Union Home Minister and Minister of Cooperation Shri Amit Shah will address the “National Symposium on Production of Improved and Traditional Seeds through Cooperative Sector” organized by the Bharatiya Beej Sahakari Samiti Limited (BBSSL) in New Delhi on 26th October 2023 (Thursday). Shri Amit Shah will also unveil the Logo, Website, and Brochure and distribute membership certificates to BBSSL members. During the symposium, the objectives of BBSSL, the importance of seed production through PACS, and the role of seeds in the productivity and nutrition of crops, along with the role of cooperative societies in the upliftment of small and marginal farmers, will be discussed.

BBSSL came into existence following the thrust given by the Union Home Minister and Minister of Cooperation for the need to set up a national-level multi-state cooperative society to act as an umbrella organization for advanced and traditional seed research and production along with processing and marketing through the cooperative sector. It will provide assistance to cooperatives across the country in demand-based seed production, development of infrastructure for storage, processing, and packaging of seeds, logistics support, quality enhancement and standardization, requisite certification, and marketing of the seeds produced. BBSSL will also assist the cooperative societies in the multiplication and conservation of traditional seeds of various crops and varieties.

As another important step towards Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of “Sahakar Se Samriddhi”, quality seed production and distribution through BBSSL will increase agricultural production in the country. This will create more employment opportunities in the agriculture and cooperative sector, reduce dependence on imported seeds, boost the rural economy, promote “Make in India” and pave the way for ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’.

The symposium will begin with a presentation by officials of the Ministry of Cooperation on 54 new initiatives taken in the last 27 months to strengthen the cooperative sector. Apart from about 2000 participants from all over the country, thousands of participants will also participate in this one-day symposium through virtual medium.

Three major cooperative societies of the country – Indian Farmers Fertilizer Cooperative Limited (IFFCO), Krishak Bharati Cooperative Limited (KRIBHCO), and National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India (NAFED) and two major statutory bodies of the Government of India – National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) ) and National Cooperative Development Corporation (NCDC) have jointly promoted BBSSL.
