About National Institute of Rural Development & Panchayati Raj (NIRDPR):
The National Institute of Rural Development (NIRD), an autonomous organization of the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India, is the apex body for undertaking training, research, action research and consultancy assignments in the rural development sector in India. NIRD has had its origins in the State of Uttar Pradesh, now Uttarakhand, when two separate institutions, i.e. Central Institute of Study and Research in Community Development at Mussoorie and Trainers Training Institute at Rajpur were merged in 1964 and the National Institute of Community Development (NICD) came into being. The NICD has been renamed as NIRD subsequently. NIRD has contributed immensely to the rural development sector by developing the capacities of RD and PR functionaries. NIRD has academic linkages with reputed national and international organizations dealing with rural development. It is located in the serene rural surroundings of Rajendranagar about 15 kms, away from the historic city of Hyderabad in Andhra Pradesh. The Institute celebrated its golden jubilee with the President of India as the Chief Guest in December 2008. Her Excellency the President of India, Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil delivered the Golden Jubilee Lecture. Her Excellency hailed the National Institute of Rural Development for emerging as one of the premier institutions of the country over the last 50 years, with a well-known training set-up for rural development managers and as an established centre of excellence.
