Cooperative week celebrations conclude

The All-India Cooperative Week celebrations, organised by the Regional Institute of Cooperative Management, concluded here today.

In his keynote address, Mr Vikramjit Sharma, Regional Director of the NCDC, stressed upon the need for a professional approach in the cooperatives and said that only a competent management system would be able to lead the cooperatives towards its goals.

Transparency in accounts and other such decisions would associate more and more people with the Cooperative Sector.

Later, Mr B.S. Rohila, spokesman for the Regional Institute of Cooperative Management expressed his gratitude to the guest for gracing the occasion.

Importance of cooperatives in Indian economy discussed

To understand the ideology and ethos of cooperation in the competitive global environment, a national symposium on "Cooperation as a tool of Social Change In India" and an inter-university national debating competition on cooperation was organised at the Regional Institute of Cooperative Management, Sector 32, here today.

The two-day symposium was organised by the National Cooperative Union of India and National Council for Cooperative Training, New Delhi. Over 100 participants from various cooperatives and universities are participating in the seminar.

On the inaugural day, the participants took part in a debate on cooperatives as an instrument of socio-economic development to meet the challenges of the privatisation, liberalisation, and globalisation.

Dr S.S. Sisodia, president of the National Cooperative Union of India, in his inaugural address, said the debate was being organised since 1963 and it provided the students an opportunity to interact with academicians and cooperative leaders. He said cooperative leadership was important for the younger generation.

The National Council for Cooperative Training, under the aegis of National Cooperative Union of India, was promoting human resource development among cooperative managers, and members of various training institutes.

Mr Sat Mahajan, Minister of Revenue and Panchayati Raj, Himachal Pradesh, cited few examples of contribution of the cooperatives in the changing economic and global environment.

There was a need to change the management and functioning of the cooperative organisations by adopting the latest changes in the Cooperative Acts, he stressed.

The Minister of Science and Technology, Punjab, Mr Rakesh Pandey, in his address emphasised the role of science and technology in the present information era. There could be a drastic change in the agricultural sector with the adoption of new technology.

In the second part of the programme, a national symposium on " Cooperation as a tool for social change in India"saw participation by Prof S.L. Goel, UGC Professor, Panjab University, and R.L. Bhatia, Director of HARCOFED, and Mr S.S. Channy, Managing Director of MARKFED.

Training programme for lecturers

The Regional Institute of Cooperative Management here organised a training programme for the lecturers of junior training centres and education instructors of cooperative departments of Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.

The five-day programme was inaugurated by Mr Roshan Lal, Registrar Cooperatives, Punjab, on December 26. The valedictory function of the course was held today which was presided over by Mr Sita Ram Chauhan, chairman, management committee of the institute. Mr G.D. Bakshi and Dr A.C. Vaid, Principal, SD College Sector 32, Chandigarh, were the chief guest and guest of honour, respectively.

City to emerge as coop management studies centre

After Pune, Chandigarh is all set to emerge as a major centre of the cooperative management studies. Come July, the Regional Institute of Cooperative Management (RICM), Sector 32, will start a new course — postgraduate diploma course in business management.

To be launched in collaboration with the Vaikunth Mehta National Institute of Cooperative Management (VAMNICOM), Pune, the course will be equivalent to the MBA course awarded by the Association of the Indian Universities (AIU). The admission to the two-year full-time residential course will be done on the basis of an all-India test conducted on February 13.

In fact, the RICM has added another feather to its cap with VAMNICOM according it the status of its sub-centre. Under the new course, 20 of the 60 seats have been allocated to the RICM and it would be for the first time outside Pune that such a course would be offered, the RICM Regional Director, Mr Niraj Pasricha, told Chandigarh Tribune here today.

Detailing the benefits of the new course, Mr Pasricha said it would help bridge the gap between demand and supply of the cooperative professionals in the North India. Already, there is an acute shortage of trained manpower in the region for the cooperative sector.

