Annual Report pertaining to the Department of Cooperation for 2005-06 1.

Introduction :- The theory and concept of Cooperative dates back to 19th Century when the International Cooperative Alliance (ICA) was first set up by thinkers of cooperative ideology. The year was 1895. In India, the British Rulers formally enforced the Co-operative Societies Act in the year 1904. This Act was further amended in 1912 which facilitated the cooperative society to indulge in lending of credit, deposit mobilization and in the process discourage exploitative private sector money lending system. The Cooperative Movement in Sikkim was introduced with the enactment of Cooperative Societies Act of 1955. After joining the Indian Union, the existing Act was replaced by the Sikkim State Cooperative Act 1978 and Sikkim State Cooperative Societies Rules 1981.
