Depends upon the nature of crowd funding and how it is structured. If it is a digital equity crowdfunding, the same will be deemed illegal as per SEBI Regulations. However, digital yet charity based crowdfunding may not involve any regulatory check at all as no particular rights would be created in the donor/investor. SO it all boils down to how you really structure the deal and what is being offered.
