Cooperative Deptt issues NoC to UMMCL for operations in JK
JAMMU: The Cooperative Department of Jammu and Kashmir has issued NoC to Unati Multipurpose Multi State Cooperative Society Limited (UMMCL) for operations across Jammu and Kashmir.
The NoC was issued to UMMCL by Secretary Cooperatives, Yasha Mudgal after more than three months of discussions and deliberations, in presence of Regional Director, NCDC, Col Ashish Mohan and Registrar Cooperatives J&K, Shafqat Iqbal.
On behalf of UMMCL, the NoC was received by its promoters Jyoti Saroop and Vikrant Dogra.
In her address, Yasha Mudgal said that UMMCL is a proposed multi state cooperative working in places like JKUT, Ladakh UT, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Uttrakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Rajasthan. She highlighted that the core objective of this cooperative society is to build self-sustainable agri supply chains with its model of FARM-FACTORY-FORK.
She said that UNATI which is one of the celebrated cooperatives in India will help newly formed FPOs and cooperatives in JK-UT in terms of market linkages, processing technical know-how and much needed handholding.
She further said that this tie-up will boost the morale of 100s of newly formed FPOs and Cooperatives in JK-UT.
Speaking on the occasion, Jyoti Saroop said that the major suffering in the agriculture sector is the unorganized value chain and as a result the farmer being at the bottom of this value chain earns less.
He added that UMMCL has plans to integrate the whole value chain at one platform by reviving the traditional supply chain to boost agri-economy.
