First Day Formalities Initial Impressions
On the very first day, there was an orientation where I was briefed about the establishment, functioning as well as the procedures involved in approaching the Tribunal for redressal. People there were quite friendly and interactive.
All I have done there was that I attended the court proceedings (There were 2 courts) and a library was there where I could find all kind of cases related to the central government employees and I used to spend most of the time reading the judgements there.
The library was the best thing and attending the court proceedings exposes one to the practical complexities of the legal profession. Apart from this the staff there were very friendly and interactive and the building was good.
All I had to do was attending the court proceedings. Though it sounds good, it was too boring
I am a resident of Hyderabad and yes the working hours of the Tribunal are flexible so for me, accommodation or commutation was not a big issue
I learned how to behave in a court and the art of being patient as I had to sit in the courtroom for hours together.
