A service offered by NITI Aayog called NGO Darpan enables VOs (village organisations) and NGOs (non-governmental organisations) to qualify for new government grants and programmes. To improve ties between the government and nonprofit organisations, this platform collaborates with the NIC and NITI Aayog.

Additionally, completing the NGO Darpan registration process gives non-profit organisations additional accountability and legitimacy. The portal has completely developed into an e-governance tool that supports the development of a trusting and productive relationship between the government and NGOs. In addition, any NGO or VO that has been registered as a society, trust, or private non-profit under Section 25 of the Companies Act, 2013 or 1956 is eligible to apply for NGO Darpan registration.

NRIs only allowed to incorporate limited business entities in India including private limited company and limited liability partnership.

However, the private limited company is ideal for NRIs.
