Section 8 Company Registration

We all are aware of the fact that India is a developing country and there are several sectors like health, education etc. which still need attention. Unfortunately, the central government cannot address each issue at grass root level. This creates a need for an organization which can work on behalf of the government or helps them in improving the conditions of our society. 

Such organizations are termed as the non-government organization. Such organizations need legal sanctity and therefore they are registered under Section 8 of the Companies Act 2013. The profits generated by these organizations can only be used to promote works mentioned under the various clauses of this Act like- Section 8(1)(b) etc. The rules and regulations mentioned in this Act are regulated and managed by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs.
