CREATION AND REGISTRATION
A society is created with a certain goal/objective. The charter of the society also called the Memorandum of Association lays down these objects and purposes apart from host of details like address of operation, names and addresses of members of the governing body, details pertaining to its directors, roles played by key officials, names of person subscribing to the memorandum etc.. While as the rules and regulations of the society are framed to guide the members of the governing body to administer and regulate the functioning of the society. Registration with the Registrar of society gives the society a status of an separate legal entity and empowers it enter into any contracts/ own any property as well as sue or be sued by any third party. The property normally remains the ownership of the governing body of the society. Registration also renders the society eligible to receive all benefits under the Income Tax Act 1960 using which the society can apply for FCRA certificates, Sec 35 AC, 80GG, 80GGA Certificates etc. An unregistered society though is not recognized as a separate legal entity and the consequent advantages of registration therefore cannot be enjoyed by it.
