It says that “multi-State co-operative society” means a society registered or deemed to be registered under this Act and includes a national co-operative society and a Federal co-operative.” The Act provides for the formation of both the types of cooperative societies viz primary (with both individual and institutional members) and Federal Cooperatives (with only institutional membership). The main objectives of the society are to work in the interest and welfare of its members in more than one state. It is not necessary that a society should have branches in more than one state, it may have branches limited to one state and it shall not cease to be a multi-state co-operative society, so long as it serves the interest of members in more than one state.
