In keeping up with the tradition of providing individuals a platform to grow and enhance their skills in various fields, the DU Mock Indian Parliament is organised. The event provides its participants with a stage to voice their opinion about various policies of the government.
At the end of two days of a rigorous and policy oriented debate and discussion, the participants are well acquainted with the policy making process. They often arrive at creative and effective solutions to the problems at hand and present the same in form of an appropriate document.
