http://www.indianexpress.com/story/11546.html –  a fantastic story of a sort of a farmer co-operative without the bureaucratic hassles of a co-operative – famers are using a 2002 amendment in the Companies Act to their advantage and formed a Pvt Ltd company run co-operatively, replete with Directors, CEO, others to their advantage – and are loving owning a company.

I’ve written to the journalist wo wrote this story to help us get in touch with the NGOs which helped these farmers come together and manage the leagal maze. We’d like to setup something similar in Delhi, starting with Microfinance operations for the community of people living on the fringe of our urban society – helps at homes, car cleaners, chowkidars, aayahs, others.
