Priya Arangan Adiyar,
It is that period of the time in a year where ‘money spent’ could actually mean ‘savings’ unlike the usual money spent = expenditure. Bhaaratham, the land of mystics, has always been a giver to the world. From gifting precious philosophies to the world, it has also held in its bosom, refugees from across the world, thus giving them life and hope. “ Paropakaaratham idham shareeram” “ This body is meant for service” is not a mere dogmatic saying of the Indian Land. Our own ancestors have lived by the saying. The sastric pearls revealed by the Supreme Being through the Rishis have been weaved together with the fine thread of paropakaram. As per the sastras, the day should begin with feeding the sparrows and other birds in and around the house. The early morning “kolam” laid at the entrance of the house has an embedded purpose of providing food to the ants and other tiny creatures. From dawn till dusk, every act has been designed to include a concealed ‘selfless service’. In service, our society basked in happiness.
The makers of the Indian constitution, though did not capture the true spirit of selfless service in entirelty, have given a small space for it in the form of tax savings against donations. For this, they have set a framework of rules within the Income Tax Act,1961. Contribution to Trusts having 80G registration can alone enjoy tax exemption/deduction.
Our Srimaan Trust has registration under 80G. Any contribution to the Trust is eligible for 80G deduction. It is to be noted that the contribution should be made within 31.03.2013 for availing the deduction for 2012-13.
Our Trust has sailed innumerable people through difficult times.
Seldom do acts come with multiple benefits. But your contribution to the Trust will :
1.Save you income tax and help retain your money with you. Money in your hand is worth thousands with the Income Tax Department.
2.Bring smile in the faces of hundreds of children fed and looked after by the Trust.
3.Turn your donation into an investment in the heart of the Supreme Being from where your spouse, son, daughter will receive perpetual dividends in the form of good grades, excellent health, worthy jobs and overall prosperity.
4.Set you apart from the average man who thinks only of himself neglecting the needy.
