Co-operative societies, though delineated by formal boundaries based on laws and rules, are shaped by the social context in which they are born and operated. This study details how these dynamics are governed and, in turn, affect the organisational processes in the two Oilseeds Growers' Co-operative Societies in MP. The author argues that if the individual is not an atomised entity, then the democratic foundations of the co-operative organisation have meanings only within the specific power structure and institutional process.
