The NGO Darpan is a service provided by NITI Aayog that allows VOs (village organisations) and NGOs (non-government organisations) to be eligible for new government schemes and grants. This platform works with the NIC and NITI Aayog to strengthen the relationship between the government and non-profit organisations.

Furthermore, completing the NGO Darpan registration process provides greater responsibility and credibility to non-profit organisations. The portal has evolved and fully matured into an e-governance application that helps create a more transparent and healthy relationship between NGOs and the government. Apart from that, any NGO/VO registered as a society/trust/private non-profit under Section 25 of the Companies Act, 2013 or 1956 may apply for NGO Darpan registration.
