The Principle of Thrift not only signifies the idea of savings but also promotes the idea of avoiding unnecessary expenditure. This is the first step towards self-help.

All members of GI Panchayath shall believe in the principle “All for One and One for All”, according to which every member should believe that his/her burden is reduced only by addressing to the burden of his fellow members. Self-help and mutual aid is the essence of GI Panchayath.
