The “Office of Central Registrar of Cooperative Societies” functioning under the Department of Agriculture & Cooperation, Ministry of Agriculture, handles the work of registration and management of multi state cooperative societies. The number of multi state cooperative societies has crossed 1400 on account of which it has become crucial to have a speedy mechanism for disposal of applications for registration/amendment, effective monitoring and record keeping. At present the information like status of applications, copies of notices/orders and list of multi state cooperative societies is available on the ministry’s web-site.
