Q1) What is a Cooperative Society?

A co-operative society is often a voluntary association of individuals who come together with the intention to work together and to promote their economic interest. These societies work on the principle of self-help as well as mutual help. The primary goal is to provide support to the members. People of the same interest come forward as a group, pool their resources, utilise these resources in the best possible manner and derive a common benefit out of it
