Duration of internship and timings
Duration of internship differs from college to college. In few colleges,its only for 15-21 days (after every semester) i.e. twice in a year,and for a few it is 30-35 days, after every 2 semesters i.e. once every year.
We were required to do it once every year for 30 days. My internship started on 8th June, 2015 – 8th July, 2015.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
On the first day you have to reach on the time they prescribed for you.
After reaching there, you will have to fill up your details in their registered, and from that day on you’ll have to sign your attendance, on a daily basis. In the initial few days you’ll have an interaction session with the officials, i.e. joint secretary,law officer, and deputy general secretary.who will tel you more about how the commission works.if possible you’ll be able to attend one of the proceedings of a case.
Their main motive was to impart us with the practicality of what we theoretically studied by the medium of various case studies.we were provided with booklets ,and case files on the basis of which we were to prepare a report which was to be submitted at the end of our internship,and on the basis of that report,we got our internship certificate.
Work environment and people
All the people working in the commission were helpful,and we were able to learn one or the other things from them,from time to time,we used to go to them,there experiences were an eye opener to us.
We got to see the proceedings of a case. How they take statements, the rules that they follow, procedures.
All the people working their are either police official or judges.
The only work assigned to us was of analyzing the cases, we weren’t able to explore for 30 days, all we did was sit in the assigned place, reading case files and nothing else.
No field visits.
Now I know how the commission works, how rights are infringed and how people could be helped. There are a lot wrongs because of which our rights are violated, we don’t realize it, but that is what happens.
