If you are an NGO, a Section 8 corporation or a charitable trust and are availing benefits of registering under sections 12 A and 80G deduction, revalidation is necessary for you. You will need to apply to the Income Tax authorities for revalidation of your existing 80G and 12A registration. Without the revalidation, you will not be able to enjoy the existing benefits of 12A certificate for NGO and 80G deduction.
This revalidation is necessitated due to a recent amendment brought in by the Finance Act, 2020. It has proposed a new regime for institutions, charitable/religious trusts, universities, hospitals, educational institutions, other medical institutions etc.
The Act has mandated all charitable institutions, already registered under Sections 12A/12 AA or/and 80G of the Income Tax Act, 1961, to re-obtain the existing approval/registration under the revised provisions. This new regime has become applicable from 1st June 2020 and registered institutions were asked to apply for revalidation by 31st August 2020. However, due to the prevailing COVID-19 situation, the CBDT has deferred the implementation of the new procedure to 1st October 2020. This means the new date to start the compliance procedure is October 1, 2020. The same will continue till December 31, 2020.
