A Non-governmental organisation is a voluntary association of people who engage in some social works. The Ngo’s do not concentrate on the profits. The Ngo’s are formed based on an objective; these objectives are basically welfare oriented in nature. These Ngo’s have their own rules, regulations and bye laws based on which they carry out their affairs. The financial support for these Ngo’s are rose through collecting funds from public, donations from various companies, funds from various international organizations and etc. In recent trends the Ngo plays an important role in the political and economic sphere of a nation and these Ngo’s have a role to play in the international politics as a pressure group or as an interest group or as the voice of public i.e public opinion, in India it is considered to be an effective tool in raising issues in the name of public opinion. The typical structure of an Ngo is similar to that of the company where a group of people known as trustees/boards hold the position similar to that of the directors. The non-governmental organization has a detailed delegation of their authority from the top board to the member of the organization. The Ngo’s are recognized as a citizen in India and possess the rights to file a writ petition. The growth of Ngo as a whole has seen a tremendous impact in the way of governance and in the minds of the people. This proved to be a 4th branch of the government in the modern world.
