About JASCOLAMPF

The Jharkhand State Co-operative Lac Marketing & Procurement Federation Ltd. (in short “JASCOLAMPF”) is the only apex commodity co-operative body in India specifically meant for Lac established in the year 1963 for the overall development of lac industry in the tribal dominated region.

The idea of co-operative enterprise in lac was mooted in 1962 when sticklac price had crashed to its lowest bottom for many decades. There was the apprehension that lac would go out of cultivation entailing permanent damage to this source of earning portance to tribal economy and also to the employment potential of the tribal population. In order to improve the economic condition and to help the tribal population engaged in the growing of lac from the exploitation, the State-trading Corporation of India was brought in to buy seedlac at fair price. This fair price being proportionate to the minimum export price fixed by Govt. of India was much above the prevailing market price during the year 1962. Therefore, it was considered expedient to organize cooperative lac marketing federation for the benefit of lac growers.

    

The objective of this federation was to buy sticklac from growers through primary cooperative societies working at the village level, at price proportionate to the price of seedlac offered by the STC. Thus the lac growers would get price incentive and support price. Since Jharkhand is the primary lac growing state, Jharkhand was selected as the venue for the experimental enterprises. On the recommendation of the study team constituted by the Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt. of India, the state cooperative lac marketing federation ltd. was set up in Sept. 1963 with Headquarters at Ranchi. JASCOLAMPF is committed to excellence in quality. JASCOLAMPF is a body of the lac growers, by the lac growers, for the lac growers.

   Initially it is proposed that ten Broodlac distribution center would be established. All these centers would be housed at LAMPS warehouse so that no extra capital cost is involved. Proper training shall be provided to warehouse keeper, and suitable modification of warehouse shall be made to ensure that broodlac stored at the warehouse remains intact (i.e., does not deteriorate in quality).


   Assistance in Setting up co-operative credit society – This co-operative credit society shall provide finance for purchase of broodlac to farmers/ lac growers. Against stick lac sale proceeds, loan of co-operative society shall be adjusted lac growers would be assured of fair price of their produce from JASCOLAMPF.To assist Government in introducing “LAC CROP Insurance Scheme”. This would ensure minimum return to the lac growers in the event of crop failure. It is proposed that 80% of premium would be paid by state Government and balance 20% premium by the lac cultivators. Adjustment for farmer’s premium contribution shall be made out of stick lac sale proceeds.
