Duration of internship and timings

21st December, 2015 – 25th January, 2016

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

There is no specific dress code here.

There is no specific office, since the center is undertaking several projects funded by government. There are different offices at different places in Gwalior.

I was allotted with Project ChildLine 1098.

The office was on the ground floor of the building that had four big rooms.

One was the Chief Coordinator’s Office, two of the rooms consisted of workstation for the employees, and the entrance room was the reception area.

I was asked to report by 10 AM on my first day and was asked to submit a hard copy of my CV, registration form and recommendation letter from my college.

I was introduced to the team and some children which study under the CIDorg free education programme.

The coordinator briefed me with regard to all the work that is to be done.

All the employees there had their respective special case ID numbers and I was provided with a list of such numbers.

Then, I was allotted an employee who was responsible to give me work for that day.

Main tasks

My main tasks included going through various case studies that happened in the recent past and scrutinise its legal aspect and drafting a report for submission in annual report.

At the office I dealt with the the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Amendment Act, 2006. There were regular classes taken by coordinator for the same.

I also went to the incidents of violence and apathy against children.

All the employees there were allotted specific regions of the city for promotional and awareness campaign and I worked with all of them.

Most of these were rural, aloof areas and I had to prepare Research on all of them that consisted of every possible information on that region, ranging from its background to important phone numbers and from political parties offices to police stations.

Deadlines were crucial and had to be taken seriously. There was no scope of wasting time.

At the end of the internship I had to submit all of my work for evaluation.

Work environment and people

The people there were very organised and focused.

There was rarely any day when someone was absent or left early.

All of them were very approachable, friendly and helpful.

They helped me where I went wrong and appreciated me for my good work.

Everyone ate lunch together.

Best things

The best part was that I was never idle there.

The work environment was really good and good work was always appreciated.

I always had some or the other work.

I got to understand how the juvenile system actually works.

Learnt a lot from this internship.

Also, I learnt the essence and importance of deadlines

Bad things

No bad things there because there is no monotone in work and hence never boring. There is always new story to deal with and learn new things.



Biggest Lessons

I got to be in a really professional environment and learnt to respect deadlines.

It also extended and increased my information about the juvenile justice law, lesser known parts of our country and also introduced me to the ground realities of the legal issues that persist in these areas and how they are dealt with.

Any Other Thing


Overall Rating



I am from Gwalior, so I stayed at home. But for PGs there are so many options around the office.

Office Timings

10 A.M. – 4/5 P.M. Timings are flexible as there is a break for lunch of one hour.
