Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami paid a courtesy visit to Union Home Minister Amit Shah in New Delhi on Saturday.
During his meeting with the Home Minister, the Chief Minister said that Uttarakhand is one of the pioneers in Primary Agricultural Credit Societies (PACS) computerization despite being a hilly state.

He said that this would certainly revolutionize the working of societies and would prove to be one of the most important reforms in the cooperative sector.
