In fact, such NGO/NPO can generate profits but the income of the Section 8 Company must be used to promote only charitable objects and it cannot pay any dividend to the members of the company.
This company is similar to trust and society, an exception to this is that Trust and Societies get registered under State Govt. Regulation whereas a Section 8 Company is registered online under aegis of Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India.
