I got the internship through internship cell of UILS but one can send internship request to their E-Mail Id or can personally call them.
Duration of internship and timings
It started fro 1st July and ended on 21st July (3 weeks Internship).
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
First impression was really very good. We met Mr. Naresh Gulati (State Chief Information Commissioner).
He welcomed us and taught us about the Right to Information act.
He told us the whole procedure of working of the State information commission.
After some time each intern was assigned one Chief Information Commissioner (CIC).
Infrastructure of state information commission is really nice.
State information commissions are the higher authority for complaining about RTI Applications.
So the main tasks was to sit with state information commissioner and see the proceedings. We got opportunity to see proceedings via video conferencing also.
Every day a new commissioner was assigned to the Interns.
Reading cases and watching state information commissioners grilling the public information officers was really a learning thing.
For getting a deep knowledge about right to information one should definitely do one internship in State information commission.
Work environment and people
Environment was really nice.
Time was flexible (10 To 1.30). Don’t get Shock.
People there was really good and it was really nice doing internship at State Information Commission.
Best thing was sitting in the video conferencing room and watching the proceedings.
There was no bad thing.
It was really a nice internship.