Terming Chandigarh as the ideal place for starting the course, Mr Pasricha said the RICM could draw on the experienced faculty available in the city. Besides, the VAMNICOM and RICM faculty, the faculty from the University Business School(UBS) of Panjab University would teach the students. Similarly, experts from various banks and financial institutions and other organisations would help students hone their skills.

Officials highlighted that the new course was the part of an RICM project aiming to “diversify” the cooperative management education in the region.

Punjab Cooperative Act to be amended, says minister

Cooperative banks that played a crucial role in the green and white revolutions, are today passing through a critical phase. Though they have cut down the interest rate from 14.5 per cent to 13 per cent for farmers, they are unable to match the interest rate of commercial banks, Mr Lal Singh, Finance and Cooperation Minister Punjab, said here today.

Speaking at a function organised at the Regional Institute of Cooperative Management to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the cooperative movement, he said, “We are making efforts to further cut down the interest rates in the cooperative banks but it would not be possible for cooperative societies to match the reduced rate of commercial banks due to higher costs.”

He said Nabard had agreed to restructure high-cost loans worth Rs 1200 crore at a lower interest rate that would result in saving of Rs 48 crore annually. He claimed that state government would amend the State Cooperative Act in the coming session of the state Assembly to make the cooperative societies autonomous.

Appreciating the contribution of the cooperative movement in the development of economy, Mr Kuldeep Kumar, Minister for Cooperatives, Himachal Pradesh, said, “In Himachal alone, 4,280 cooperative societies were functioning and had given employment to 12.56 lakh persons. Till now they were concentrating on credit, production and procurement business, but efforts would be made to start cooperative societies for the service sector as well, including the education and health sectors. “

He said due to the dominance of the bureaucracy and politicisation of the cooperative sector, their potential was not being fully realised. Himachal State Cooperative bank had advanced just Rs 26 crore to the cooperative societies out of a total of Rs 217 crore advances, he said. Similarly, Kangra Cooperative Bank had just advanced about 5 per cent to the cooperative societies out of the Rs 141 crore advances.

Mr Kumar said the state government would also amend the State Cooperative Act on the pattern of the Punjab Act that would be amended soon, to empower the cooperative societies.

Mr N. Pasricha, Regional Director, Regional Institute of Cooperative Management, and Mr Bhagwati Parsad, Director-General, National Council for Cooperative Training, New Delhi, also spoke on the occasion.

Good resources for fisheries in Punjab

Talking to fish farmers at a two-day seminar organised by the Regional Institute of Cooperative Management, Chandigarh, Dr S.C. Agarwal, Director and Warden of Fisheries-cum-Chairman of Fish Farmers’ Development Agencies, said that Punjab had very good resources for the development of social fisheries. In addition to village ponds, numerous irrigation dams had been constructed in the kandi areas which could be mobilised for the development of fisheries. These resources could be leased out to the fisheries cooperative societies for better management and production of fish. For the first time, a small reservoir having 87 hectare water area in Ropar district had been on lease to demonstrate the benefits of cooperative society to the people.

Mr M.M. Tiwari, Managing Director, National Federation of Fishermen Cooperative Ltd., said the federation would provide all types of assistance to the fisheries cooperative sector in Punjab.

Dr B.K. Mishra, Director, FISHCOFED, emphasised the importance of group accidental insurance scheme for the fishermen.

Stress to strengthen coop movement

Mr S.S. Dhillon, Registrar of the Cooperative Societies of the Haryana Government, underlined the need for strengthening the cooperative movement in the country.

While inaugurating the higher diploma programme in cooperative management at the Regional Institute of Cooperative Management (RICM) in Sector 32 here on Monday, Mr Dhillon said there was an urgent need to run the cooperative institutions on a professional basis in the wake of the changing socio-economic environment in the country.

