Future of U.P. lies in One District, one Cooperative bank

Lucknow: Keeping in view the development of the state and the needs of Annadata farmers, everyone should get banking facilities. We have asked the Cooperative Department to do mapping at those places where bank branches are required. Uttar Pradesh has the largest base of MSMEs, for this cooperative banks can play a big role. We should make efforts to open a branch of the Co-operative Bank there and also link the BC Sakhi programme. Open banks in the first phase, make these banks profitable in the second phase and then in the third phase we move towards the concept of One District, One Cooperative Bank. The state government will fully cooperate in this. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath (CM Yogi) said these things in a program organized on the occasion of B-Pax membership campaign and launch of toll free number at his official residence on Friday.

He said that today Uttar Pradesh is moving forward as a good investment destination. Our One District One Product program has spread across the country. Today, to achieve the goal of self-reliance, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also says that we have to think about local for global. In this, the MSME department is carrying forward a big campaign for packaging, designing and marketing of its local products. There is a new competition that we should also contribute in increasing the local product. If co-operative banks also join this process, it will help in restoring the confidence of the general public in them.

Double engine government is taking forward the program to link cooperatives with prosperity

CM Yogi said that cooperation has been an integral part of Indian tradition since ancient times, but at one time this work of cooperation got compromised and wrong people got involved in it and the state with the largest population of the country paid a heavy price for it. paid off. We are all grateful to PM Modi who gave the status of ministry to cooperation after becoming PM again in 2019. By making co-operation a medium of prosperity in the life of the common citizen, an important step has been taken towards achieving the goal of prosperity, self-reliance and self-reliance. As the first Cooperative Minister of the country, Home Minister Amit Shah has worked towards strengthening PACS, its most basic unit, by linking it with prosperity. It is a matter of happiness for us that this membership campaign has been launched in Uttar Pradesh from 1st to 30th September and toll free number has been issued.

CM Yogi said that the double engine government is taking the program forward by linking cooperation with prosperity. Till now PACS was limited to selling fertilizers and seeds, but now it is also being developed as a Common Service Development Centre. Now other facilities will be available there.

Campaign will give new momentum to cooperative movement

CM Yogi said that in a state like Uttar Pradesh, agriculture has been its biggest prosperity. We have the most fertile land in the world and the best water resources. There are more than 2.61 lakh farmers who are associated with PM Kisan Samman Nidhi. That means we have 3 crore farmers who can join this campaign and take it on the path of prosperity and help in connecting the agriculture of Uttar Pradesh with the prosperity of Uttar Pradesh. At the time of India’s independence, agriculture accounted for more than 40 percent of the total GDP. Gradually it reduced and now it has come down to 16-17 percent, but in Uttar Pradesh it is still 25 to 26 percent. We can contribute even better in this. If the farmers get timely seeds, timely fertilizers and all the units start working effectively, then there is no reason why the Annadata farmer should not do the work of growing gold from this land. It is believed that this campaign will play an important role in giving a new impetus to the cooperative movement in Uttar Pradesh. Good people, people who are interested will choose to go through it.

Increase credit limit of PACS, link crop loans with cooperative banks

CM Yogi stressed the need to set targets regarding crop loans along with increasing the credit limit of PACS. He said that the 7500 packs that we currently have are much less than the liquidity required for the purchase of fertiliser. As per the requirement of the state, a credit limit of Rs 10 lakh is required. In this regard, immediate action should be taken and the credit limit of 7500 packs should be increased so that the farmers can get convenience. The state government will extend full cooperation in this regard. He further said that in the coming time, crop loan should be considered in collaboration with the Agriculture Department. The MSME department has also been told that under ODOP or Vishwakarma Shram Samman, when we provide money from the bank to any handicraftsman or artisan, we should link it with digital payment. If he pays his installment on time on digital payment, then there should be a system of giving incentive at the state government level on the interest earned so that it can encourage its handicraftsmen and artisans at the local level. It would be better to connect him with a cooperative bank, which will meet his small needs.

On this occasion, State Government’s Jal Shakti Minister Swatantra Dev Singh, Livestock and Dairy Development Minister Dharampal Singh, Cooperative Minister JPS Rathore, Chief Secretary Durga Shankar Mishra, Agricultural Production Commissioner Manoj Kumar Singh, Principal Secretary Cooperative BL Meena and public representatives and people associated with cooperatives were present. People were present.

There is a plan to open indigenous rural co-operative societies. There are 250 cooperative societies operating in the district to provide fertilizers, seeds and benefits of various schemes of the government to the farmers at cheap rates. There should be no problem regarding loan distribution, fertilizer and seed distribution in future, so members will be made on every committees from September 1 under B-Pax Mahabhiyan. At least 200 members will be added to each committee in this membership campaign which will run till 30th September.

Any farmer can become a member by deducting a receipt of Rs.21. The member farmer will have to buy a share bond of Rs.200. With this, the loan limit of the member farmers will be increased. Whose annual interest rate will also be less. Any member who lives in the Gram Panchayat of the Resource Co-operative Society and does business temporarily or is a land owner, besides this, wants to deposit money in the society, can become an ordinary member of the society. After becoming a member, it will be easier for the farmers to take advantage of the cooperative society.
