9.What sort of paperwork will I receive to confirm funding?
You will receive a receipt that will contain all relevant details to make you eligible for 80G exemption.
10.What does mode of implementation mean?
Gyan Sankalp Portal allows CSR companies to either directly implement a project or opt for government implementation. Direct implementation means that a corporate is responsible for implementing the project, either through hiring an agency to do the work or doing the work themselves. In this instance, no funds are transferred to the government directly, but the donation is given “in kind”. Government implementation means that the corporate will transfer money to the government, which will then implement the projects through their own channels and then report to the funder on project progress through the portal.
11.What does the dashboard do?
The Dashboard would allow donors to view projects and track their progress.
