The receipt that you get from FSF-India should have the 80G exemption status
listed with registration number etc. This is what assessing tax officer
would cross check against.
Some of the charitable org have 50% tax exemption, some have 100% tax
exemption.
Generally this is listed at the bottom of the receipt.

Hope this helps.
