Prime Minister’s Rural Development Fellowship (PMRDF) is a short term work opportunity (two to three years) for young women and men who already possess some level of academic and professional expertise. They serve the district administration in improving programme delivery and interface with the marginalized section of the population. Fellows are given a stipend as well as professional experience and structured learning opportunities. PMRDF scheme has the twin objective of providing short term catalytic support to the District Administration in Integrated Action Plan (IAP) districts as well as to develop a cadre of development facilitators who will be available as a ready resource for rural development over a long term.

Currently there are 143 PMRD Fellows in 78 IAP Districts spread over 9 States of India.

  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.
