Its totally depends upon the institution whether its fall under 50% category or 100%. Generally these institution falls under 50% category.

Further if you are filing Quick ITR/online Web Mode then just select 50% or 100% category as mentioned on receipt issued by engineering college society and portal will calculate deduction automatically.

Hi,

The section and % of deductions is usually mentioned on the donation receipt itself. However generally if the institution is eligible, it is u/s 80 G and 50% is allowed subject to maximum of 10% of gross taxable income.

Hope that clarifies.

If there is nothing mentioned in the donation receipt then it's not eligible for deduction.
