Following the decision, Collectors would now be acting as Additional Cooperative Registrars (ACR) for their respective districts.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik approved a proposal in this connection today assigning district Collectors with additional powers to take care of the smooth functioning of cooperative organizations in the State like Primary Agricultural Credit Society (PACS), Large Area Multi Purpose Co Operative Society (LAMPCS), Service Cooperative Society (SCS), Farmers Service Co Operative Society (FSCS), and Regional Cooperative Marketing Society (RCMS). The special cooperative power was given to the collectors under an existing provision in Orissa Co-operative Societies Act, 1962 and Odisha Cooperative Societies Rules 1965, official sources said.

While acting as the ACR, the primary duty of the Collector would be to oversee various activities of the cooperative bodies, grant of agricultural loan to farmers, distribution of seeds and fertilizers and procurement of paddy.

Thehe State Government made the move keeping in view the growing volume of work of cooperative societies after the computerisation process. The government also sees the initiative to bring cooperative societies under the direct control of the Collectors as a step towards effective management of RCMs.
