DEHRADUN, 4 Aug: A one-to-one dialogue programme was organised today in the second phase by the Registrar, Cooperative Societies, Uttarakhand, Alok Pandey, with the secretaries of Udham Singh Nagar and Uttarkashi, at the Registrar’s Office in Miyawala, here. This programme was organised through virtual medium.

Registrar Pandey is conducting a dialogue programme with the secretaries of district-level cooperative societies across the state. During this, the secretaries present detailed reports on their functioning.

In today’s programme, the committees reported on the one-time settlement scheme, progress report on new members, the progress of Jan Aushadhi Kendras, CSC Centres, etc. It was reported that there is good response to the One Time Settlement Scheme. So far, more than Rs 48 lakh have been deposited in the societies. Along with this, 2700 new members have joined the cooperative societies in the district of Udham Singh Nagar and the process continues.

Alok Pandey sought reports from all the secretaries regarding what more could be done in their cooperative societies so that gas agencies, petrol pumps, guest houses could be operated by cooperative societies.

The secretaries of all cooperative societies were instructed to prepare new projects to increase the income of the societies. The Registrar suggested that the societies doing good work should come together and create a new brand for the Uttarakhand cooperative sector.

Along with this, Pandey instructed the Shakti Farm Cooperative Society that high-quality quilts manufactured in its area by other private producers could be adopted and manufactured by the committee. Employment would be generated as well as income. The quilts made in the Shakti Farm area are in high demand in foreign countries as well.

In the second shift, the Registrar interacted with the secretaries of the committees of district Uttarkashi and gave instructions in the field of horticulture. He said that work on making jam, jellies, marmalade and apple vinegar could be done by the committees. In the areas where rajma, pulses and rice are produced, it should be bought directly from the cultivators by the committees. The red rice and Rajma of Uttarkashi are in huge demand across the country.

The committees working on jams, jellies, marmalade and vinegar would be sent on a training tour to Maharashtra to upgrade their skills.

Joint Registrar MP Tripathi instructed the secretaries of all the committees to prepare new projects at the committee level soon.

The dialogue programme will be organised every month to keep the initiative going.
