The Prime Minister’s Rural Development Fellows (PMRDFs) serve district administration in improving service delivery and interface with marginalised sections of the population in backward and isolated regions of India. By their work in field, as well as through their simultaneous participation in an academic programme, PMRD Fellows also enhance their capacity in programme planning and implementation, gain field experience, acquire professional knowledge in development practice and become capable development facilitators.

Driven by the spirit of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ (Together with all, Development for all), PMRD Fellows work with the vision of a developed local society of “involved women, productive youth, empowered and inspired people”, clean villages with an augmented natural resource base and flourishing agriculture, sustainable livelihoods, vibrant institutions, robust infrastructure, advanced technologies and effective market linkages.

Currently there are 226 PMRD Fellows working in 111 districts across 18 states

PMRDF Scheme is an initiative of the Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD), Government of India. For more details, please visit http://rural.nic.in/pmrdfs

This blog is managed by the PMRDF Support Cell, MoRD.

  1. There are people here who have mentioned about some of the innovations they made. For example, there is someone who has mentioned about creating a proposal on model village or convergence of various schemes with Nrega. Do you keep a repository of all such practices/innovations?

  2. Why only FOUR days are given to the Young & Brilliant Educated citizen of the Country to apply for such a Big National Level Policy Application & Execution ???

    Is the Present Govt not making fun of the National Level Scheme/Policies and playing with the career of the Young talented citizen of the country… ???

    Is this the way & should there be only FOUR day “Notification of the Govt is published on 26 Nov 2013 and Last date for closing to Apply for “Prime Minister’s Rural Development Fellowship (PMRDF) 2013 is fixed as only 30 Nov 2013. ??????

    shame on the part and mentality of the Administrator/Officer deputed to implement such National Level programme.
