Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday has announced new ‘Ministry of Cooperation’ to buff up the cooperative movement in the country.

Notably, this announcement has come a day before PM Modi’s Cabinet rejig is scheduled to take place on July 7 at 6 pm in New Delhi.

According to sources, the expansion of Cabinet will hail new 'young' faces at significant positions.

Terming it a historic move, the GoI says the Ministry of Cooperation has been created to strengthen the vision of ‘Sahkar se Samriddhi’ (Prosperity from Cooperation) to emphasize community-developmental projects.

This ministry will provide a separate administrative, legal, and policy framework for strengthening the cooperative movement in the country. It will help deepen co-operatives as a true people-based movement reaching up to the grassroots.
