The Government of Karnataka has long been a pioneer in scaling and implementing key innovations that have gone on to be implemented nationwide. Indian Administrative Fellowship is believed to be one such endeavor. The Fellowship was first launched in Karnataka in July '21 with 10 Fellows placed across ten state departments. The cohort focused on co-steering critical systems reforms, including the creation of technology frameworks in Women & Child Development, Go-to-market strategies and brand creation for FPO produce, and Agritech innovations for farmer-beneficiaries among others. The inaugural cohort graduated in December 2022, after a valedictory ceremony in the presence of the Honorable Governor of Karnataka, Shri Thawar Chand Gehlot.
The inaugural cohort of The/Nudge IAF graduated from the program, post a succesful 18 month term anchored in delivering impact interventions in collaboration with critical departments in the Government of Karnataka. The felicitation ceremony was done in the presence of the Hon'ble Governor of Karnataka Thaawar Chand Gehlot at Raj Bhavan.
