Clarification regarding cancellation of registration u/s I2AA
It is clarified that it shall not be mandatory to cancel the registration already granted u/s 12AA to a charitable institution merely on the ground that the cut-off specified in the provisoto section 2(15) of the Act is exceeded in a particular year without being there any change in the nature of activities of the institutions. If in any particular year, the specified cut-off is exceeded, the tax exemption would be denied to the institution in that year and cancellation of registration would not be mandatory unless such cancellation becomes necessary on the ground(s) prescribed under the act.
