Martyrdom Day | March 23 – Shaheed Bhagat Singh

shaheedi-diwas-bdOn the night of March 23, 1931, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Raj Guru’s patriotism was hanged by the words of the crime. It is said that the death penalty was fixed on the morning of March 24, but the fear of some big public outcry was frightened by the British government on the night of March 23, the lifelines of these revolutionaries were eliminated. In the darkness of the night, their funeral was also done on the banks of the Sutlej.

Bhagat Singh was sentenced to death in the Lahore conspiracy case, and at the age of 24, only on the night of 23 March 1931, he laughed and kissed the hanging of the hanging of ‘Inqlab Zidabad’.

Bhagat Singh also became a source of inspiration for the youth. They were the leader of country’s martyrs. (India-Darshan compilation)

No longer 100% deduction allowed for NGO’s

Image result for ngo's in indiaDonations made to hundreds of projects carried out by NGOs across the country will no longer be eligible for a 100% income tax (I-T) deduction in the hands of the donor from April 1. While tax savings are not the main purpose, if donations are made in March towards eligible projects, then donors comprising salaried employees could reap an I-T benefit.

At present, donations made for specific projects run by NGOs that have been certified under section 35AC entitle the donor to a 100% I-T deduction under section 80GGA in respect of the donated amount.

However, section 35AC has a sunset clause which expires this March. Section 80GGA is not as widely known as section 80G, which permits a 100% I-T deduction in respect of certain donations (such as PM’s National Relief Fund) and a 50% I-T deduction in most other cases.

Image result for ngo's in india“Taxpayers who do not earn income under the head `profits and gains of business and profession’, such as salaried employees, can claim the benefit of section 80GGA. While the employer cannot consider the donations made, while computing tax to be deducted at source against salary income, the employee can claim the benefit of the same in his I-T return and claim an I-T refund, if applicable,“ says Pradeep Mahtani, director, HelpYourNGO Foundation. A chartered accountant says, “In fact, if there has been a short deduction of tax at source and advance tax has not been paid by the salaried employee, by making donations eligible for I-T deduction up to March 31, the salaried taxpayer could mitigate his I-T penalty . Donors should ensure that they get the appropriate receipt.”

Notifications are issued by the finance ministry from time to time, certifying the projects that are eligible under section 35AC, the period of eligibility and also the total cost of the eligible project. For instance, as regards NGOs registered in Ma harashtra, these include projects by Magic Bus (skill development and livelihood programme), Association of Palliative Care (for a palliative care centre), Foundation of Promotion for Sports and Games (Olympic Gold Quest project) and Mesco (educational scholarships).

How NGO’s Generate Funds 4 Working??

Hello everyone; Trust all of you doing great work. Everyone knows what is “NGO’s” and How it works but big question always arise in mind that how NGO’s generate funds from society?  I hope this write-up may help you to generate funds from market. Basically you have three ways to generate funds for your NGO’s. Details are:-

  1. Donation from general public.
  2. Grant from Central Government and State Government.
  3. Provide paid services to society.

Donation

Image result for donationThe process of running NGO is highly supported by taking donations on different levels. Public or private sectors are included in taking donations. Donation can be of any kind like service providing for some cause on which an NGO is working or giving incentives to the members of NGOs for working on a specific project. But mostly all the successful and renowned NGOs keep the donation to an average extent for keeping themselves unaccountable of spending public money for different causes.

Grants

Image result for donationNGO’s have to get support, funding, financial help and donation to get work, execute, implement and accomplishment the aims, objects, aspirations, ambitions, desires, causes and targets they desire to fulfill and they have decided, they are working on and they have to achieve them. To get funding and other support, NGO has to submit project proposals in pre-formated certain patterns and according to requirement and guidelines of donor agency, support groups and funding agency or Government Ministry/Department. Projects for funding are submitted in a such a frame work that explain the issues, needs and requirements of the plan, why the need of fund and support is and the way how the NGO and beneficiaries will implement it.

Service Providing

By providing paid services, NGO’s can earn funds. Some NGOs function for a cause to provide basic service to public deprived of the basic facilities, for example there are many areas whose locals are not provided with some of the necessary services due to lack of management and false distribution of assets. NGOs work for them and earn money for this cause. The new self startups by an NGO get them to earn a huge money by donors and donators. Different new plans for welfare process and implementing strategies are proposed by NGOs and if the attract the area of interest of the donors, the get them earn a good money for this purpose.
