As per provision in the byelaws of the society it is compulsory to call monthly meeting. Since travelling is not possible in the lockdown period, difficulties are arising in conducting monthly meetings of all co-operative societies and officers/ office bearers can't attend the meetings.

“Considering the present lockdown situation all co-operative societies are permitted to conduct their monthly meetings through video conference or the digital options till the period of lockdown.
