As a good initiative of governance, Income Tax department has made the list public for all the institutes which are having tax exemption under various sections like 12A, 80G, 10(23c) etc..
You can search your organisation’s name in this list of exempted institutes by following method.
Step 1 : Go to this website –
Step 2: Enter PAN number in Search Area
There are lots of fields are given for searching NGO in exemption lists, like Name, PAN, Sections, Text even as an advanced search like range, authority, dates etc.. But because the database is so huge, it is advisable to use your NGO’s PAN for searching purpose.
Step3 : Check the status
In case of any discripancies
You may get discrepancies related to your exemption status or not getting your name at all. Like I have experienced that, exemption for 12A is showing for particular organization but not for 80G. Income Tax department has not put any button or email to contact regarding any query related to this utility or database. However, in “Contact us” page, toll free numbers are given where one can contact and raise their query.
