    we are engineers and doctors who are running a charitable trust in bangalore.
    none of us are fulltime into the running of the trust and we do not take any salary from the trust.
    we do not employ any person in the trust.
    we are engaging a catering company to supply food to two slum schools.
    we now received a notice from prof tax dept saying we have to enroll and pay PT.
    we would like to know if PT is applicable in our case.
