About Us

While endeavouring to rejuvenate the nation, th significance of co- operative sector, has been recognized and to enhance qualatative growth of co-operative movement, the Sahakar Baharati has last for 24 years has dedicatedly has performed with a moto of “ Bina Sanskar, Nahi Sahakar” and has engaged in building the team of socially devoated co-operative activists. By synchronizing, supplementing, co-ordinating various activites of different co-operative units and developing attachment among themselves, we can create a well organized , co- ordinated co-operative power and on the strength of it we have confidence to solve the emerging challenges faced by co-operative sector.

Sahakar Bharati has conducted many symposiums and seminars on themes like “ Rural development through cooperation” , “ Co-operation – The pillar of Indian Economy”, “Automonous Co-operatives and self reliant India”, “ Co-operation – An option to free economic policy”. Thus we have during last 24 years have been able to do introspective transformation in the Co-operative / Financial organizations. Co- operative movement should remain automonous and co-operative law which has become an impediment in development of co-operative sector should be changed. These are the foremost demands of the Sahakar Bharati is pursuing. You must be aware that this activity has made Government of Maharashtra to reconsider some provision in co-operative laws. Untile now 7 states have passed the ‘Self – Relient co-operative Act’ in Kerala state to implement the above act ‘ Post Card Movement’ was taken place. The Sahakar Bharati has lodged the suit in Karnataka High Court against the levy of ‘Co-operative Welfare Tax’ and won the case. We have put lot of efforts in implementing “Crop Insurance scheme for farmers. We have also remained fore front in solving problems in co-operative sector. Sahakar Bharati is also involved in many creative and project oriented work and also reconstructing such organizations. Live example of this the revival of Madhopura Mercantile Co-operative Bank in Gujarat. With all such panoram ie.activities Sahakar Bharati is able to change the face of co-operative sector in India up to large extend.
