Title Usage

There is no compulsion for Section 8 NGO to use any suffix at the end of their name. For Eg a private limited company or a public company is required to add “pvt. ltd.” or “ltd” at the end of name respectively. There is no such compulsion for a Section 8 NGO.

Transfer Of Ownership/Titles

Likewise in the case of NGOs registered under the Income Tax Return Act of 1961, in fact can easily transfer their ownership or claims of the interests earned. For other companies, it’s a complicated and time-taking process.
