The office is huge and looks marvelous. there was no strict instruction to wear uniforms but Identity cards were a must. We reported to Mr. B R Rout the Law Manger of IOCL and our Internship Coordinator Mr. Mohd. Sohaib, the Law Officer.

We were asked about basics of contract on the first day and we were required to write all that we know about how to set up a petrol pump or LPG outlet.

We were required to read the case files and then at the end of the day sir used to ask us questions based on it. we were given a brochure to read which was going to be my project with the title- Selection of Dealers for Regular Or Rural Retail Outlet.

Both B R Rout Sir and Sohaib Sir were amiable and were very responsive at any stage where we had a doubt with a lot of patience.
