National Cooperative Development Corporation

     The National Cooperative Development Corporation (NCDC) was set up in the year 1963 under an Act of Parliament with a countrywide mandate for planning, promotion and financing programmes for processing, marketing, storage, export and import of agriculture produce and certain notified commodities through Cooperatives. NCDC is a unique organization engaged in the development of rural agriculture sector through cooperatives.

     In the year 2002, by virtue of Amendment of NCDC Act, some new activities have been brought into the purview of NCDC namely, livestock, industrial goods, handicrafts, village and rural crafts and development of notified services such as water conservation, irrigation, micro-irrigation, animal care/health, agricultural insurance, agricultural credit, rural sanitation, drainage and sewage systems.

     Financial assistance by the cooperation to the cooperatives is routed through the state government(s) or on the guarantee of the state government(s) or directly on fulfillment of certain conditions.
