About PMRDFS

We can reduce poverty and empower people only if we have exceptionally bright and motivated young professionals with leadership potential to work towards betterment of marginalized groups in disadvantaged regions of the country. PMRD Fellows Scheme is an initiative of Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD), Government of India (GoI) in collaboration with State Governments. The Fellowship has the twin objective of engaging young professionals to work with District Collectors in improving the development programmes as well as to build them as a cadre of development facilitators, who will be available as a ready resource for rural development activities over a long term.

Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), as a partner of MoRD is requested to facilitate and anchor the selection and training of the PMRD Fellows.
