The first step to register a trust starts with the drafting of a trust deed. The trust deed is to be executed on appropriate non-judicial stamp paper, the rate of stamp duty differs from state to state. The next step is to seek an appointment with the sub-registrar office having jurisdiction based on the registered office of the trust, and the government registration fee is to be paid after that.

On the appointed date the trust deed is presented before the sub-registrar where all trustees need to be present along with two witnesses. The registration process is then undertaken by the office of the sub-registrar, and the registered deed can be collected after a week time. The next logical step shall be to get the PAN and TAN Number allotted for the trust and open a Bank A/c for the  trust.

Book-Entry for Trust Formation.
Book entries for Trust formation can be of two types, which we’ll explain in brief.
Entries made by the Donor in his own Books.
The basic requisite to make a declaration of trust valid is that the donor should have absolutely parted with that interest which was owned by him at the
time of the declaration. If there is no setting apart of ascertained property and no disinvestment on the part of the settlor of the ownership thereof, mere
book-entry cannot result in an effective trust.
Entries made on Debtors Books.
If a credit entry is made in the books of the debtor in favor of a trustee displaying an interest in the creation of a trust rather than in the books of a donor,such an entry would amount to a specific appropriation for the trust.


A deed isn’t mandatory for the formation of a trust. A trust can be formed by a deed or a mere oral agreement. However, it is advisable for charitable trusts and trusts with immovable property to have a trust deed. In some cases where trust deed is not available, documents such as revenue records for lands, property tax receipts, affidavits and other such documents, may be accepted in the place of a formal trust deedKnow more about charitable trust registration.
A trust can be public even if the control of the trust property was not vested in the public but was retained by the settlors, provided that the funds are utilized for the welfare of the public, which makes it clear that the public trust can be headed and controlled by a private entity.
