I sincerely hope that the website will help all those involved in the elections including Co-operators,chief executive officers, Returning officers, Departmental officers and all office bearers of 36,000 Co-operative societies .The earnest efforts of the commission will go a long way in providing timely advice and guidance to all the needy people who are interested in free and fair elections to the co-operative societies in the state.
