Co-operative Movement in India: A Critical Appraisal

G.R. Madan (Author)
Synopsis The Co-operative Movement in India has passed through various ups and downs. It may be said to have begun with the passing of the Co-operative Societies Act of 1904. A landmark in the history of the Movement was the announcement by the Government of India of a National Co-operative Policy in 2002 alongwith some legislative reforms by enacting the new Multistate Co-operative Societies Act, 2002. The Government also set up a Task Force in 2002 to recommend measures for strengthening the Co-operative Movement. However, an expert appointed by the ICA Regional Office in India had in a report in 2004 stated that progress in the implementation of the National Co-Operative Policy 2002 by the Government of India had been very slow. The reasons for this slide needed to be studied. The author, a veteran sociologist and economist has done this and dealt with almost all aspects of the Co-operative Movement in the country during its historical development and evolution. This is a revised edition of his excellent study first published in 1994. This authoritative book contains almost all one might like to know about the Co-operative Movement by an expert who has devoted a long period of time to study the subject. A must for all collections on co-operatives and related issues.
