New Delhi : The Narendra Modi government at the Center has decided to form a new ministry before the cabinet expansion.

The Ministry of Co-operation will provide a separate administrative, legal, policy framework to strengthen the cooperative movement. The Ministry of Co-operation will work to streamline the process of ease of doing business for cooperatives. This will help the cooperatives to reach the grassroots level and cooperative societies will be able to connect deeply with the people.

Cooperative Societies will expand

The ministry will simplify the processes of 'ease of doing business' for cooperatives. It will also help in spreading a true people based movement. The Ministry will work towards streamlining processes for ease of doing business for cooperatives and development of Multi-State Cooperative Societies (MSCS).

Formed after the announcement in the Budget.

The Union Government has indicated its deep commitment to community based developmental partnerships. With the formation of a separate ministry, another announcement made by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in the budget will also be fulfilled.

Rajya Sabha MP, JP Nadda also applauds the step on twitter and says, it will strengthen the legal and policy framework.

All Eyes On Cabinet Reshuffle

The first cabinet expansion in the second term of the Modi government is expected on Wednesday. There has not been an official announcement about this. It is discussed that the swearing-in ceremony will be held at Ashok Hall of Rashtrapati Bhavan at 6 pm on Wednesday. Narendra Modi started his second term as Prime Minister in May 2019 with 57 ministers. According to sources, it is firmly believed that in this cabinet expansion and reshuffle, special attention will be given to Uttar Pradesh and Bihar and at present, many ministers have two ministries each and steps could be taken to reduce the burden of these ministers.
