First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

OHRC is a part of Toshali Bhawan where we have many other offices such as the the Directorate of Public Prosecution, Arbitration Tribunal, Women’s Commission. the office isn’t a big one. It is compact having two portions. One included the court room and other members of the office had their working cabins.

The other portion consisted of the reception, waiting room for the parties of case, conference hall and chambers of other important officials.

Main tasks

We used to sit in court room during the case hearing and in between the cases the Hon’ble Justice asked us questions regarding the case and sometimes some provisions of the law which are widely used such as questions based on Cr.P. C, Evidence, C.P.C, I.P.C, Constitution.

The court used to get over by 1:30 and we were allowed for half an hour break. After that were were given case files to read and make reports on that.

Work environment and people

At the office everyone is quite friendly and understanding. They immediately help out with any small problem or query we have thus making us feel comfortable.

Best things

Sometimes the Hon’ble Justice gave us some important knowledge about various topics which we didn’t know helping us to gain more knowledge and we were allowed to have a look at the case files that was going on thus making it clear how to apply provisions of law in real life.

Bad things

There is no canteen as a results lunches has to be skipped or one has to walk really far to have food other than that there is nothing bad about the office.



Biggest Lessons

Being honest and sincere to yourself and the work allotted definitely reflects to the authorities.
