Introduction to Section 8

Section 8 is incredibly almost like section twenty-five of the previous company act and allows the govt to register any association with charitable objectives like to push sports, commerce, art and culture, education, analysis, etc as an Ld., while not adding the words ‘Pvt. Ltd.’ The financial gain of the corporate should be wont to promote the charitable object solely. The central government provides a license to any or all such firms and conjointly informs them concerning some restrictions and conditions. just in case they fail to satisfy these, the central government can also get them organized to land up the corporate. just in case deceitful objectives of the corporate are tried, the proceeding is taken against all officers of the corporate.
