    Kindly refer to the Income-Tax Department’s clarification dated 12.8.2022 in regard to forms 10BD and 10BE, quoted below:
    “Dear Taxpayers, It may be noted that statement of donation in Form 10BD and certificate of donation in Form 10BE is only applicable to the fund or institutions approved under sub clause (iv) of clause (a) of sub section (2) of Section 80G i.e Category D – Donation entitled for 50% deduction without qualifying limit. In respect of donations which fall in any other category (excluding category D), the deduction under Section 80G of the Act shall be allowed to an assesse based on the claim made by him in his return of income E.g. Donations made to PMNRF and PM CARES Fund etc.”
    I request the learned author to please confirm that this instruction is still valid. Thanks.

      Respected Rugram Ji

      I am not able to find the clarification quoted by you.

      In my opinion

      The basic intent of the legislature for introducing the furnishing of a statement of donation is to allow the deduction to the donor under section 80G for the donations it made to the trust or the institution based on the statement filed by the donee. This will cross-check the deduction claimed by the donor under section 80G. Only actual donations given by the donor will be allowed as a deduction and thus the possibility of claiming a fake deduction under section 80G by a taxpayer will be completely eliminated.

      1. Alok Goyal says:

        Dear Mr. Rugram Ji

        Section 80G(4) states that

        Where the aggregate of the sums referred to in sub-clauses (iv), (v), (vi), (via) and (vii) of clause (a) and in clauses (b) and (c) of sub-section (2) exceeds ten per cent of the gross total income (as reduced by any portion thereof on which income-tax is not payable under any provision of this Act and by any amount in respect of which the assessee is entitled to a deduction under any other provision of this Chapter), then the amount in excess of ten per cent of the gross total income shall be ignored for the purpose of computing the aggregate of the sums in respect of which deduction is to be allowed under sub-section (1).

        It means sub-clause (iv) of Section 80G(2)(a) is a donation entitled for 50% with qualifying limit.

        Further Section 80G(5) applies to donations to any institution or fund referred to in sub-clause (iv) of clause (a) of sub-section (2), only if it is established in India for a charitable purpose and as per sub clause (viii) of Section 80G(5) the trust / institute requires to file Form 10BD.

        And therefore in my opinion Form 10BD needs to be filed by all the trust / institutes covered U/s 80G(2)(a)(iv) and these trust gives 50% deduction with qualifying limit.

  2. Shridhar Khapale says:

    If trust having none of the doner has given PAN number or not willing to give his PAN number then is it compulsory to file 10BD form? All donations are like this?

      An organization must try to report all the donations it has received from all the donors rather than skip some of the donations. It will help the organization in future to address any scrutiny by the income-tax department

      Further you must keep in mind Section 115BBC which may get attracted in certain cases
