Our government is under a lot of pressure to ameliorate the conditions within the national legislation. However, due to many factors, the central government cannot address each and every issue simultaneously and this creates a space for specific organizations that assist the government working for the well-being of society. Such organizations are known as nonprofit organizations or non- government organizations. Widely known as Section-8 companies, these organizations are registered under the Section-8 of Companies Act 2013. These companies intend to promote art, commerce, sports, safety, science, research, healthcare, social welfare, religion, protection of the environment, etc. The main object of these companies ensures the promotion of the above-mentioned fields, provided the profit is used for promoting only objects of the company (Sec 8(1)(b)).
While some critics frown on the use of government funding for public housing assistance, the Section 8 program has its advantages :
To incorporate a Section 8 company a minimum of two persons are required over the age of 18 years with at least one person being an Indian citizen and resident.
