Formation of a Co-operative Society  A Co-operative Society can be formed as per the provisions of the Cooperative Societies Act, 1912.  At least ten persons having the capacity to enter into a contract with common economic objectives, like farming, weaving, consuming, etc. can form a Co-operative Society.  A joint application along with the bye-laws of the society containing the details about the society and its members, has to be submitted to the Registrar of Co-operative Societies of the concerned state.  After scrutiny of the application and the bye–laws, the registrar issues a Certificate of Registration.
