“The Assam Co-operative Silk House Ltd” was the result of 5 visionaries of the world famous silk village Sualkuchi namely Late Parashuram Mahajan, Late Kaliram Karikar, Late Mahiram Mahajan, Late Harbilas Karikar and Late Kamala Kanta Das dating back to the year 1935. They envisioned a dream of starting a Co-operative Society for the welfare of the weaver community of Sualkuchi. Their dream came true on the 25th of August, 1941 (Reg. No - 3 of 1941), when “The Assam Co-operative Silk House Ltd” was registered as a Co-operative society under The Co-operative Societies Act.
