Soochna Seva is all about information FOR the people BY the people themselves. The unique feature is the deployment of field agents for public information dissemination and digital empowerment of the target population. Known as Soochna Sevaks, they would be the central force of engagement in the project and would drive the success of the project towards its stated objectives. To recruit a dedicated and committed bunch of Soochna Sevaks, DEF has instituted a fellowship programme known as the Soochna Seva Fellowship for young enthusiasts who are willing to make a difference. The fellowship is for a duration of 6 months, which the fellow has to spend in the target district itself working at the grass-root level resolving issues and performing the required tasks. After completion of the 6-month period, the fellow has to submit a detailed report inclusive of all documents, case studies, photographs and videos. Based on a subsequent performance assessment, the tenure of the fellow may be extended purely at the discretion of the organization.

The applications would be extensively scrutinized for compliance to required skills & competencies and the eligible candidates would be contacted for a telephonic interview in which their motivation and inter-personal skills would be assessed. Subsequent to their clearing this round, they would be asked to report at the District Office where a secondary assessment on ability to handle digital tools would be scrutinized. Selected candidates would then be intimated with a conditional offer letter. On acceptance of the same, they would have to sign a contract with DEF which would bind them from leaving the fellowship before the stipulated time period. Should they do so, they would have to forfeit the entire amount that has already been paid to them as remuneration. The contract would also enforce strict confidentiality in the sense that the fellow should not use any of the data collected during the field visits for any other purpose nor should this data be stored, transmitted or copied to any other device.
