An overview of NGO registration in Ladakh

An NGO is a non-governmental organisation. NGOs are not-for-profit organisations, and they work with the government's involvement. The main goal of an NGO is to deal with society's charitable and social purposes; therefore, NGOs must use all of their profit to further their objectives instead of distributing it among the partners. As per the law, any individual(s) can incorporate an NGO to promote commerce, art, science, sports, education, research, social welfare, religion, charity, and protection of the environment. By registering an NGO, you can fulfil your dream of working for the advancement and improvement of society. So before we start talking about registering an NGO, let us first understand the meaning of an NGO, how it operates in Ladakh and the criteria for registering an NGO.

Why is NGO registration required in Ladakh?

Mentioned below are some of the benefits of NGO registration in Ladakh:

  • The range of both financial and human resources is expanded. The NGO will benefit because more volunteers will step forward.
  • An organisation registered as an NGO reinforces our society's ethical, social and legal norms.
  • A business with an NGO registration offers its members limited liability protection. All members' roles and responsibilities are restricted only to a certain extent of the capital or the fund contributed.
  • The NGO Registration grants the organisation a unique legal standing and tax exemptions, allowing subscribers, donors, and creditors to claim a tax deduction for their contributions. It is not only exempt from taxes but also from a number of annual compliances. NGOs in Ladakh receives rebate in income tax under Section 12A and 80G. NGOs with 80G certification attract more donors to donate funds to the organisation.
  • It is optional to have a minimum share capital to operate independently. NGOs may receive direct funding from donations given to them. This indicates that NGOs can operate independently without a higher share capital.
  • After your business is registered, nobody else in India is allowed to use the same name or one that sounds similar to it. This provides the advantage of preventing illegal usage of your company's name and image.
