Delhi Society Registration

A Co-operative society is formed by the persons who are having identical needs and agree to work for the common interest of the persons joining the society. Hence, the main purpose for registration of society is to promote the economic interest of the persons who form the society. In this article, we look at the process for Delhi Society registration.

Co-Operative Society

The word “co-operation” means working together with others for a common purpose. As per the Co-operative Planning Committee, the word “Co-operation” is defined as a form of organisation in which persons voluntarily associate together on the basis of equality for the promotion of their economic interests.
