Terms Conditions

Terms & Conditions for online donations
All donations accepted through on line methods will be accounted for as the income of the PRATHAM MYSORE and will be applied for the charitable purposes they are meant for. However, if the donor wishes to make a large Corpus donation as its long term capital, then he should only use the cheque/payorder/DD method and state specifically in his covering letter that the donation is meant as contribution to the Corpus of PRATHAM MYSORE. In the absence of such specific direction, the donation will be accounted for as income of PRATHAM MYSORE by the Income Tax Dept.
The facility of making on line donations is currently restricted to Indian nationals and Indian organisations, in Indian rupees only.
In case the donor is a foreign national or a foreign owned or controlled organisation, then he can  use the cheque/pay order/DD facility  or direct bank remittance facility from outside India for this purpose. The necessary instructions in this regard can be obtained by sending an e-mail to prathammysore@gmail.com.
All donations will be accepted as donations meant for the various education related activities being undertaken by PRATHAM MYSORE (Purpose-General) unless the donor specifies the purpose for which the donation should be used.
All  non-foreign donations will be eligible for tax deduction benefits under Section 80 G of the Income Tax Act as per the existing rules.
PRATHAM MYSORE will be sending a receipt for the donation made, enclosing a copy of the  80 G certificate, to the address indicated on the registration form within 30 days of receiving the payment.
Please note that there is a levy of 2.5% charged by the Bank/Card companies on the on line donation made through credit/debit card. As a result, in such cases, the receipt issued by PRATHAM MYSORE will be for the amount net of this levy.
Please contact PRATHAM MYSORE by e mail or post in case you do not receive the receipt within the time indicated.
All donors making a donation of more than Rs 50000/- are, by law, required to give their PAN number on the registration form.
The donors are most welcome to re-assure themselves that their donations have been used for the purpose they have specified. In this connection, they may contact PRATHAM MYSORE.
Cancellation Policy
Once a donation has been made for a particular purpose, no refund can be made of the donation; nor can the end purpose be changed.
