35 ac approval helps the nonprofit ngo organization, to encourage their donors towards fundraising for their specific approved social welfare projects and ngo issues donation certificate for tax exemption.

Under 35 ac, the donor who donates the nonprofit ngo organization for a specific social welfare project, gets 100% tax exemption for the amount, which they donated from their Gross total Income, after their various internal income deduction. There is no limitation for the donor to donate under section 35 ac.

When a nonprofit ngo organization receives donations under 35 ac sections it should provide a receipt to the donor, which makes them to claim their tax exemption. Also that receipt should be with the date, validity period of 35 ac, and number of 35ac. The receipt which issued to the donor is FORM 58a which is also called as donation certificate.

This exemption is suitable only for the professional income peoples or business people. Other than business person or professionals, this 35 ac tax exemption will not be a valid one. So the people other than business or professional income shall claim the exemption under 80 GGA - [80GGA (2) (bb)] who are unable to claim tax exemption in any of the 35 ac related sections. In 80 GGA section also there is no limitation for the donors to donate. Please refer with your chartered person for the current notification of tax exemption to the donors.

How the donor gets 35 ac tax exemption ?

Example : Mr. Xyz is doing business and getting income of Rs. 20,000 Rupees per month. He donates an organization in a month for Rs. 6000/- Now lets calculate his 35 ac tax exemption:

Particulars Amount in Rs.
Annual salary income of Mr. Xyz - Income tax on this Rs. 24,200 2,40,000
Several Deductions  80,000
Gross Total Income of Mr.Xyz. 1,60,000
Less: Deduction under 35 AC on taxable income 
( 100% of the donation amount )
NET Income - Income Tax on this Rs.22,220 1,54,000
So the payable tax on Annual salary 24,200
Less: the payable tax after deduction under 35 AC 22,220
Actual tax relief to the donor under section 35AC (Mr. Xyz) 1980

In this way you shall also calculate 125% tax exemption for the donors who donates under 35 ac (i) (iii)
