Society Registration - Process, Procedure, Document Required, Fees, Eligibility, Duration

A Society is a group of people who come together to discuss, govern, and act cooperatively for a common good. Societies are typically formed to support charitable activities such as music, art, sports, culture, religion, education, and so on. The primary goal of Society registration is to provide legal status to Societies in India and to improve the Societies' overall legal situation.

In India, Society registration and operation are governed by the Societies Registration Act, 1860. A Society registration gives legal status to an entity or group of people working together not for profit but for the welfare of the general public to help the community.
