the meeting you have to

mention aim, objective, president, vice president, treasurer, advisor,

member etc. You have to pass the resolution of forming NGO and all member

must sign on it with date and proposed name of NGO

Therefter you have to go to Charity Commissioner/Asst charity commissioner's

office and buy the form (it cost 5 or 10 RS)

Thereafter according to the performa you have to complete following


1) power of attorney in the name of president/secretary

I wnated to modify my earlier opinion since at one point i ma wrong. NGOs are not compulsorily required to get registered with the Government ministries if they are not willing to get government grants.

you may go through the following govt. website :


The Planning Commission of India invites all Voluntary Organizations (VOs)/ Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to Sign Up on this system,which has been developed in consultation with the below mentioned Ministries/Departments/Government Bodies to facilitate VOs / NGOs during their interaction with the Government in connection with requests for Government Grants under various schemes of the below mentioned Ministries/ Departments/ Government Bodies, in the first phase.

Participating Ministries/Departments/Government Bodies:

All VOs / NGOs, are requested to Sign Up (one time) with the Portal to help create a data base of existing VOs / NGOs and to access information on various schemes of the participating Ministries/ Departments/ Government Bodies open for grants. Later you will also be able to apply online for government grants to the participating Ministries/Departments/Government Bodies and track the status of your applications through this system.

Fundraising is a process. Startups need to fund themselves through a series of investments or capital raisings. As the business grows, its capital requirements grow as well. Each round of funding serves as a stepping stone to the next round or stage of development.
