The Indian Societies Registration Act was implemented in India in 1860, in accordance to this act charitable, literary and scientific societies must be properly registered. A society can be framed by 7 people who are kindred for any charitable, literary or scientific impetus. A memorandum of the same is to be filled thereafter in which the name of the society, its aims, objectives, name, occupation, and addresses of the governing members of the society must be stated. This in turn should be approved by the other constituting members of the society.
Documents for society registration
- A request letter to register the society under Society Registration Act 1860.
- A list of names stating the members of the governing body and the other constituting members.
- Set of rules and regulations framed for the smooth running of the association. Along with the Affidavits, stamp paper from the secretary of the society concerning the name of the society.
- A copy of address proof of all the members, a no objection certificate on stamp sheet and a documentary proof like electricity bill in respect of the place declared as the registered office of the society.
(Remember while naming the society: That the society's name should not be connected to the Indian Government at all and the name of the society should be unique i.e. it should not be identical to the name of the society which has already been registered. Moreover using the names of national leaders is strictly prohibited.)
