NCSD is part of NARI, which is a non-profit NGO and donations are most welcome. NARI has a tax exempt status under Section 35(1)(ii) of the Income Tax Act, which results in contributions and donations to the Institute being 100-175% tax deductible (100% for individuals and 175% for companies). NARI is also registered under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act and hence can accept foreign donations.
We need funds for infrastructure like computers, high speed internet, books, furniture, etc.
This will help us continue our program effectively. Donations from Indian donors can be send as a cheque in the name of the Institute and addressed to the President. Please write clearly whether the donation is for corpus or for specific purpose.
Foreign donations can be made by directly depositing the money in our FCRA account as follows:
