17th Indian Cooperative Congres: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Cooperative Minister Amit Shah participated in the 17th Indian Cooperative Congress program on the occasion of International Cooperative Day. During this, Amit Shah said that the Hakarita movement is about 115 years old in our country. Since independence, the main demand of the workers of the cooperative sector was that the Ministry of Cooperation should be made separate. Earlier all the work of cooperatives was looked after by the Joint Secretary under the Ministry of Agriculture and because of this there was a lot of difficulty in growing the cooperative sector, but PM Modi fulfilled our demand.
Cooperative movement has 29% share in loan distribution system
Amit Shah said that with the formation of an independent ministry, many changes have become possible in the Ministry of Cooperatives and in the field of cooperatives and changes will continue to happen in the future. He said that the cooperative movement accounts for about 29% of the economy of credit distribution. 35% in fertilizer distribution, 25% in fertilizer production, more than 35% in sugar production, the share of cooperatives in procurement, sale and production of milk is touching 15%.
The Union Minister said that many initiatives have been taken in the field of cooperatives under the leadership of Modi ji. First of all, within the constitutional framework, the Narendra Modi government has tried to bring uniformity in the cooperative law without disturbing the rights of the state and the center.

PACS accepted across the country
Shah said that the rules and regulations of Primary Agricultural Credit Societies (PACS) differed across the country. In order to bring uniformity in this, the Ministry of Cooperation has prepared all the bye-laws of PACS and sent them to all the states and union territories for consultation. 26 states and union territories have accepted it.
He told that after September, 85% PACS of the country will run on the same system. At present there are 85,000 PACS in the country. We have set a target that every village in the country will have a PACS in the next 3 years. This would mean more than 3 lakh PACS in the country.
