The registration of Trust and Trust Deed Registration are one and the same thing. While Private trusts are registered under the Indian Trusts Act, Public trusts are registered under state specific laws for trust registration. Therefore, each state has prescribed a distinct process and application for Public trust registration, whereas, for the registration of a private trust, the registration of its deed is enough, and there is no need to file a separate application. As such, there is no uniform trust registration form to register a trust. The basic documents to register a trust deed include the KYC
documents of its author, trustee and witnesses to the signature of the trust deed.
