35AC Registration - A fundraising tool for NGOs

Section 35 AC of the Income Tax Act, 1961, is one of the key provision which is relevant for

raising funds and resources for NGO’s if understood and used effectively.

The objective of Section 35 AC is to encourage business organizations to contribute more in

social and economic welfare and upliftment of general public. With the increased emphasis on

the corporate social responsibility in the corporate sector and ostentatious display of charity by

people like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, the contribution in the monetary term by the corporate

sector in India towards socially relevant project cannot be undermined.

NGO’s involved in eligible projects notified by the Central Government for promoting the social

and economic welfare can raise resources for eligible project from corporate sector and fulfil

their objective of development.

Corporates simultaneously can fulfil their corporate social responsibility aspect of the business

by contributing towards the eligible projects and gain by availing deduction under Section 35

AC. Thus Section 35 AC can be used as an effective tool of fund raising by the NGO’s. It can

also lead to a mutually beneficial relationship between NGOs and the Corporate Sector.


Section 35 AC provides that where a person or company incurs any expenditure by way of

payments of any sum to :

 A public sector company or;

 A local authority or;

 To an association or institution approved by the National Committee

For carrying out any eligible project or scheme for promoting the social and economic welfare of

the public as the Central Government may specify, then the amount so paid shall be allowed as

deduction from the business income of the assessee/contributor of such amount. In view of
