“Cooperatives in India has failed but Cooperatives must succeed”, as quoted by the Agriculture Credit Review Committee in 1954. After 50 years from the above comments still it remained most relevant to the Indian cooperative movement. Few Cooperatives in India have performed well while few could not. Why? The reason is right or wrong decisions by managers and successful or failure direction, monitoring, controlling, reviewing decisions by directors and shareholders. Cooperatives are considered shield for weak and hence Government takes specific and additional care in cooperatives thorough state action and special legislation. The legislation also empowers State to intervene and control. And hence it can also be presumed the responsibility of State in failure or success of cooperatives. However for the time being it can be ignored on assumption that the State power has common and equal or uniform effect on specified cooperative sector. Even though it is observed that State has in many cases its favour affirmative or negative in political mood for a cooperative.
