Abstract:

Since the turn of the twentieth century, there has been an effort in India to replace the usurious moneylender with institutionalized forms of rural credit. This attempt became more critical with the coming of the Green Revolution 1960s and the associated increase in demand for rural credit. Primarily the Government of India has relied on the Cooperative Movement in its effort to institutionalize the supply of rural credit. This thesis examines some of the major problems and obstacles encountered as well as corrective measures taken with respect to the cooperative movement. Author
