The National Institute of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj (NIRD&PR), Opening 2017

The National Institute of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj (NIRD&PR), an autonomous organisation under the Union Ministry of Rural Development, is a premier national centre of excellence in rural development and Panchayati Raj. Recognized internationally as one of the UN-ESCAP Centres of Excellence, it builds capacities of rural development functionaries, elected representatives of PRIs, bankers, NGOs and other stakeholders through inter-related activities of training, research and consultancy. The Institute is located in the historic city of Hyderabad in Telangana state. The NIRD&PR celebrated its Golden Jubilee Year of establishment in 2008.

skill development and behavioural change of all the functionaries that contribute for the welfare of the rural people, either directly or indirectly, is a strategic requirement and catering to the millions of such functionaries in a time bound manner is a challenge. An “out of box” approach of leveraging the technology and other management tools, to build the capacities of the functionaries and also bring behavioural changes in the public; and promoting innovation and technology diffusion can be a way forward. The task is not small. Therefore collaborating, networking and joining hands with all “like-minded” people and Institutions is absolutely essential. NIRD&PR will become a platform for such an alliance.
