2. FORMULATE MEMORANDUM OF ASSOCIATION (MOA)

MOA represents the charter of the Society. It defines the relationship of its founding members with the other members of the society. MOA specifies the objectives for which such a Society is formed. Such a document should be signed by each of its founding members. Further, the signing of the document must be in the presence of the following witnesses:

Oath commissioner/Notary Public/Gazette Officer/Advocate/First Class Magistrate. 

3. SUBMISSION OF DOCUMENTS AND REGISTRATION

The applicant must submit two copies of the MOA along with the rules and regulations document to the concerned registrar of societies within the state. Along with these documents, the applicant must also submit the requisite fees as specified by the state government.
