Possible inclusion of your institute as PMRF Granting institute in the proposed Phase 2 of PMRF project

Dear Sir/Madam,
We are writing on behalf of the National Coordination team of the Prime Minister's Research Fellowship. As you know, PMRF is a prestigious fellowship for PhD, that is offered from 2018. As such there are only 38 granting institutes who are eligible for PMRF. The details of the fellowship can be found in https://www.pmrf.in/.
IIT Madras has been the national coordinating institute since April 2022. The phase 1 of the PMRF project is getting completed in the academic year 2023-24. The Ministry of Education has directed us to formulate a proposal for Phase 2 of the PMRF project, by being more inclusive, accommodate more institutes, and target a larger number of eligible scholars. A 17 member committee at the national level is formed, who are deliberating on how to make the selections and how to carry out the review of the PMRF fellows. The committee is considering expanding the granting institutes to the top 100 NIRF Ranked institutes.
We kindly request your institute to provide us with some essential information. To facilitate this process, we have created a Google Form where you can conveniently share the required details.
Thanks & Regards,
PMRF Support Team, 
IIT Madras
