 Amit Shah,  serving as the Minister of Cooperation, has reaffirmed his commitment to strengthening the cooperative sector by effectively implementing policies at the grassroots level. 

Shah has held this portfolio since its inception in July 2021. Shah emphasized that while foundational work for the sector's development was laid during his previous term, the next five years will focus on the practical implementation of these policies. 

This includes a 100-day development plan for the cooperative sector. Notable achievements under his tenure include amendments to the Multi-State Cooperative Societies Act, the introduction of Model Bylaws for Primary Agricultural Credit Societies (PACS), and the creation of three multi-state cooperatives for exports, seeds, and organic products.

The cooperative community will have to keep an eye out for this 100-day plan and how the implementation will affect their operations.
