Trust Registration

Get trusted

  • Adopt the convenient method for charity.

Most convenient way of starting a non-governmental organization or NGO. A trust functions on the objective of eradicating poverty, providing education to the underprivileged and offering medical relief apart from the generalized aim of promoting arts, science and literature. trusts are irrevocable which means they cannot be amended or terminated without the permission of the court. The Indian Trusts Act, 1882 defines trust as being a legal obligation annexed to the ownership of property and arising out of a confidence reposed in the trustee by the settlor, for the benefit of the beneficiaries as identified by the settlor including/excluding the settlor himself. The person who declares the confidence is called the “author of the trust”; the person who accepts the confidence is called the “trustee”. The person for whose benefit the confidence is accepted is called the “beneficiary” and the subject matter of the trust is called “trust property”; the “beneficial interest” or “interest” of the beneficiary is the right against the trustee as owner of the trust property; and the instrument, if any, by which the trust is declared is called the “instrument of trust”. The property in case of a trust is not transferred directly to the transferee but is put in control of the trustee for the benefit of the transferee. The trustee, depending upon the nature of the trust, either transfers the property or its earnings to the transferee at the happening of certain events or applies the property and /or its gains for the benefit of such a transferee.
