FORMAT of Application for Registration of a Cooperative Society West Bengal

The process of establishing a cooperative society involves several crucial steps, one of which is the submission of an application for registration to the Registrar. This pivotal step is governed by Section 9 of the Cooperative Societies Act, which outlines the requirements and procedures involved in the application process. Let’s analyze the key provisions stated in this section:

1. Submission of Application: According to Section 9(1) of the Act, individuals or groups seeking to establish a cooperative society must submit their application for registration to the Registrar. The application should be prepared using the prescribed format, which is Form I. This form ensures the uniformity and consistency of the application process across different cooperative societies.

2.Signature Requirement: The application must be signed by the applicants themselves. This signature signifies their consent and commitment to establishing the cooperative society and abiding by the provisions set forth in the Act. It also serves as an acknowledgment of their responsibility in fulfilling the legal and administrative obligations associated with cooperative society registration.

The application for registration is a crucial document that initiates the formal process of establishing a cooperative society. It serves as a formal request to the Registrar, who plays a vital role in overseeing and regulating cooperative societies. The application must be carefully prepared, ensuring accuracy and compliance with the prescribed format, to avoid any unnecessary delays or complications during the registration process.

The submission of the application in Form I provides essential information about the nature and objectives of the proposed cooperative society, as well as details about the founding members or applicants. This information helps the Registrar in assessing the suitability of the cooperative society for registration and determining its compliance with legal requirements.

By requiring the signature of the applicants on the application, the Act ensures that the individuals initiating the cooperative society are fully aware of their roles and responsibilities. This helps establish a sense of accountability and commitment among the founding members, laying a strong foundation for the cooperative society’s operations.

Once the application is submitted to the Registrar, it undergoes a thorough examination to verify compliance with the relevant provisions of the Cooperative Societies Act. This examination includes scrutinizing the objectives, bylaws, proposed management structure, and financial aspects of the cooperative society. If the Registrar is satisfied with the application and finds it in accordance with the Act, registration is granted, and the cooperative society is officially recognized as a legal entity.

In conclusion, the application for registration of a cooperative society is a crucial step in the establishment of such an organization. It serves as a formal request to the Registrar and provides essential information about the proposed cooperative society and its founding members. By adhering to the prescribed format and obtaining the signatures of the applicants, the application demonstrates the commitment and readiness of the applicants to establish and operate the cooperative society in compliance with the Cooperative Societies Act.
