Karl Marx said “When an ideology possesses the common man, it acts a powerful weapon of social transformation.” The Co-operative venture was based on this principle and the Co-operative movement in our state was the Brain Child of Utkal Gourab Madhusudan Das who has started Consumer Co-operative at Cuttack in the year 1898. There after the Co-operative Credit Structure took birth in the year 1903 at BANKI and now it has spread all over the whole state. The growth of Co-operative sector basically depends upon the self reliant spontaneous, strong and vibrant actions of the leaders in front with utmost honesty, dignity and commitment as majority of the members are less associated and conversant with the functioning being predominated by a particular group. As a co-operator I have come across so many odds & evens and therefore I do welcome all the co-operators to lead the co-operative movement of the state with a dedicated commitment and request the members to enjoin the movement with responsiveness.
The dream, I have seen to prove this Bank as an example for others getting schedule status and to the best of my effort, I must shorten the time gap to have it with an oath to achieve the eligibility requirements and for which I solicit the co-operation, blessings, supports and well wishes of all concerns in general and the members in particular.
