'Office of Co-op societies will be made high-tech'

"To modernise primary co-operative societies, air-conditioning system will be installed at the offices of all co-operative societies in the State," said Karnataka State Co-operative Marketing Federation President M N Rajendrakumar.

Speaking after inaugurating a special training camp for presidents and managers of agriculture co-operative societies in Belagavi division, here on Saturday, he stated that the offices of co-operative societies would be made high-tech, using modern technology, while the staff should also be trained in tune with the corporate system.

In Dakshina Kannada district, co-operative societies are not just selling fertilisers, but are offering banking service, electronics goods sale, and medicines sale, he noted.

Karnataka State Co-operative Customers' Federation President G P Patil lamented that co-operaive societies have lost their glory, as they could not compete with multi-national companies. Only those societies who change their functioning style as per the changing needs would make profit, he said.

Bagalkot DCC Bank President Ajaykumar Sarnayak stressed the need to promote co-operative stalls like Janata Bazaar.

Shivakumargouda Patil, Basanagouda Patil, I S Patil, S Y Patil, R Shivaprakash, M P Shellikeri, and others were present.
