ABOUT Trust Registration

The concept of 'trust' relates to the ancient times. When the properties were dedicated for charitable, pious, religious, social welfare, educational, medical purposes. The Trust laws came to India via English Trust law which stipulates dual ownership of trust property i.e. legal title vests with the trustee while equitable title vests with the beneficiary. On this basis, Indian Trusts Act 1882 was enacted.

A 'trust' is an obligation annexed to the ownership of property and arising out of a confidence reposed in and accepted by the owner, or declared and accepted by him, for the benefit of another or of another and the owner.

Indian Trust Act has no application to public or private, religious or charitable endowment.


Service Motive

You can lend help to charities by creating a charitable trust that may award money to the needy people while you're still alive. It would give more money in case of your death followed by regular payments out of the remainder. There is a possibility of limited liability in case of a corporate trustee.

Asset Protection

Trusts can be one of the most effective ways of protecting assets. In simple terms, assets transferred to a trust no longer form part of the Settlor’s property, so the trust assets cannot be seized if a Settlor gets into financial difficulties. This is an oversimplification of the law. Under certain circumstances, the transfer into trust may be set aside and a court may order the trust assets to be transferred back to the Settlor.

Limited Liability

Limited liability is possible if a corporate trustee is appointed. the structure provides more privacy than a company. there can be flexibility in distributions among beneficiaries.

Tax Planning

Assets transferred into trust are no longer considered as belonging to the Settlor, so the income and capital gains generated by those assets are taxed according to the rules governing the legal owner – the Trustee. Inheritance tax would be eliminated because the Trustee would continue in existence despite the death of the Settlor. Anti-avoidance legislation in the home country of the Settlor, or in the location of the trust assets, may seek to counteract this outcome but a correctly structured and administered trust should produce substantial tax savings.


Proving a will is a public procedure. The tax authorities will need to receive a complete list of all the property owned by the deceased in order to assess the amount of estate duty payable before the property can be transferred to the executors who may then distribute to the legal heirs according to the will. This procedure is entirely unsuitable for those who wish to keep details of their assets confidential. The only other legal form of transfer is via a trust and this would generally save estate duty and keep the trust assets confidential.
