Union government is all set to enroll  156 post-graduates under the prestigious Prime Minister's Rural Development Fellows Scheme.

The  fellows have to spend  two years' tenure of fellowship in the tough environs of 78 districts affected by left wing extremism (LWE).

They will be placed in the Naxal-affected districts of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Maharashtra and Odisha covered under the Integrated Action Plan — a project of the Planning Commission and the Home Ministry to intensify development work. They would coordinate and evaluate the programmes being implemented in the region.

The youths include 59 engineering graduates and seven medical graduates. Others are from streams such as literature, linguistics, science, law, commerce, social and economic and agriculture, computers and journalism.

In the age group of 22 to 30, most of them have a work experience of just about two years and will be given a remuneration of Rs. 50,000 a month in the first two months of their training and Rs. 65,000 a month which the Ministry of Rural Development will bear.
