The spirit of cooperation is engraved in the ethos of the society in Meghalaya: GHP Raju

Shillong, Nov 20: In an initiative aimed at improving the ease of doing business, a booklet on Online Registration of Cooperative Societies was today released by Shri. G H P Raju, Principal Secretary to the Government of Meghalaya, Cooperative Department in function held at Meghalaya Cooperative Rural Bank Ltd, Shillong.

The programme organised by the Cooperation Department, Government of Meghalaya and the Meghalaya Cooperative Apex Bank Ltd marked the closing ceremony of the week long 68th All India Cooperative Week Celebration held from November 14 to 21, 2021.  

Speaking on the occasion, Shri. G H P Raju observed that the spirit of cooperation is engraved in the ethos of the society in Meghalaya. Stating that most cooperative societies function on an auto pilot mode, Government intervention is often sought after only in crisis situations such as disease, disaster etc.

The role of the Government is to facilitate, strengthen and provide assistance to Cooperative societies in terms of providing working capital, equipment, training, field visits outside the state, he added.

Shri Raju also stated that funds alliable with MECOFED and Central Bureau for Housing Cooperation should be used for the development of infrastructure like storage facilities to aid the farmers, which in turn will go a long way in securing their earnings during the off seasons.

He also stressed on the importance of using the Cooperation Development Fund for conducting awareness, capacity building and computer literacy programmes for the 1500 active cooperatives societies across the state and for the creation of a social media cell to spread awareness about the department and the schemes that it offers.
