A public charitable trust is a legal entity that is created to benefit the public or a specific group of people. It is established for charitable purposes, such as the relief of poverty, the advancement of education, the protection of the environment, or the promotion of health.

Here are some key features of a public charitable trust:

  1. Trust Deed: A public charitable trust is created through a trust deed, which is a legal document that outlines the purposes of the trust, its objectives, and the rules for its operation. The trust deed also specifies the trustees who will manage the trust and the beneficiaries who will benefit from it.

  2. Trustees: The trustees of a public charitable trust are responsible for managing the trust and ensuring that its objectives are met. They are legally bound to act in the best interests of the trust and its beneficiaries.

  3. Beneficiaries: The beneficiaries of a public charitable trust are the individuals or groups of people who benefit from the trust's activities. These beneficiaries are usually the public or a specific community that the trust aims to serve.

  4. Non-profit: A public charitable trust is a non-profit organization, meaning that it is not established for the purpose of making a profit. Any income generated by the trust must be used for its charitable purposes and cannot be distributed to the trustees or members.

  5. Registration: In India, public charitable trusts are governed by the Indian Trusts Act, 1882. To be recognized as a public charitable trust, the trust deed must be registered with the relevant state government authority.

  6. Tax Benefits: Public charitable trusts are eligible for certain tax benefits under the Income Tax Act, 1961. Donations made to a registered public charitable trust are eligible for tax deduction under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act.

Overall, public charitable trusts play a vital role in promoting charitable activities and addressing social issues. They are a popular form of charitable organization due to their flexibility and ease of establishment.
