Indian cooperative movement has over the years achieved a great deal but there is still a lot to be accomplished. The cooperative movement is supposed to be a citizens’ centered initiative but what one sees today is a network of organizations popped up by the governmental support.
Ordinary members are kept in the dark about how decisions are made at the top level.This stems from the fact that a few people come together and form a group to exercise absolute power. It defeats the very purpose of the movement.
This news portal is coming into the existence today to inform ordinary members about the workings of organizations that claim to seek strength form the min the name of running the cooperative movement. The portal is committed to supporting all those well-meaning individuals who are at work making the cooperative movement a success in India.
Initially, we are coming with a news portal which will not act as a source of data as well as a medium where one gets daily updates on what is happening in the world of cooperatives.
In a short span of time, indiancooperative.com has grown from strength to strength. Towards the end of 2009 when we began there were only 30 thousand readers per month. In 2012, it increased rapidly to over 30 lakh (3 millions) visitors per month and today, after nearly ten years the portal is attracting traffic to the tune of 1.5 lac daily hits.
Obviously, there was no common platform available where people could express their opinions. This platform is open for all- from ordinary cooperators to national level cooperative leaders to sympathizers and believers in the cooperative model of growth.
