Form 10BD or Form 10BE of Income Tax Act - ASC Group

Section 80G of the income tax act provides deductions to the assessees in case donations are made to eligible institutions, charitable organizations, and funds approved by the government (herein referred to as donee). However, the government noticed that there was no mechanism in place to counter-check whether the assessees claiming deduction under section 80G actually made the donations. Therefore, to counter-check such deductions, the government introduced a Statement of Donations in Form 10BD that is required to be filed by the donee. Let’s understand what is Form 10BD and how it will facilitate the government in cross-checking the donations made by the donors.
