Co-Operative Sectors

Co-operative movement in our country shall not only stay but also grow in times to come. In spite of the drawbacks experienced in the working and administration of the co-operative societies, they have positively contributed to the growth and development of the national economy. Promotion of thrift, self-help and mutual aid are the fundamental principles of co-operation. The orientations of commercial organization and co-operative organizations are basically different. The prime objectives, in addition to the three fundamentals of co-operation mentioned above are to make available the goods and services in required quantity, of better quality and at a reasonable price to its members. Co-operative banks play a vital role in rural development of India.

The following are arguments on how these banks play this crucial role

  • Co-operative banks create opportunities for employment and income generation in the rural areas.
  • They increase accessibility of goods and services, all of which also contribute to economic growth.
  • They encourage performance and competitiveness, as their members are also the beneficiaries. This also applies to deprived groups such as indigenous populations and disabled persons.
  • They tend to choose sustainable development options because of their member-driven nature, a key approach for rural areas whose population depends on the resilience of natural resources such as given that other types of enterprises often find it too expensive to invest in these areas or anticipate low levels of economic return. This is the case for electricity, water resources, financial services, and consumer supplies. In India, for instance, the consumer needs of 67 percent of rural households are covered by cooperatives. It helps to address many social and economic concerns such as community identity and strengthen the social fabric, particularly important in post-crisis contexts.
