Cooperation means working together. The principle of cooperation is as old as human society. It is truly the basis of domestic and social life. Co-operative effort is ultimately the group instinct in man, which enables him to live together and help each other in times of stress and strain. Co-operative is always the child of necessity. This paper discusses the principles and progress of cooperatives in India. It also analyses the growth of cooperatives in Dakshina Kannada (DK) district. The analysis, based on organisations’ perspective, shows clearly the absence of a well-defined policy on employee training. Such an absence is responsible for the poor status of training in the co-operative system. Most of the beneficiaries are not getting benefits of Yashaswini scheme, because of some rigidity in this scheme. Yet, there is no other peoples’ organisation so potentially powerful and promising to build proactive leadership through democratic process as co-operative movement. Cooperatives alone can reach last person in society. In this regard, the paper makes some strategic suggestions to strengthen cooperatives in India in general and DK district in particular.
