REGISTRATION OF DEDUCTIONS UNDER INCOME TAX
SECTION 80GGA - Section 35AC is available to assess who has income from the head ‘business' or ‘profession'. Therefore, for the assesses who are not having income from business or profession, this section 80GGA provides them with a deduction on donations made to eligible projects under section 35AC.
Section 80GGA provides some deductions for contributions made for scientific research under sections 35CCA & 35CCB, which have been withdrawn. In total a 100 percent deduction would be available under section 80GGA, subject to the available gross total income of the assesses as per section 80A. Also, unlike section 35AC, deduction under section 80GGA cannot be carried forward in the form of losses to next year.

EXTENT OF BENEFIT FOR 80G DEDUCTION
If an NGO gets itself registered under section 80G, then the donors making a donation to the NGO will get a deduction of 50% from his/its taxable income. The NGO has to apply in Form No. 10G to the Commissioner of Income Tax for such registration and is generally granted for a period of 2-3 years.
When calculating an assessee's total income and calculating the deductible amount under section 80G, the aggregate of the sums donated must first be determined. Then, 50% of such donations must be discovered, and they should be limited to 10% of gross total income. If this amount is greater than 10% of gross total income, the excess must be ignored.
The Finance Act of 2009 removed the five-year restriction from the proviso to subsection (5) clause (vi). In other words, registration certificates issued after October 1, 2009, can only be used once, unless a particular restriction is specified in the certification itself.
