The term society itself means a group of people who are involved in continuous social interaction with each other. A society also includes large social group sharing the same geographical, social territory. The term Societies Registration has been derived from the Latin word ‘Socius’ which means association or companionship. An Individual or independent original human being is considered to be the basic component of the society. Now when one individual interacts or communicates with another individual then it gives birth to groups. When these groups again interact and communicate with each other then they develop some relationship with one another which leads to the formation of society.
For example if the players of a football team or a cricket team or any other game come together then they will not be called a society but will only be termed as an aggregate of people. Within a society there must be groupings on the basis of likes and differences and dislikes. ‘Likeness’ helps in creating a series of relation among different individuals having similarity in different conditions like having same profession, same residence, same caste, family togetherness, same age group of people, sex and etc.
