Meaning of Society

Requirements for Society Registration
For Society registration, minimum 7 members are required who can be Indian residents, companies, foreigners, as well as other registered societies. If you plan to register the society on a national level, then minimum 8 members will be required from different States. An application for society registration is filed with the specific state authority where the registered office of society is situated. Before applying for society registration with the registrar, the establishing members must agree with the name of society and the Memorandum of Association should be finalized.
