Industrial Cooperatives - Auto


To uplift the economic conditions of the poor Auto Drivers of all categories and also to make them owners of the Autorickshaws through hire purchase system, Autorickshaw Drivers Co-operative Societies have been formed.

Auto Service Cooperatives Societies have been formed to provide employment to the Auto Rickshaw Drivers and to make them owners of the auto after recovering HP Loan dues in easy monthly instalments.  There are 43 Auto Service Societies functioning in the State and out of these, 15 Auto Societies have been organized under TAMCO (Tamil Nadu Minorities Development Corporation Limited) Scheme to provide employment to the youth belonging to minority communities.  So far 645 auto-rickshaws have been issued to the members @ 6% rate of interest under TAMCO scheme.
