    Please share the details of these cases.

  2. Subhash Mittal says:

    A bit surprised that S.80G has been denied to NGOs working for preservation of environment, since this item has been specifically defined as one of the charitable purpose under S.2(15) of Income Tax Act. Preservation of environment (including watersheds, forests and wildlife) has been there in the definition since 1-4-2009. Ask the concerned NGOs to discuss the issues with their tax consultants to go into the details to understand the reasons for rejection.
