Development Opportunities in the States through Cooperatives:

Cooperatives can make a major contribution in the development of rural economy. In meeting their members needs cooperatives enhance incomes and secure livelihoods for their members and their communities. Capacity building, training and education remain critical for cooperative development, and strengthening networks is crucial. Strengthening the cooperatives at root level will help in poverty reduction, followed by employment creation, improved food security, women empowerment, social integration, creation of rural markets and human capital development.

The state of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh come under “cooperatively under developed State” category as classified by the NITI Aayog. The best efforts made by the State Government is providing – Irrigation facilities, Free Electricity, Scheme Loan Waiver to farmers, subsidised seed etc. have boosted the Agricultural Sector and this in-turn will yield best crops raising more demand for NCDC funding mostly in Storage and Agro Processing etc. This will further raise more working capital requirements for Federations / DCCBs / LSCS etc.

Participation in IICTF

In line with mandate of NCDC for promoting export of cooperative products and also taking a cue from the first ever AGRICULTURE EXPORT POLICY, 2018 of Government of India, NCDC embarked upon holding the first ever India Internatonal Cooperatve Trade Fair (IICTF). The event was held in Pragati Maidan from 11th to 13th October 2019 and organized by NCDC with Telangana as one of the State Partners in IICTF.

145 Indian Cooperatives from all states/UTs across the country participated in this event with 214 booths and 47 Foreign Exhibitors from 35 countries (including developed countries such as USA, Canada, UK, Spain, Germany, Japan, Australia, etc.) of six continents participated in the event with 54 booths. One of the major objectives of this trade fair was to sign the Memorandum of Interest (MoIs) between cooperatives to promote the business amongst cooperatives and provide a platform where these cooperatives interact with each other and share their interest areas.

There was active participation from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh States. Nearly 15 Cooperative Federations/Societies from Telangana & Andhra Pradesh State including Animal Husbandry, Dairy Development & Fisheries Department, GoTS participated in the Trade Fair.

Telangana state also receives the ‘Award for Excellence’ based on criteria selected by a Selection Committee constituted for the purpose by Shri Piyush Goyal, Hon’ble Union Minister for Commerce and Industry and Shri Dhansingh Rawat, Hon’ble Cooperation Minister, Government of Uttarakhand.
