Digital Signature

Digital Signature Certificate

 

Digital Signature is an electronic format of your physical signature, is required to sign e-forms like filing income-tax returns, company incorporation, Annual return filings, and e-tender filing, etc.

Digital signatures, as the name suggest, are an electronic equivalent of physical signatures, as they verify the identity of the sender of an electronic document. Such signatures are verified by a Certifying Authority, which also provides the sign holder with both a private key (used by the holder to encrypt their signature onto a document) and a public key (used by the receiver to verify the signature of the holder on an electronic document).  Nowadays, Digital signatures are not used only to verify communications between individuals, but also to carry out online transactions such as Income Tax e-Filing, Company Incorporation, etc. Digital Signatures come in the form of a USB E-Token, wherein the Digital Signature Certificate is stored in a USB Drive and can be accessed through a computer to sign documents electronically. Think of the USB e-Token as the digital equivalent of a rubber stamp – connect it to a computer, sign the document in question, and you’re done! The DSC is a certificate issued by a Certifying Authority which also generates the public and private key for your Digital Signature.

 

With e-Filing becoming mandatory in increased spheres, Digital Signatures have become more pervasive in the market, out of the sheer necessity of having one. Register for our service to avoid the hassle, yet reap the ease of a digital signature!

NGO Registration

NGO Registration

 

NGO Stands for Non-Governmental Organization, is an organization that works for charitable, non-profit and for social welfare purposes.

NGOs can be registered in India under the following laws:

  1. Trust under the Indian Trust Act, 1882

  2. Society under Societies Registration Act, 1860

  3. Section-8 Company under Companies Act, 2013.

Matters of welfares had long been the domain of state players, with little room for private entities to take the helm.  However, recently, there has been a rapid increase in the involvement of Non-Governmental Organizations (hereinafter “NGOs”) in a playroom that till now represented sovereign interests. In India, these private entities generally exist in one of the following three legal forms - that of trusts, of societies, or in the form of Companies incorporated under Section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013. NGOs are champions of causes, whether social or economic.

NGOs are usually expected to function without profit (notably, Section 8 companies have prohibitions from paying out dividends, and are expected to reinvest profits back into the promotion of the objects). However, NGOs are generally offered various exemptions when it comes to taxation as an NGO basically represents an active civil society member.

 

eStartIndia is the best legal and business services platform for services relating to NGO registration in India, offering a variety of registration services like Trade License registration, ISO certification, MSME registration, etc..

 

How can an NGO be registered?

Broadly, NGOs in India function as either:

  • a Trust - since trusts are irrevocable and cannot be changed or terminated without the beneficiary’s permission, such form of organization is preferred by NGOs with extremely limited membership, or by permanent institutions such as orphanages/old age homes. While no Central Act governs trusts, certain States do regulate Public Trusts and by extension, NGOs;

  • a Society – societies are member-based organizations, operating under self-decided rules for governance by a committee elected by the members. Societies are registered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860;

  • or a Section 8 Company – Section 8 Companies are limited liability companies that are formed for the promotion of public purposes and for the general benefit of society. Regulated by the Companies Act, 2013, this is a preferred mode of organization that inspires confidence in both the government and donors.

PSARA License

PSARA LICENSE

 

Private security license is required for private security agencies who provide security services under PSARA Act, 2005.

 

Private Security agencies who provide security services including training of security guards need to be registered under the Private security agencies regulation act, 2005 (PSARA).

In 2005, the Parliament took note of the growth of private security agencies and enacted the Private Security Agencies (Regulation) Act, 2005 in an effort to regulate the functioning of the same. No person can now operate a security agency without obtaining a license for the same, and a contravention of this stipulation entails a period of imprisonment for up to a year or a fine up to 25,000 rupees, or both. Even if an individual wishes to provide such services abroad, it must do so with the permission of the Controlling Authority, which would look for the Central Government's approval in such cases.

While the Parliament expressed appreciation of such businesses, it also highlighted the issues in their governance – faulty background checks, use of uniforms closely relating to the military, naval, air force or police uniforms, etc., Furthermore, the existence of Multinational security agencies, in the opinion of the Legislature, would need safeguards, which it put in the PSARA.

eStartIndia is the best legal and business services platform for services relating to PSARA license registration in India, offering a variety of registration services like Trade License registration, ISO certification, MSME registration, etc.

 

Compulsions:

Section 4 of the PSARA Act, 2005 explicitly states that no persons shall engage in the private security agency sector without obtaining a license for the same.

Section 20(1) describes the penalties for violation of Section 4, which are –

  • Period of imprisonment up to 1 year;
  • Fine up to Rupees 25,000/-
  • Or both;

Thus, a license under the PSARA Act is absolutely necessary for persons carrying out/intending to carry out business in the Private Security Agency sector.
