“In a historic move, a separate ‘ministry of co-operation’ has been created by the Modi government for realizing the vision of ‘Sahkar se Samriddhi’…it will help deepen co-operatives as a true people based movement reaching up to the grassroots,” said a statement by the cabinet secretariat.

“The central government has signaled its deep commitment to community based developmental partnership. Creation of a separate ministry for cooperation also fulfils the budget announcement made by the finance minister,” said the statement.

In the past, the government has renamed several ministries to expand their work profile. In 2014, the ministry of environment was named as the ministry of environment, forests and climate change. Similarly the ambit of the ministry of animal husbandry was expanded to include fisheries, animal husbandry and dairying.
