The Head office of the society is located at proper Mahabhairab road near the historical place of Mahabhairab Temple. The society is having other two branches at Rubber Bagan and GNB Nagar in Tezpur. The society had initially only 15 members and today it is having 302 members. The Society started with the business of PDS & Non PDS with the working Capital of Rs 1125/- and was able to earn Rs 30.60 as Net Profit and the total asset of the society stood at Rs 80.52 only. At present the society’s total capital is Rs 1,08,28,052.00. The society does not have any outstanding loan.

Presently, the society is dealing with PDS & Non PDS business. Under PDS business 234 families including members and non–members are benefitted under different scheme of Rice such as AAY, NFSPH, etc. including S.K. oil. The society has been successfully doing non PDS business by providing qualitative consumer goods at reasonable prices to give relief to its shareholders in particular & consumers in general at a time when the price rise has pushed the people to the wall. The society is having three retail outlets for this purpose.
Besides adhering to the prevailing provisions of the Acts & rules as well as guidelines issued by the Govt, from time to time with right spirit, the Society has been providing commendable services toits members and non-membersby way of supplying good quality consumergoods at very reasonable prices compared to the prevailing market price.

Aspirational Districts:

Emphasis is now to contribute to development of Aspirational Districts identified by NITI Aayog in the State viz: Mamit. The State Government has forwarded the ICDP DPR of Mamit district (Aspirational District) to NCDC for consideration.

New Initiatives in the Region during FY 2020-21:

Prospects for Agricultural Sector :

  • 57% of the potential Wet Rice Cultivation (WRC) area is yet to be developed.
  • 57% of the potential Wet Rice Cultivation (WRC) area is yet to be developed.
  • Government has given focused attention for developing WRC areas under NLUP and other programmes.
  • 80% of the potential area identified for oil palm is yet to be brought under cultivation./li>
  •  There is growing demand for maize for poultry and pig feed in the state.

Prospects of Horticulture Sector:

  • The agro climatic conditions of the state are suitable for horticulture crops. Mostly produce is organic due to less use of fertilizer and pesticides, etc. The state should capitalize on this advantage.
  • State Govt. is working on aggregation of produce and has promoted 10 FPOs.
  • The department has introduced fruits like dragon fruit, passion fruit and strawberry, which can get more value for the farmers.

Prospects for Animal Husbandry sector:

  • Demand is not a constraint for the sector. Commercial units are required for exploiting the potential.
  • Besides Government of India schemes like NLM, the State Government has been promoting poultry and piggery under NLUP.
  • Milk processing plants have been established in four districts of Aizawl, Lunglei, Kolasib and Champhai. But these are not operating at optimum level.

Doubling of Farmers Income:

  • Government of India has decided to reorient its interventions in the farm and nonfarm sectors to double the income of farmers by 2022 and seven broad strategies were laid out for achieving this target. The agriculture & allied activities contributed 18.75 percent during 2015-16 and recorded a growth rate of 3%. Faster growth in agriculture is necessary for stronger, sustainable and inclusive growth in the State.
  • The growth in agriculture sector is adversely affected due to low productivity in the prevalent jhum system. Besides, other major constraints in agriculture development and income growths are low seed replacement, low consumption of fertilizers, and low availability of farm power, dearth of potential area connectivity, marginal land holding, poor market linkage and lack of assured irrigation. The state government has been making efforts to improve the income of farmers by promoting animal husbandry sector under its NLUP, DEDS, and NLM. Besides, there has been emphasis on creating irrigation facilities and enhancing coverage under micro irrigation. Besides, food processing sector is also being accorded priority.

Development Opportunities in the State through Cooperatives:

Farm Sector Innovations:

Promoting innovations in the field of Agriculture, transfer of technology, sustainable scientific methods of farming is required to ensure increase in production, productivity and income of the farmers. The projects should aim at awareness creation about technology & markets know how and demonstrate bank ability of new innovative concepts in agriculture and farm sector. Opportunities are:
a) Water conservation and low cost rain water harvesting technology under tough hilly terrain.
b) Integrated Fish-cum-Paddy Culture.
c) Promotion of Beekeeping for sustaining rural livelihood.
d) Crop Intensification through Rice-Pea Cropping System.
e) Training programme on scientific methods of cultivation of mandarin orange, soil test based fertilizer and management of soil borne disease in crop plants.
f) Capacity Building on promotion of Aromatic and Medicinal plants among members of the FPO’s.
g) Doubling farmer’s income through quality maize and rice seed production.

Success Stories:

Champhai Town Multipurpose Cooperative Society Ltd., F. Lalchhandama, Secretary, Ph. 9615712657, 0383-235310
The erstwhile Champhai Chhungte Farming Co-operative Society was established way back in 1994. It was established by a group of farmers especially passion fruit-growers for their mutual benefit. A land was acquired at the distance of 18 km from Champhai to Aizawl road where bamboo, teak and jatropha were planted. In 2012, the society was transformed into a Primary Agricultural Credit Cooperatives Societies (PACS). The society became Champhai Chhungte Primary Agricultural Credit Cooperative Society (CCPACS). Selected members of the society underwent trainings conducted jointly by the Mizoram Cooperative Apex Bank Ltd (MCAB) and NABARD. Citizen with higher intellectual capability, broader outlook and possessing technical skills were enrolled as members. Now the society composed of members varying from cultivators, computer experts, journalists, and professors. The name of the Society was changed to Champhai Town Multipurpose Cooperative Society Limited with PACS functionality in December 2015.

Activities of the Society:

(a) Credit Sector: Collecting deposit (Pigmy) from various members of the society and disbursing different types of loan to farmers, labourers, and small businessmen.
(b) Education Sector: Society envisioned to open education center where training centres for computers, automobiles, handicrafts etc. will be incorporated. To provide farming and poultry techniques to youth along with mainstream conventional education so that manual labour will not be looked down upon by younger generation. To impart sports and physical education in these centres so that younger people earn livelihood from these disciplines. In view of the above objectives and to provide more educational opportunity to younger generation, the society established a higher secondary education centre in 2013, named Champhai Higher Secondary School, with arts and commerce subjects.
(c) Trade & Commerce Sector: In order that society members and general public could avail daily commodities at cheap rates and the farmers could sell their produce at remunerative rates, the society opened a variety store in Champhai town.
(d) Agriculture and Allied Sector: The society envisaged (i) to establish a marketing department for the purpose of marketing agricultural produce. (ii) to establish different cooperative farming such as cattle rearing, poultry farming and other related small-scale industries. The Society is pursuing these objectives relentlessly. A land of 100.8 bighas was obtained from State Government after a prolonged hardship due to the sheer size of land required. The society has spent about Rs 5.00 lakh for obtaining LSC for the land. At present, water irrigation system is chalked out and a small cottage is built in the land. In 2018, the land was opened for cultivation, the first step in achieving the above objectives.
(e) Health & Calamity Sector: Man’s work capacity depends on his health. The society provides a healthcare scheme to members and staff. And to non – members provide healthcare through insurance scheme.
