First impression, first-day formalities
The First impression was good, the HR department was very well managed, the first day was smooth we were made to fill in forms to get a pass to enter the prohibited area of Plant.
One has to pay for the internship. The amount depends on the number of days of internship. The structure of fees is provided at the end of this post.
The only task you have to do is to prepare a project report on the given topic. The GM of law department Mr. Kongari assigned us to SIR Shailesh Mishra who was very kind and generous to us.
He was my senior i.e. we were from the same school, he taught various nuances of the law. He taught some great things regarding labour courts of our country.
He will give you a topic according to your interest, say a topic about which you want to learn more, I wanted to learn more about the Industrial Disputes Act.
Work environment and people
Everyone working there was very professional and was very excited to see us. Definitely, after your internship, they will be your source of inspiration. The other staff members were also very supportive and affable in nature.
Your co-interns will be from different universities which will help you to have an idea about the environment of other law colleges in India.
I was living in my own house.
The best thing was the people around, legal departments office was small but consisted of amazingly talented people which made us learn a lot of many new things while doing research and while writing case analysis.
The only bad thing was the first week which was work less we didn’t do anything productive, we were made to watch the presentations of steel plant and its working and safety measures which in a way was needed for many people who were engineering but for us, it wasn’t really needed.
We didn’t even enter the Plant. Our work was in an office outside the actual Plant area.
The biggest lesson I had from this internship was one should never take a PSU internship lightly, they just didn’t give you a project to make a presentation by copying it from the internet.
They make sure that you write it all by yourself and prepare a report with actual cases of SAIL so that you understand the intricacies of the plant.
The structure of the fees is here.
