Amit Shah announces 'co-operation policy' to be introduced in the country soon

New Delhi: Co-operation Minister Amit Shah has announced that he will soon introduce a new 'co-operation policy' in the country. The government is working on a new policy and it will be presented to the people of the country soon, Shah said. He made the announcement on the platform of the country's first National Co-operation Summit. The Ministry of Co-operation was announced in the Union Budget presented this year. Now, the ministry will implement a new policy on co-operation in the country.


Co-operation Minister Amit Shah said that co-operative societies in the country are playing a vital role in this development and expressed the need to bring coherence in their affairs. He expressed confidence that the co-operation department would play a pivotal role in achieving the country's dream of an economy worth Rs 5,000 crore. He said that the Ministry of Co-operation was set up to make the co-operative sector stronger and more capable. IFFCO, National Federation of Indian Co-operative Societies, Amul, Sahakar Bharti, NAFED and Kribhco have organized a co-operative meeting at Indira Gandhi Stadium in Delhi.

If the state and central governments work together and in collaboration, the co-operative movement can have golden days, said Amit Shah. Currently, the co-operative movement is at the state level. Each state has a different policy in this regard and there is a need for a nationwide policy coordinating all the states. It is believed that this will be a policy to enrich and commercialize the co-operative movement by tearing apart the growing malpractices in the co-operative sector in the last few years and the tradition of family politics in it.
