About Trust Registration
Trust Registration: Public Trust is the most convenient way of starting a non-governmental organization or NGO. A trust functions on the objective of eradicating poverty, providing education to the underprivileged and offering medical relief apart from the generalized aim of promoting arts, science and literature. It is to be noted that trusts are irrevocable which means they cannot be amended or terminated without the permission of the court. Semantic Taxgen helps in providing you with the trust registration certificate with a few documents like a deed of trust, rental agreement, etc.
In India, there are no specific laws to govern the public trust, however, some states like Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu have their own public trust Act.

There is a general notion that trust need not have to pay tax as they work towards the welfare of the public at large. But this is not true. A trust, like any other legal entity, is liable to pay tax. In order to be exempted from tax, trust is required to obtain certification for the said exemptions such as Section 12 A, 80G etc. from the Income Tax authorities.
