    • Hello Rushikesh, Yes Form 58A is very essential which you must collect from your Donee. You can claim tax benefit under 80G while filing income tax return.

      You will get the separate section of 80G in the form, you will insert the PAN number, name and address of the donee along with donation amount.

      It is very important to know whether your donation comes under which category.
      1. Donations entitled for 100% deduction without qualifying limit (section A)
      2. Donations entitled for 50% deduction without qualifying limit (section B)
      3. Donations entitled for 100% deduction subject to qualifying limit (section C)
      4. Donations entitled for 50% deduction subject to qualifying limit (section D)

      We don’t have to upload any document with the form or through the mail. You must keep the documents in the office copy for ITR record.
