Duration of internship and timings

8th – 19th June, 2015. 2 weeks

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

The office looks quite good, with well finished infrastructure. At the entrance they’ve used trash from trains to make Chhattisgarhi Art. As it’s the DRM office, work is quite good. Atmosphere, as I found, is friendly and all the people are cooperative.

The location of office isn’t far away from main road hence easily locatable. Though the cabin in which I used to sit had no A/C, but they provided me with Cooler.

Main tasks

The main task they might indulge you in are proof reading, reading files that are going for appeal, Making briefs for consumer petitions, Checking the validity of power of attorneys’ etc. Moreover, you get work as per your interest in the work.

Work environment and people

People are good, cooperative, well mannered. One can work under CLA’s of other departments as well, simultaneously (for example, If you are working with Law officer of Commercial department, the people are flexible enough to work with Officers of department handling service matters)

Best things

Flexible timings. Easy working hours. Though you do not get to go to court, but learning about the intricacies of documents like PoA is equally important.

Bad things

You don’t get to go to court. Working experience isn’t enriching unless you are interested in learning.


No stipend

Biggest Lessons

Though you might not work at so-called best internship hubs, and you might not have a group of 15-20 interns with you to hang out, or stipend to spend it on food and shopping. But what you get when you work whole-heartedly is, a good experience, a bit of knowledge, and some time apart from law firm internships.

Overall Rating



I stayed at my home.

Office Timings

Office timings are from 10:30 to 5, and flexible. You can have an hour break for lunch and rest. But as in every internship, its important to work.
