The Government of Assam in the year 2010 took the greatest initiative in the entire country to establish and constitute a teaching and residential University in the state of Assam to secure all the stakeholders of the Cooperative Management, education for widening knowledge and learning, training for enhanching skill and managerial capacity, research for searching innovative spheres, promotion for building cadres of professional managers, functionaries to man,organize, develop ever growing numbers of cooperatives and to make efforts for all-round development of co-operative movement and rural economy.The Assam state assembly passed the Rajiv Gandhi University of Cooperative Management Bill, 2010 recently for setting up the states’ first such university exclusively for the cooperative sector. The university, to be named after former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi is coming up in upper Assam’s Sivasagar district. The university will offer courses on co-operative management and, at the same time, will train existing manpower in both the government and the private sector to manage the cooperative sector. The university will also carry out research and studies on government projects in the cooperative sector as well as suggest measures for proper management and implementation of schemes. The move comes amid demand for proper management of co-operative agencies under the government. Several co-operative banks and development agencies in Assam are on the verge of closure due to poor management. But the state government has seceded to take up steps to rejuvenate the co-operative agencies to boost the state’s rural economy.
