TIMINGS – 10 AM to 5.30 PM (Monday-Friday)
I applied for this Internship in November 2017 when I got to know about it through an advertisement which was accessible on the Official Website of the Ministry of Women and Child Development. The internship programme was divided into a short and long-term internship.
The short-term internship was scheduled from 1st December 2017 to 31st December 2017 and the long-term internship from 1st December to 31st January 2018. Thereby, I applied for the short-term internship of one month from 1st December to 31st December 2017.
I received an email from the Ministry of Women and Child Development. They notified me that I had been selected for the internship. I received my internship order via email on the same day and I acknowledged the same.
First day formalities
On reaching the Ministry of Women and Child Development, I showed my internship order in the security desk so as to enter the Ministry.
Then, I reported to Mr. D.K. Tiwary, Coordinator, Internship Scheme, Ministry of Women and Child Development, who completed my first day formalities and placed me under Ms. Ratna Anjan Jena, Statistical Adviser (Plan, Monitoring & Statistics, Parliament Matters) and Ms. Manju Mary Paul, Assistant Director (Plan Unit).
They assigned me the duties of – preparing, compiling and editing the Annual Report (2017-18) of the Ministry of Women and Child Development, collating the statistical data of the Ministry, studying and analyzing the various Child Development and Women Empowerment Schemes of the Ministry, etc.

- Collated the statistical data of the Ministry.

It was a good experience where I got exposed to a greater field of knowledge. I got to learn about the Ministry, its work culture, its various schemes, and functions. Working on the Annual Report was fascinating as I got a know-how about all the achievements, works, activities, efforts, initiatives, objectives and goals of the Ministry for the year 2017-18.
About the campus of the Statistics Bureau, Ministry of Women and Child Development, it is located in New Delhi. The Statistics Bureau is very beautiful and pleasant.
Those who got the opportunity to intern in Statistics Bureau are really the blessed ones as the Bureau’s eco-friendly and high-tech environment provides the budding legal practitioners a fruitful and productive know-how about the Ministry’s goals and objectives. I really admire and rejoice the environment of such a wonderful place.
An internship may seem intimidating, but it is important to examine one’s interests in depth so that one can be confident in all of his/her abilities. As we develop our career path, we should remember to be ourselves and let our natural light shine, seek out opportunities that reflect what we care about and want to pursue.
