Cooperative Awards

The Board of Directors in the year 1982 had approved giving a best cooperator Award on an annual basis, to an individual who has contributed maximum towards development of Cooperative Movement. The amount of Cash Award was fixed at Rs.10,000/- along with a citation. This amount was enhanced by the Board in the year 1988 from Rs.10,000/- to Rs.25,000/-.

The Board of Directors in the year 1993, while approving IFFCO Cash Award on Cooperation for the years 1990-1991 & 1991--1992 to the Best Cooperators, inter-alia approved that in addition to the "Best Cooperator Award", "IFFCO Sahakarita Bandhu Award" may also be instituted from the year 1993-94. The amount of both the Awards namely "IFFCO Cash Award on Cooperation to the Best Cooperator", (ii) "IFFCO Sahakarita Bandhu Award", was fixed at Rs.51,000/- each from the year 1993-94 to be presented every year. In the year 1997 the Board of Directors decided that the name of the Best Cooperator Award should be changed to "Sahakarita Ratna Award". In the year 2000 it was decided that the amount for each award be increased from Rs.51,000/- to Rs.1,01,000/-.
