The corporate social responsibility rules that came into effect from Friday have given time till April 1, 2021 to implementing agencies such as trusts and societies to register with the ministry of corporate affairs while also setting a three year time-limit for any CSR project, among a series of other amendments introduced by the government.  

“It is a one-time registration in a simple single-page form where details of the members, PAN number etc has to be provided which can help us identify the implementing agencies on the MCA21 portal,” a senior government official told Business Standard.
