The NGO DARPAN was earlier maintained by erstwhile Planning Commission, which has been replaced by the NITI Aayog w.e.f. 1st January, 2015. The Portal, therefore, is being maintained at present under the aegis of NITI Aayog. NITI Aayog invites all Voluntary Organizations (VOs)/ Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to Sign Up on the Portal.

VOs/NGOs play a major role in the development of the nation by supplementing the efforts of the Government. This portal enables VOs/NGOs to enrol centrally and thus facilitates creation of a repository of information about VOs/NGOs, Sector/State wise. The Portal facilitates VOs/NGOs to obtain a system generated Unique ID, as and when signed. The Unique ID is mandatory to apply for grants under various schemes of Ministries/ Departments/ Governments Bodies.

The NGO-DARPAN lists the number of VOs/NGOs in India based on self-declared information. This does not imply that organizations are endorsed or recommended by the NITI Aayog / MeitY-NIC or by the concerned Ministries/Departments/Government Bodies. NITI Aayog / MeitY-NIC does not guarantee that the information contained on the portal is complete and correct and shall not be liable whatsoever for any damages incurred as a result of its use.
