SRINAGAR: The Cooperative Department of Jammu and Kashmir has issued NoC to Unati Multipurpose Multistate 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 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.
Speaking on the occasion, Yasha Mudgal said that UMMCL is proposed multistate 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 also remarked 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 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 whole value chain at one platform by reviving the traditional supply chain to boost agri-economy.
