The type of registration you will need depends on the purpose you want to achieve. In India the registration process for NGO is available under various Acts and laws in different states.

Three ways you can create a NGO
1. Trust Registration
2. Society Registration
3. Section 8 Company Registration

The first initial essential step to start NGO is to determine the purpose for which you want to form the social organization. There must be a decided clear and concise statement that define and represent the clear mission of the charitable social organisation.

Trust registration procedure in India depends upon the type of trust. There are two types of trust:
• Public trust
• Private trust

Society registration in India takes place under The Societies Registration Act, 1860.

A Section 8 company is a company with charitable objects and Section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013 governs its registration. This is why it is known as section 8 company
