Formation of NGO

This book solely focuses on how NGOs were formed and what rules should one follow for starting an NGO. This book has two parts, the first discusses the rules and regulations of starting an NGO in detail. There is a comprehensive compilation of various acts and mandatory tax compliance requirements, that one has to follow for setting up an NGO in India. NGOs are a creation of an organization by individuals or groups of like-minded individuals. These people get together for a common goal, a benevolent idea that gets followed by a clear strategy and action plan. NGOs do not belong to any one person, nor do they earn profit. Their main income is from donations, membership fees, interest and dividends. Whatever the surplus, if any, they need to re-invest in welfare activities. Under no circumstances, they can distribute the Surplus amongst members.

The contribution of NGOs is enormous since they relieve the government of the duty of caring for the less fortunate. NGOs are aware of the community’s pulse. Their art has a distinct flavour of selflessness, commitment, and dedication. They pay off handsomely for society. A guideline for the preparation of a memorandum of an organization and framing of rules and regulations, largely known as a constitution of trust, is also provided in this book.
