Nisaptham Trust - Address and PAN for 80G

Today (July 31st) is the last day for filing income tax returns. Donations to charity and political parties are exempted for tax under Indian income tax clause 80G.

When it comes to donations, World Vision India used to be my choice because of their professionalism and prompt communications.

Of late, having heavily impressed by Nisaptham Blogger's writings about his charity work, I thought of sending meager amount to his charity Nisaptham Trust. Unfortunately, when I sent that in March, it was not a pleasant experience. I had to randomly follow him through email and WhatsApp to get PAN of Nisaptham Trust; he shared that PAN details after 3-months.

When I try filing returns yesterday, it was another shock; apart from PAN, I also need to furnish the charity address. I quickly searched through Google and there were no results about the address; I can only find its bank account details. Google's autocomplete suggestions hinted the possibility of such queries by others though. One option is to contact the charity and get the address; but I had no hope on its speedy response. So, I had to dig nisaptham.com for about 3 hours and found the charity address hidden in some scanned photos.

And, thought of putting up here for anyone who's searching same address and PAN details of Nisaptham Trust:

Address

Nisaptham Trust
No. 320, 4th Main Road,
AECS Layout, 'B' Block,
Singasandra,
Bengaluru
560068

PAN

AACTN0009L

Hope this helps somebody.
