Formation of the Fishermen Cooperative Societies Federation Ltd Hyderabad
With the formation of the Telangana state the institutes covered under Ix schedule of the A.P reorganization Act 2014 have been divided into two separate entities. Accordingly, the AFCOF has been divided as Andhra Pradesh State Fishermen Cooperative Federation and Telangana State Fishermen Cooperative Societies Federation (TSFCOF). The TSFCOF has been registered on 25-02-2015.
In the united Andhra Pradesh, the AFCOF had two activities, i,e sale of diesel oil to the fishermen through 9 HSD oil bunks located in coastal districts and maintained 7 fresh retail outlets in Hyderabad . The Federation was running with income generated from the above two business activities.
