A few enthusiastic persons in Rahara (in the outskirt of Kolkata,India) felt an inner urge to contribute something to the society.Various ideas came up for discussion and debate.Ultimately it zeroed in a place very close to the place of discussion.This was the slums by the Railway track in Khardah, very close to Rahara which exhibited the poverty stricken small children wasting their time being away from local schools with some plea or the other.This led to the thinking that something needs to be done to help these children interested in school going habit.Thus was born the Shiksha Kendra of Rahara Abhikshan.This small step gradually brought in many other ideas to start the journey of our organization which is growing from strength to strength over the years with help from benevolent people and organizations.It was then felt reasonable to move in more organized manner and the process of registration etc. started off.
In the year 1999-2000,Rahara Abhikshan has been registered under West Bengal Society Registration Act 1961.
It has been registered under the Section 12AA and 80 G (5) (VI) of Income Tax Act 1961.This makes the donors eligible to get 50% rebate on donation in income tax deduction.
Rahara Abhikshan is also registered under Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act 1976 related to foreign donations.
