How to Check Online Status of Society Registration?

There are two primary methods to ascertain the online registration status of a society

Using the Registrar of Societies (ROS) website

The government agency in charge of registering societies in India is the ROS. There are unique ROS for every state and union territory. You can go to the website of the ROS for your state or union territory to verify the online status of society registration.

You will be required to enter the society's name and registration number on the website. You will be able to view the status of the society registration after you have submitted this information.

Through a website owned by a third party

Numerous other websites provide services to verify the online status of a society's registration. Usually, these websites charge for the services they provide.

You will be required to enter the registration number and name of the society in order to access a third-party website. The website will retrieve the status of the society registration from the ROS website once you have submitted this information.

Process of Society Registration in India

The process of registration of society in India is mentioned below

Step 1: Documentation

In India, a society cannot be registered until all Documentwork has been submitted. We always advise arranging all Document works before starting the process of forming and registering your society, as this will minimize the likelihood of your application being rejected. This is because incomplete or inaccurate paper works can result in the rejection of the whole application for Society Registration.

Step 2: Choose a distinctive name

A society must have a name that is both unique and conveys the reason it was established. Make sure your society's name is unique and does not already belong to another organization, registered or applied trademark, or any other kind of non-governmental organization. A selected name that is similar to the already registered trademark or applied for will result in the infringement of the IP rights of the trademark owner, while a name that is exactly the same as the name of an already-existing Society will be deemed invalid for naming your Society.

Step 3: Draft Memorandum of Association and Rules of Society

The Memorandum and the Rules of the Society are two of the most crucial papers that form the basis of any society. The primary purpose of the society is outlined in the Memorandum of the Society; however, the rules are intended to govern the administration of the society's internal operations, including the quorum of meetings and the duties and authority of the official positions of treasurer, secretary, and president.

Step 4: Submitting Application for Society Registration

Following the drafting of the Society's bylaws and articles of association, an application is sent to the Society's Registrar, together with the signed by laws, Regulations, Declarations of Affidavit, and KYC paperwork from Society officers and members. Since the state government appoints the Registrar of Society, various states in India levy varying fees for registration of society. The state governments are also responsible for maintaining the registry that has the names of the organizations. You may monitor the application's status on the MCA's official website after submitting it and the necessary supporting paper works.

Step 5: Certificate of Society Registration

The Certificate of Registration is issued to society upon completion of the registration process. The Registrar's official confirmation that the Society has been registered is contained in the Certificate of Registration. The Indian society registration procedure typically takes around a month to finish.

Tax Exemption for Societies

There's a common misconception that people don't need to pay taxes as society looks out for everyone's welfare. It isn't like that. A society has to pay taxes, just like any other legal business. To avoid paying taxes, a society must get a certificate of completion from the income tax officials for each applicable exclusion, such as Section 12 A, 80G, etc.

Renewal of Society Registration

Depending on the nation or state where the society is registered, there may be differences in the procedure for online registration renewal. Nonetheless, these are the general actions to take

  • Make sure you verify the renewal deadline before beginning the procedure. The majority of societies must renew their registration every year or every two years.
  • Collect all the required paperwork, including the annual general meeting minutes, the bylaws, and the original registration certificate. It can also be necessary to compile a list of the current office holders.
  • You can renew your registration of society using the online registration portal provided by the majority of government agencies.
  • Using the credentials from your society, log into the portal.
  • Give all the necessary information, such as your name, registration number, and office details.
  • Send all the Documents in the format and size specified.
  • You can use the online payment methods on the portal to pay the renewal charge.
  • Examine the application, then send it.
  • On the official website, you may check the status of your application at any moment online.
  • In order to prevent any last-minute problems or delays, it is usually suggested that the renewal procedure begin well in advance of the deadline.

Rules and Regulations of the Society

The following details must be included in the Society's Rules and Regulations when they are drafted.

  • Guidelines and obligations that will govern the Society's endeavours and ensure the day-to-day operations.
  • Guidelines for enrolling in the Society or becoming a member.
  • Guidelines on how the periodic meeting should be run.
  • Information for auditors.
  • Arbitration formats for settling conflicts amongst members of the Society.
  • Guidelines for Dissolving Society.
  • Note that the proposed rules and regulations may be changed at any moment with the consent of important Society leaders and members.
  • The Registrar of Societies must receive two copies of all the aforementioned Documents together with the required fees. After receiving an application of this kind, the registrar must sign the first copy in order to accept it and return it, saving the second copy for approval.
  • The certificate of incorporation will be granted by the registration and given a registration number after a proper review of the supporting papers.

Post Registration Society Compliance

A trust shall, post-registration, shall address the following legalities

  • Secure PAN card
  • Open a bank account with designated bank
  • Bookkeeping and Accounts
  • Annual Income T filings
  • GST registration, if applicable
  • Professional tax registration, if applicable

Why Society Registration is important?

Due to its many advantages and legal relevance in supporting the functioning and responsibility of different social, cultural, nonprofit, and philanthropic organizations within a society, society registration is very significant. Formally establishing a society as a legal body, usually under government-issued rules or regulations, is the act of registering the society.

First of all, a society's registration gives it identification and legal validity. It gives the society the capacity to operate as an independent legal body apart from its members, giving it the power to hold property, make agreements, file lawsuits, and defend legal actions under its own name. By guaranteeing legal protection and transparency in its activities, this recognition protects the interests of the society and its members.

Moreover, society registration promotes sustainability and stability among organizations. Clearly defined regulations, governance frameworks, and processes help registered societies effectively handle internal affairs, settle conflicts, and make long-term sustainability plans. This consistency draws in volunteers, sponsors, and members who feel more comfortable giving to a well-run, law-abiding organization.

Thus, to formally establish the existence of social, cultural, or non-profit organizations, society registration is essential. It provides identification and legal recognition while also advancing openness, legitimacy, benefit access, and organizational stability. In the end, it makes it possible for registered organizations to function effectively, achieve their goals, and have a significant influence on their local communities.
