JL Nehru IFFCO memorial lecture

The Cooperative Movement in India is a legacy of India's first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who had an immeasurable contribution in promoting and propagating the concept of "Cooperation" in India. He was a firm believer of Cooperative Philosophy. He visualized cooperatives as a powerful means for bringing about the socio-economic transformation in the Country. His vision on the "Cooperation" made him one of the greatest cooperative thinkers of his times. The philosophy propagated by him still holds good in modern times as well. In order to commemorate his cooperative ideals and to honour Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, IFFCO has instituted a lecture series known as "Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial IFFCO Lecture" from the year 1982. The lecture is organised Annually and for delivering the lecture an eminent person is invited. The Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial IFFCO Lecture is generally organised during/around the cooperative week which is celebrated during November 14-20 of every year.
