Trust Registration in India

1. Before you register your trust you will need to decide the following:

a) Name of the trust

b) Address of the trust

c) Objects of the trust(charitable or Religious)

d) One settler of the trust

e) Two trustees of the trust

f) Property of the trust-movable or immovable property (normally a small amount of cash/cheque is given to be the initial property of the trust, in order to save on the stamp duty).

2. Prepare a Trust Deed on stamp paper of the requisite value (8% of the
value of property of the trust in Delhi. The rate varies from state to state)

3. Requirement for registration of Trust Deed with the Local Registrar under
the Indian Trusts Act, 1882:

e) Signature of settler on all the pages of the Trust Deed

f) Witness by two persons on the Trust Deed.

4. Go to the local registrar & submit the Trust Deed, along with one
Photocopy, for registration. The photocopy of the Deed should also
contain the signature of settler on all the pages. At the time of registration,
the settler & two witnesses are required to be personally present,
alongwith their identity proof in the original.

5. The Registrar retains the photocopy & returns the original registered copy
of the Trust Deed.

    what’s the procedure to change trust address? Can a trust created on a property situated in Delhi, registered in sub-registrar in Delhi but have registerred address in Gurgaon?
    The trust concerned is a charitabler trust registered in Delhi but has its registered address in Gurgaon and declined the FCRA registration on the same ground.
    Please suggest the measures to get FCRA registration..
