The Department of Cooperation with help of MAP_IT has implemented Integrated Cooperative Management Information System (ICMIS) where common citizens who are keen to form cooperative societies in the state can apply online for its registration. The Department has a total of 63 Cooperative offices across the state. It is a unique initiative in the cooperative sector where entire functionalities of registration of cooperative societies are automated using ICT. Various tools/debugging techniques have been adopted to design the system and make it user-friendly. All steps are computerised, i.e., registration of the application, online payment of share capital and member’s entry fee, e-Sign of certification, system-generated order, real-time tracking of application and SMS alert at various stages. Complete process re-engineering is done to make it user-friendly. Record keeping and tracking of applications have become easy and the entire process of registration is transparent and hassle-free. The paperless process has zero administrative cost to the department.
