On the first day, I reached the office which is situated in Chanderlook building 5th floor. We need to write down our details before entering the office. The office area is well furnished with fully Air Conditioner.

It gives us a real feel of working with government officials when we enter the office. After that, a person comes and asked to fill the particulars forms and an application. After that, I was oriented by Ms. Harsha Garg who was the Legal Consultant at NCPCR, on my first day.

She gave us a brief information of National Commission for Protection of Child Rights and told us that NCPCR is a statutory body under the control of the Ministry of Women & Child Development, Government of India.

Other Info

After working in NCPCR for one month, I am very much aware of the child rights and exact functions of the commission. The environment of the office was friendly and inspiring. All the employees were treated with respect.

The intern got the opportunity to actually watch work being done in a government office; work that helped people at the grassroots levels. NCPCR with its continuous and great efforts ensures that each child born in this country gets the best start in life, thrives and develops to his or her potential.

The commission with its effective and efficient working ensures that all Laws, Policies are in consonance with the Child Rights. I have also realized, more importantly, that there is lots of work to be done in the world-work that sometimes involves facing the dark side of reality, but that somebody has to step up and do.
