First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
First day we were asked to introduce ourselves and then we were told about working and functioning of NLSA.
First day was just a chill out day as we were not much to do except reading the bare acts provided by the office.
Office was not very big but we were made to sit in conference hall of the office with 18 more people.
