The idea of co-operative took concrete shape in India for the first time in 1904, when 'Co-operative Credit Societies Act 1904' was passed, amended in 1912 and 1919, which has widened the scope of the co-operative movement in India. The co-operative banking sector in the Indian Economy holds a distinct identity, as it is the only institution of micro credit dispersion. The phenomenal growth of co-operative enterprise in recent years is a positive proof of the fact that among various financial institution agencies, they have been recognized as the best for supplying unexploitative, cheap, sound and dynamic credit to small borrowers, professionals, artisans and the weaker sections of society. Due to certain changes in the banking sector and new economic policies, the co-operative sector in general and Urban Co-operative Banks (UCBs) in particular, have undergone a crisis. At the same time the failure of some good Schedule Banks and Urban Banks has also attracted the attention of the people and raised the question of security of their funds.
