Hindustan FC is a registered organization with an income tax exemption " yet another rare distinction bestowed upon us by Income Tax Department after a thorough scrutiny of our club’s financial records. FIFA President Joseph Sepp Blatter during his last visit at Delhi, stressed that club football in India needs  to get more professional and this has been our endeavour over the  years. With the ranks of the club invariably studded with stars, achievements have all along been creditable.
