NGO Darpan is usually registered within 1 week from the date of submission of documents.

NGO Registration/Revalidation Under Section 80G and Section 12A

NGOs primarily rely on donations to support their functioning. To make these funds exempt from taxation, NGOs are to register under Section 80G and Section 12A of the Income Tax Act. This cannot be obtained without Darpan registration.

80G registration helps you receive donations and enables you to issue exemption certificates to those who have contributed to your NGO. Whereas, 12A registration exempts your NGO's excess income over expenditure from income tax purview.

Moreover, recent changes have mandated that all the NGOs who have already registered under these 2 sections get re-validated under sections 80G and 12A to continue enjoying those tax benefits.

Time Taken

The overall process may take up to three months, where the application shall be made within 1 week from the date of submission of documents. The registration has to be revalidated every 5 years. The re-application has to be made six months before the date of expiry of the registration.

Documents Required

  • Copy of the registration certificate as a PDF or JPG
  • Pan Card of NGO
  • PAN and Aadhaar card copies of 3 members in the executive committee
  • Name of NGO/VO
  • NGO address
  • Registration number
  • Date of registration
  • Details of three members who are on the executive committee
  • Details about funding from the government and chief area of working.
