There is no universally accepted definition of a co-operative. In general, a co-operative is a business owned and democratically controlled by the people who use its services and whose benefits are derived and distributed equitably on the basis of use. The user-owners are called members. They benefit in two ways from the co-operative, in proportion to the use they make of it. First, the more they use the co-operative, the more service they receive. Second, earnings are allocated to members based on the amount of business they do with the co-operative. In many ways, co-operatives resemble other businesses. They have similar physical facilities, perform similar functions and must follow sound business practices. They are usually incorporated- under state law by filing articles of incorporation, granting them the right to do business. The organizers draw up bylaws and other necessary legal papers. Members elect a board of directors. The board sets policy and hires a manager to run the day-to-day operations. But in some ways, co-operatives are distinctly different from other businesses. These differences are found in the co-operative's purpose, its ownership and control, and how benefits are distributed. They are reflected in co-operative principles that explain the unique aspects of doing business on a co-operative basis. CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETY

A co-operative society is formed by the people of limited means for self help through mutual help. It is set up to protect economically the poor sections of the society. It is set up for cooperation, not for competition. The motto of a society is self help, without dependence on other business units.

According to Herrik,"Cooperation is an action of persons voluntarily united for utilizing reciprocally their own forces, resources or both under mutual management for their common profit or loss." According to Mr. Plunket,

"The cooperation is self help made effective by organization." Co-operative Society
