Duration of internship and timings
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
It was quite comfortable since there was a group of 5 students.
There were common formalities like wearing formals and carrying a notepad every time.
It was surprisingly a well maintained Forum with 2 floors.
The main task was to understand and learn the process as to how to file a case. What are the main points which needs to be inserted in the case and also to learn the process and format in which a file of the case can be filed. The task also includes how to make arguments and defend them.
Work environment and people
It was pretty formal working in the commission, however still managed to have interest in working as the steno used to take class of practical approach on Consumer Law and reader who then helped us to know more about the cases and questions to be asked by the Judge.
Best things were to learn about the Consumer Dispute Redressal Commissions procedure by heart and interacting with the Advocates which widened knowledge. The best thing is that we can get access to new and decide case files very easily and also the behavior of the office people was friendly.
The court proceeding were not fixed and it was not performed in proper process. Coming over of questions -answers round. sitting purposeless for long hours was just not done.
One of the best achievements of this internship is to understand easy interpretation of consumer law. I learnt many extra lessons like how to behave in a formal environment. The way to present yourself in front of a Judge and talk to Advocates.
Any Other Thing
I live in Gwalior, so I stayed at home. But there are lots of PG in Gwalior around the office of District Consumer Forum.
