Prior work experience:

  • Worked as medical officer in an NGO,NIREEKSHANA which works for HIV affected patients, worked in catholic health association of India,hyd…worked as medical officer in few private hospitals like Asian institute of gastroenterology-hyd , Apollo clinic electronic city Banglore, etc

One key work during fellowship

  • From 2010 to 2014 around 5600 bore wells have been granted to beneficiaries by the lift irrigation department in our district… However up to march 2015 only 1100 bore wells are functional (20%)

What was done:

  • Under collector guidance I got the opportunity to work as a coordinating officer between various departments involved in this completion of the project like lift irrigation, agriculture, electrical and of course contractors and beneficiaries..first issue of payment has been sorted out by organizing camps at Gp level and collector himself coming to the meetings and motivating the beneficiaries… Each beneficiary has been counseled individually…after payment comes the contractors role and the departments role..all are given weekly and monthly targets and reviewed thoroughly..minor disputes have been dealt with the help of tahsildar…a mobile number is kept separate for addressing grievances and I handle it personally…I get at least 5 calls per day and the grievances are put on collectors table And addressed as quickly as as possible….


  • The impact is that in one year the percentage of functional bore wells has been increased from a mere 20% to 60% and we are hoping to bring it to 90% in next six months
