    This paper focuses NGO (Non-government organization) registration
    through the government run community development projects (CDPs),
    post registration facilitations by these projects for NGOs, requirements
    made by the NGOs and the CDPs’ dealings with registered NGOs.
    Though, the CDPs facilitate NGOs registration, the registration process is noticed lengthy and complicated. The funding role of the CDPs is quite low as compared to other facilitations provided while NGOs mostly require funding assistance. These development projects operate in participative and authoritative way while working with the NGOs. The study discussion suggests that improvement in NGOs registration process, funding increase for NGOs’ development projects and participative and cooperative dealings of the CDPs could enhance performance of both NGOs and the CDPs.
