A Trustee is trusted for holding a fiduciary responsibility in managing the affairs of the trust. So appointing trustees become a critical role in the formation of a trust. Parents who wish to create a trust for special needs child care generally look towards family members for the role of a trustee post their lifetime.
In India, private trust covers the structure of creating a secure future for a special needs dependent. Through the private trust, the parents can choose to manage the child affairs as they wish to. It also ensures that the legacy left for the special needs child is managed to provide for the child lifetime care needs. Though a trustee manages the affairs they never own the trust assets which bring a fiduciary nature when a trust is functioning.
