As per the proposed amendment in Income tax in the Finance Bill 2020 a new section 12A(1)(ac) will be introduced which will compel existing Charitable / Religious Institutions to Re-register themselves with the Income Tax Department w.e .f. 1.06.2020. It will also be mandatory to renew the registration and provide all justifications every five (5) years. The application for re obtaining the registration / approval will have to be given at least 6 months prior to the expiry of the registration / approval.

There are adequate checks & balances in the existing provisions of Income Tax Act & therefore there is no reason for introducing a new section for Re- Registration of existing charitable & religious institutions.

Such procedure of Re-registration every 5 years under section 12A(1)(ac) and the corresponding amendment in section 10(23) will either hamper or bring a halt to religious & charitable/philanthropic activities and will affect Schools , Hospitals, Universities, Educational Institutions , Temples , Dharamshalas, Orphanages etc. in the country instead of getting encouragement from the authorities.

All Charitable/Philanthropic & Religious Institutions must come under one roof and oppose this amendment as it is unnecessary & interfering in its' very nature.


A platform has been created for all likeminded Trusts and institutions to come together and submit their protestations to this unfair law to the Hon. Finance Minister. You are requested to fill a form on the following link and confirm your stand:https://forms.gle/X7k38M6TafxPAT869

You can watch the  public meeting held at Indian Merchants Chambers (Babubhai Chinai Committee Room 2nd floor) ( Churchgate station, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400020 ) on 11th March 2020  via the following link. https://youtu.be/IPcYyIjvh8A

 

Thanking you.
