Co-operative Society Registration

How to define a Co-operative Society?

A cooperative society is a self-governing group of individuals united voluntarily to meet their everyday social, economic, and cultural needs and aspirations through jointly-owned and democratically-run enterprise. It is a voluntary association of individuals whose purpose is the well-being of its members; it protects the interests of the weaker section. Membership is entirely voluntary. A person is welcome to join a cooperative society and is also free to leave at any time. Everyone is eligible to join, regardless of gender, caste, or religion.

Despite being a separate legal entity, registration is required. The amount of the members’ contributions is the maximum amount of their liabilities. The cooperative society operates based on mutual aid and well-being. Therefore, the principle of service governs its operation. If there is a surplus, it is distributed as a dividend to the members by the society’s bylaws. The primary objective of Cooperative Society is to serve its members. For instance, in a Consumer Co-operative Store, goods are sold to members at a reasonable price while retaining a small profit margin. Additionally, it offers higher-quality goods to its members and the general public.

Various Forms of Co-operative Societies:

Who may establish a Co-operative Society?

A cooperative society may be registered by any group of ten or more individuals. The Cooperative Societies Act governs cooperative associations, and each district will have a Cooperative Society Registry.
