Private vs Public Trust
Indian Trusts Act, 1882 regulates and administers the private trusts in India, whereas the public trusts direct the functioning of public trusts except in the state of Maharashtra and Gujarat where public trusts are governed by Bombay Public Trusts Act, 1950.
Number of Trustees
There is no upper limit for the trustees in a trust, but a minimum of two trustees are always required for registration. The trust deed should have provision concerning the management of the trust along with the procedure of appointing or removing the members.
