Karnataka has a special place in the Indian cooperative sector, as it is one of the first states to have started the movement. We are proud to say that, the first agricultural credit cooperative society in Karnataka started in a village called Kanaginahaala, Gadag district, in 1905. In the same year, a consumer cooperative society also started in Bangalore. The state has over 4,000 Primary Agricultural societies and over 10.12 lakh farmers are benefited from these cooperatives. In Karnataka 100% villages are covered by cooperative Societies.
Karnataka is progressive in Cooperative movement. It is pioneer in bringing parallel cooperative law.
