New Delhi

1. POSITIONS VACANT: Administration & Procurement Executive, Bharat Rural Livelihoods Foundation, New Delhi.




Bharat Rural Livelihoods Foundation (BRLF) has initiated by the Government of India as an independent society under the Ministry of Rural Development, to scale up civil society action in partnership with the central and state governments. The Union Cabinet decided to form BRLF through its decision on 3rd September 2013 to ensure better implementation and outreach of the government schemes and programmes in partnership with civil society organizations. It came into existence as an independent society on 10th December 2013 with an initial amount of INR 500 crore to be allocated in two installments to create the corpus of this new society.


The principal objective of BRLF is to empower rural India, ameliorating the lives of its impoverished populace, especially the indigenous tribes and strengthening their confidence in the government and Indian democracy, in coordination with CSOs, Government of India and governments of various states. BRLF aims to better channelize funds allocated by governments, banks, corporates and other philanthropic foundations for various public programmes, and ensure their proper implementation at the grassroots to generate best results.


Working in tandem with civil society organisations that have a local presence, BRLF ensures that the desired results are produced through right strategies as well as efforts. BRLF supports a variety of projects across the breadth of the country, particularly in the states of Odisha, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Telangana and Gujarat that form Central India.

BRLF is a bilingual organisation, hence working knowledge of Hindi is eminently desirable. The recruitment process will be conducted bilingually.


BRLF takes pride in providing equal employment opportunities to all regardless of their race, ethnicity, beliefs, religion, marital status, gender, caste, age or special ability and aims to create and maintain a diverse workplace where equality, respect and consideration for all are a norm.
