Section 115W(a)(iii) of the I T Act specifically exempts funds ,trusts or institution eligible for exemption u/s 10(23C) or registered u/s 12AA of the I T Act . The Board vide circular no 8/ 2005 clarified under question number 4 as follows :Whether FBT is leviable on a company (registered under section 25 of Companies Act) even if it is registered u/s 12AA or its income is exempt u/s 10(23C)?

4. FBT is not payable by a trust, fund or institution if its income is exempt under section 10(23C) or it is registered under section 12AA of the Income-tax Act. Therefore, a company registered under section 25 of the Companies Act will also not be liable to FBT if its income is exempt under section 10(23C) or such company is registered under section 12AA of the Income-tax Act.

Therefore if the trust is not getting any kind of exemption u/s 20(23C) or 12AA , it shall be under FBT.
