During one of the study hour conducted during HDC Degree, I visited Ahmadabad to Amul Dairy. I was totally inspired by Dr. Verghese Kurien who had turned the Amul Diary as a White Revolution. That was the moment, I decided to step forward and make use of the potentials to create a revolution in Co-operative Sector.
My prime objective is to raise our co-operatives as a leading and dominant in comparison to others. My Dream is to provide relevant and innovative financial services to our customers, thus playing a central role in Co-operative movement.
