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.
