Kerala State Co-operative Employees’ Welfare Board
The “Kerala State Co-operative Employees’ Welfare Board” is constituted by the Government of Kerala for the implementation of welfare schemes for the co-operative employees in the State. It was established in 1986 by name “Kerala Co-operative Employees, Welfare Fund” exclusively for the employees working in the co-operative societies under the administrative control of the Registrar of Co-operative societies, Kerala. Later, in 1992 it was reconstituted as the “Kerala State Co-operative Employees” Welfare Board and provided more financial assistance and aid to the members who opted to subscribe to this Board. In 1996 this Scheme was further extended to the employees of co-operative institutions under other departments of the State Government viz Handloom, Coir, Milk, Fisheries, Khadi & Village Industries etc. A separate scheme for the Commission Agents of these institutions was also framed and implemented by this Board in 2001 by name “Kerala State Co-operative Commission Agents Welfare Scheme”. At present this Board is functioning efficiently and is providing relief by way of granting financial aid to the co-operative employees, who are our members and their number exceeds 50000.
