Conceptual Approach to Co- operativeCo-operatives represent the human qualities of ourselves; honesty, democratic consensus mutual concern and self-reliance. Our day starts with the fresh milk, the sugar we use in the preparation of sweets, the vegetables which add taste to our lunch, the jute and cotton made products which are the elements of comfort and fashion, the education our children are imparted, the fish and poultry products that we have for dinner, the juicy fruits we enjoy and the chocolates given to kids to put them sleep; all have some contribution of the co-operative movement. Indeed, co-operatives have touched our lives in more ways than one. Here comes a Graphical over-view of the eventual development of the relationship among Co- operative, Co- operative Movement and Co-operative Bank.

Co-operative Movement

An autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common, economic, social and cultural/needs and aspirations through a jointly owned and democraticallycontrolled enterprise

Voluntary movement of the people, carried out democratically by pooling together their resources or carrying on the given activity, with the purpose of the purpose of achieving or securing certain benefits or advantage which given to people cannot virtue and values such as self-help, mutual help, self-reliance and general goods of all

Co-operative Bank

A financial entity which belongs to its members, who are at the same time the owners and the customers of their bank where banks are often created by persons belonging to the same local or professional community or sharing a common interest.

Co-operative banks differ from stockholder banks by their organization, their goals, their values and their governance. In most countries, they are supervised and controlled by banking authorities and have to respect prudential banking regulations, which put them at a level playing field with stockholder banks. In Bangladesh Co- operative organization are supervised by the Governments office for Co- operative.

Features of Co- operative BankHere we reveal the special features of Co-operative Bank which make it different from other forms of financial institution. Its distinct features are:

1. Customer-owned Entities

In a co-operative bank, the needs of the customers meet the needs of the owners, as co-operative bank members are both. As a consequence, the first aim of a co-operative bank is not to maximize profit but to provide the best possible products and services to its members. Some co-operative banks only operate with their members but most of them also admit non-member clients to benefit from their banking and financial services. 2. Community Based Co-operative banks are deeply rooted inside local areas and communities. They are involved in local development and contribute to the sustainable development of their communities, as their members and management board usually belong to the communities in which they exercise their activities.

3. Profit Allocation

A significant part of the yearly profit, benefits or surplus is usually allocated to constitute reserves in case of Co- operative Bank. A part of this profit can also be distributed to the co-operative members, with legal or statutory limitations in most cases. Profit is usually allocated to members either through a patronage dividend, which is related to the use of the cooperatives products and services by each member, or through an interest or a dividend, which is related to the number of shares subscribed to each member. 4. Democratic Control Co-operative banks are owned and controlled by their members, who democratically elect the board of directors. Members usually have equal voting rights. These are the fundamental principles of co- operative society or bank. All the co- operatives round the globe are to adopt and follow these under the respective legal condition.
