There are three legal procedures for registering an NGO in India, which are Trust, Society, and Section 8 Companies. Trusts are established to assist and support the most vulnerable members of society.

There are no particular regulations in India to manage public trusts; although, certain states, such as Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, have their Public Trust Act.

A group of people or individuals who share common goals for advancing science, social welfare, literature, art, knowledge, etc. can form society. Furthermore, groups seek to preserve public museums and libraries as well as to establish military orphan funds.

Section 8 companies are registered for charitable purposes under the Companies Act 2013.

Section 8 companies are not different from society and trust. However, it is registered to promote businesses, protection of the environment, education, charity, etc., and willing to use its profit to promote these social goods.
