This comprehensive database aims to strengthen the cooperative movement in India by providing single-point access to information on about 8 lakh cooperative societies across various sectors, facilitating better planning, policy-making, and implementation. Developed in a phased manner, it encompasses data on society particulars, operation areas, financial data, and more, gathered from State and District Registrar Offices. The database serves as a crucial tool for enhancing the efficiency of the cooperative sector, promoting expansion, and addressing community challenges towards realizing the vision of an ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat’​​​​​​​​.
