Society Registration in India

A company is an organization of several individuals who join a collective agreement to volunteer, manage, and act together for a common purpose. Companies are generally registered to promote charitable activities such as sports, music, culture, religion, arts, education, etc.

The registration of companies under the Companies Registration Act of India prescribes certain procedures for the registration and management of companies. This law was enacted with the aim of improving the legal provisions of social registration for the promotion of literature, art, science or the dissemination of awareness for liberal purposes. The Social Registration Act, 1860 has been adopted by many state governments without or with additional amendments.
