Allahabad Bank Employees’ Co-operative Credit Society Ltd.
The earlier concept of Holiday Home was Guest House type accommodation with caretaker and kitchen facility in tourist places, where people could enjoy their long vacation by spending less money as compared to hotel tariff. In pursuant with this, in Nineties, we had our Holiday Home in Shimultala. Now a days, as a result of socio-economic reforms, the earlier concept has been changed. As a co-operative society, our aim is to provide secured but economic and budget type accommodation in different hotels in various tourist spots of India with moderate and reasonable as well as lower rate than that of Holtel’s Tariff Chart. Any budget-concious tourist can avail this facility. Nevertheless, we are still maitaining earlier type holiday home with kitchen facility in Puri only.
ALLAHABAD BANK EMPLOYEES’ CO-OPERATIVE CREDIT SOCIETY LTD. took birth in 1990 with the primary objective of ‘Self-help and ‘mutual aid’ among its members through exercise of thrift and saving for creating funds for lending.
Of the members, by the members and for the members, the Allahabad Bank Employees’ Co-operative Credit Society Ltd. (ABECCS Ltd.) has been trying, since its birth, to follow the principles of voluntary participation, self-administration, self-reliance, democracy, transparency, acquisition of knowledge and training and working in unison with other Co-operatives for the valued causes of Co-operative movement.
GLIMPSES OF THE PAST
The presently-gleaming organisation with an aureole around it, however, had a very humble start and a humble past to which we should always have a respectful remembrance.
