Application Process with contact details

The head of Peoples’ Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL), Delhi is Mr. N.D. Pancholi. I contacted him in the month of march, 2 months prior to the internship. He asked for my CV and few days later I got a positive response from sir.

Duration of internship and timings

May – June, 2016

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

On the first day i.e. 1st June, 2015 we had to complete registration formalities; which included confirming our identities, registration fee of Rs. 1000 and updating our details in their register.

The head office of PUCL is located in Mayur Vihar. Its a medium size flat that has been turned into an office. The atmosphere is very professional yet welcoming.

Babita ma’am, the office incharge, was very cooperative and patient with us. We were given an introduction to the tasks we would get and how the NGO works. Also, we were given few law magazines to read about Human Rights. Although we did not meet Pancholi sir, but we were told that we would meet him on June 3rd.

Main tasks

One of the main and interesting tasks was to research about the people sitting on dharnas outside Jantar Mantar. We were quite surprised to find that few of them have been sitting there for more than 15 years!

We even attended many Seminars in which we got to interact with Ms. Krishna Kripalani, the members of Tanzeem-e-Insaaf and many more renowned judges of Supreme court.

There were regular classes held in the office in which participation was necessary. The topics or reference videos were mailed to us prior to the class in order for us to prepare ourselves in advance.

At the end of the internship, we even had to submit a research paper for which my topic was Marital Rape.

Work environment and people

The work environment was very professional. Students from different colleges like NLUs, Amity Noida, etc were there. This was a great opportunity to interact with students of other colleges. The members of PUCL family showed great support at every step.

Best things

We even enjoyed the session of Nukad- Natak held in the Gandhi Peace Foundation. It was informative along with some fun.

Bad things

No such bad things



Biggest Lessons

This, being my first internship, taught me team work, self- dependency as well as hard work. I had to work and travel with my group, yet I had to make sure I was not dominated at every step. I learnt how to put my ideas forth and respect others’ ideas as well.
