Dear Sir,
In social development sector in general initially person can't understand the Social dynamics, decision making, planning, and management because it is very complex subject. Even I worked at grass root level up to age of 30 though I just focused on physical activity and just forget about its broad impact on society/community. Even I observed & heard same things from my colleagues, they shared me after 10 to 12 year of experience now they develop the sense to understand the complex issues in community, internal dynamics, decision making, now in age of 35 - 36 they have capacities to understand the social dynamics, impacts, broad view of activities and all round social development issues etc.

In Prime Minister Rural Development fellow Scheme to allow the participation of experienced social professional the age limit should be extend up to age of 45 years to achieve the noble cause of the project/ scheme.
