First Day Formalities Initial Impressions

As the first day is always an exciting day of every internship so I was also excited. After all the formalities of attendance and documentation, a judicial officer came and we had an introduction then he informed us about the official workings of PSHRC and also told us about its work nature and hierarchy.

Then he gave us a project write up which we had to submit till the last day of internship.

Main Tasks

The main task at PSHRC was to protect the rights of a person and to solve their cases. Also, we were asked to do a survey during our internship.

Good Things

The staff of PSHRC is very cooperative and each person there is of very good nature that they had helped us in every way. They never said no whether we asked about the same thing, again and again, they cleared all the doubts.

Bad Things

There is nothing bad about PSHRC but the working hours of the office are too high as so many officers are there, so there becomes hosh posh of the work.


No stipend

No accomodation was provided by PSHRC.
