The NGO-Partnership System (NGO-PS) Portal was earlier maintained by erstwhile Planning Commission, which has been replaced by the NITI Aayog w.e.f. 1st January, 2015. The NGO-PS Portal, therefore, is being maintained at present under the aegis of NITI Aayog. NITI Aayog invites all Voluntary Organizations (VOs)/ Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to Sign Up on this system. The portal facilitates VOs/NGOs to figure in the database system of the Voluntary Sector maintained by NITI Aayog and also helps them to apply online for Governments Grants under various schemes of the below mentioned Ministries/Departments/Governments Bodies.
Voluntary and Non-Governmental Organisations(NGOs) play a major role in the development of the nation by supplementing the efforts of the Government. NGO-Darpan is a portal to enable NGOs to enrol centrally and thus facilitate creation of a repository. It would also facilitate the Ministries/Departments to view the details of NGOs enrolled in different sectors/states.
