Understanding Producer Company

Producer Company is a recently introduced concept that provides an opportunity to producers (people engaged in producing items, primarily by farming) to establish a company. Producer Company can be formed by 10 or more producers, two or more producer institutions or a combination of 10 or more producers and producer institutions. Producer Company can only have equity capital, a minimum of five directors, and an authorized capital of INR 5 Lacs.

In India, nearly 85% of the farmers own less than 2 hectares of land, which is why this segment of farmers is quite disorganized and incompetent to adopt the latest technology. Idea of Producer Company was, therefore, launched to create clusters of farmers who can take the benefits of recent technologies and increase their produce.

Key-Advantages of Producer Company

Continuous Existence

Preferred Credibility

Property Ownership

Distinct Entity

Easy to Manage

Economies of Scale

Distinct Entity

Producer Company is a separate legal entity and juristic person established under the Company’s Act and thus, it enjoys a wider legal capacity as well as can own property and incur debts. The members or the directors in a Producer Company are not personally liable to the Company’s creditors.

Preferred Credibility

Producer Company ensures better credibility than a Producer Organization, as it is monitored by the Central government, while latter is controlled by respective State Governments.

Economies of Scale

Majority of Indian farmers are deprived to reap the benefits of economies of scale. With a producer company, however, farmers can work collectively at lower costs, reduced risk, and even enjoy better credit facilities.

Continuous Existence

Producer Company enjoys perpetual succession as it remains operational until it is legally dissolved and continues to exist irrespective of any change in its membership. Moreover, being a distinct legal entity, its operations are not affected by the death or departure of any of the member.

Property Ownership

Since Producer Company is a juristic person, it can acquire, buy, or sale property in its own name, while any of the members cannot claim their rights on the Company’s properties.

Easy to Manage

A Designated Board of Management controls the functioning of a Producer Company, while the structure of the Board can easily be modified by simply filling-up the relevant forms with the Registrar of Companies (RoC).