Earlier, Dr Niraj Pasricha, Regional Director, RICM, in his welcome address, assured quality training to the participants. Improvement in all aspects of training was a dynamic thing and resting on past laurels brought about the downslide, he added.

He said that the Himachal Pradesh Government had recognised the diploma as an important qualification for the job-seekers in the cooperative sector.

Participants from Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir are taking part in the programme.

Cooperatives to be elective subject

Cooperatives will be one of the elective subjects for all students up to plus two in schools all over the country, Mr Rikhi Ram Kaundal, Himachal Pradesh Minister for Cooperation, said here today.

Talking to TNS after the 48th all-India Cooperative Day function held at the Regional Institute of Cooperative Management, the Minister said a Bill to this effect would be introduced in Parliament in the winter session.

The Minister appeared to be quite optimistic that the Bill would be adopted by both Houses and would become an Act to enable the introduction of cooperatives as an elective subject from the academic session beginning from April next year.

He told a gathering of cooperative department officials from Punjab. Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir, apart from the Union Territory of Chandigarh, who had come to undergo training at the institute, that the introduction of this subject would give a fillip to the cooperative movement.

Thakur Devender Singh, Chairman of the Management Committee of the institute, dwelt at length on the need for dedicated and efficient leadership in cooperatives.

The Chairman underlined the importance of womens participation in the cooperative movement in the country. He urged the Minister to frame rules so that cooperative banks were not compelled to advance loans to unproductive sectors.

Dr N. Pasricha, Regional Director of the institute, highlighted the need for professional work culture in cooperatives.

Coop movement still relevant

Despite tough competition from the private sector, the cooperative movement is still relevant in the country. It has the potential to benefit its members and the economy at the grassroots level. However, its management and members will have to play a decisive role if they want to make it a success. This was stated by Mr P.K. Chaudhary, Commissioner and Secretary, Cooperatives, Haryana, here yesterday.

Mr Chaudhary was the chief guest at a valedictory function of the Regional Institute of Cooperative Management.

Addressing participants taking a higher diploma in cooperative management (correspondence) and a diploma in industrial management, he said, “It is unfortunate that due to bureaucratisation and politicisation of cooperative societies, the movement could not succeed to the desired extent in most of the states. But it has the potential to empower millions of members and economy.” About 100 candidates from various states are participating in the courses at the institute.

He said the Regional Institute of Cooperative Management could play a great role in strengthening the movement by organising specialised courses for officials of cooperative institutes in north India, including Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and the Union Territory of Chandigarh.

Mr Devinder Singh Thakur, chairman of the institute, said the institute was making efforts to provide integrated training in cooperative management. The trained persons should also be given increment and benefit in service, he said. Mr N. Pasricha, regional director of the institute, also addressed the participants.

Strengthen cooperative movement

The valedictory function of the refresher course for Cooperative Education Instructors of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh was held at the Regional Institute of Cooperative Management in Sector 32 here today.

Mr Rikhi Ram Kaundal, Minister for Cooperation, Himachal Pradesh, was the chief guest on the occasion. Addressing the participants, he highlighted the need for strengthening the cooperative movement, especially after the advent of multinational companies (MNCs) in the country. The detrimental attitude of the MNCs towards the cooperative business should be faced boldly he stressed.

Himachal Pradesh had taken many steps which included the decision to allow cooperatives to start small hydroelectric projects. This would not only provide employment but also bring revenue to the cooperatives.

The need was to ensure greater participation of women and youth in this movement as this, along with customer satisfaction, were the hallmarks of the movement in the southern states, where the movement was getting stronger every day, he observed.

Mr R.S. Dhillon, chairman of Puncofed, also emphasised the need to strengthen the movement since the popularity of the MNCs would sound the death knell of the cooperative movement. The need was to come together on the grassroots level and contribute towards its growth, he added.

The gathering was also addressed by Mr D.S. Thakur, chairman of the management committee, Dr N. Pasricha, regional director, RICM.
