Send a Query for Society Registration in India

A society may be defined as a company or an association of persons united together by mutual consent to deliberate, determine and act jointly for same common purpose. Minimum seven persons, eligible to enter into a contract, can form society. When an NGO is constituted as a society, it is required to be registered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860.

The chief advantage of forming a society are that it gives a corporate appearance to the organization, and provides greater flexibility as it is easier to amend the memorandum and bye laws of the society than in case of trust, terms of which are strictly manifested in the trust deed.


Formation of a society requires more procedural formalities than in case of a trust. A Society for its inception requires:-

I. Memorandum of Association, and

II. Rules and Regulations

For the purpose of registration, following documents are required to be filed with the registrar of Societies:

  1. Covering letter requesting for registration stating in the body of the letter various documents annexed to it. The letter is to be signed by all the subscribers to the memorandum or by a person duly authorised by all of them to sign on their behalf.
  2. Memorandum of Association, in duplicate neatly typed and pages serially numbered.
  3. Rules and Regulations/Bye-Laws, in duplicate, certified by at least three members of the governing body.
  4. An affidavit of the president/Secretary of the society, on a non-judicial stamp paper of prescribed value, stating the relationship between the subscribers, duly attested by an oath commissioner, notary public or 1st class magistrate.
  5. Documentary proof such as house tax receipt, rent receipt in respect of premises shown as registered office of the society or no objection certificate from the landlord of the premises.
