Unregistered trust and itr 7 & Name of project institution


Hi all

I am filing  return of a Church which is not registered under section 12A. It is not claiming any kind of exemption and has only interest income. It is mandatory to fill 'Details of the projects / institutions run by you'. I have filled the name of the church and registering authority as the sectretariat it is registered under. 

The problem is that it asks for Section under which exemption claimed, if any (see instruction para 11e). This part actually should be optional as IF ANY words are used.

But if I fill this as OTHERS, error is generated 'total income should be zero is option OTHERS is selected'

Should I select  section 11?

Hii, Trusts not registered under any applicable exempted sections of the Act assessable as AOP. Since it is difficult to file ITR-7 for the same. Section 11 is applicable only for trsts registered u/s 12AA of the Act. Study about applicability of ITR -5 for  your assessee status ie. AOP (Trusts).



Thanks for the reply. But the requirement to file return is from The Secretariat of Confraternities (Archdiocese of Goa and Daman) and they have asked for ITR 7.

Can an unregistered trust having PAN of TRUST (i.e. AAATE....)  file ITR5 as AOP bacause ITR7 can not be filed as project details are mandatory and they are not available.

If by any chance you File ITR-7 for Unregistered Trust , you might get a defective notice and then evenetually you will have to reply by filling ITR-5 for unregistered trust as an AOP.
