First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
P.K Singh Sir was the first person with whom we interacted, he was expert of the law and asked us certain questions and explained about cartel and combination.
Everyone in the commission is expert in their field.
Then Ashok Raj Gupta sir (Asst. Director, Advocacy Dept.) called us and assigned our mentor and we were asked to confirm the research topic (Note: You may change or continue with the research topic submitted by you in internship application).
My mentor was Dr. Kumkum Budgujjar Ma’am (Joint Director, Law Division).
Again she is expert, also very good and friendly mentor. I have discussed my topic with her and she helped me immensely.
Interns at CCI are given a separated Central Air Conditioning intern desk, a telephone extension (you can call anyone within the commission) and average speed WiFi connection.
There is no work you have to do.
First 4 days will be your orientation rotation, in which you will be interacted with all the department/division, they will discuss with you about the functions and working procedures.
Then you have to write a stance note (Case Law analysis). Ashok Sir will give you a rejected case (the cases, which does not violate or attract any provision of the Competition Act), and you have to write stance note in pair of two interns. One will write for Commission and another have to write for informant.
Then you have to work on your research topic and finally on the last day you have to submit your research paper and present a PPT presentation on your research topic and findings (Honorable Chair person, members and other officers may be present there, they might ask you questions based on your topic, be prepared to answer their queries).
There is marking system and according to which the grades are awarded to interns.
Out of total 30 marks, 10 are for Stance Note, 10 for presentation and rest 10 marks at discretion of mentor.
Everyone at the Commission is awesome.
They are very friendly, helpful and intelligent.
The best thing of my internship at CCI was again the awesome people and my mentor. They always helped me throughout my internship.
Due to confidentially they won’t give you ongoing cases.
But still nothing is bad there but you will feel bored if you are not doing anything on your research paper.
On the last day itself CCI will award you your certificate and a cheque of 10,000 Rupees.
