Set up in 1976 under West Bengal Co-operative Societies Act, 1973 the West Bengal Tribal Development Co-operative Corporation Limited, under the patronage of the Backward Classes Welfare Department, Govt. of West Bengal, has been functioning exclusively for the development of the tribals. This organization administers mainly through 155 Large Sized Multipurpose Co-operative Societies (LAMPS), which operate at the block level as primary co-operative societies in 15 districts of the state, excepting Kolkata, Howrah, Nadia and Cooch Behar. LAMPS in the state, despite their lapses, is the only organization at the grass root level working sincerely for the poor tribals.
 
The West Bengal Tribal Development Co-operative Corporation Ltd., under the aegis of the Backward Classes Welfare Department, Govt. of West Bengal, was set up as an apex body of the Large Scale Multipurpose Cooperative Societies (LAMPS), under the West Bengal Co-operative Societies Act, 1973 (now WBCS Act, 1983) in 1976.

Through the decentralised machinery of the WBTDCC's regional offices in Purulia, Bankura, Jhargram and Jalpaiguri and branch offices at Malda and Suri, it plays a pioneering role in promoting socio-economic development of the tribal population of the state.
 
This Corporation is mainly responsible for looking into all non-credit and development-oriented functions of LAMPS and also for extending credit for tribal members to meet their consumption and social requirements.
