Work environment, people

Work environment of RLEK is very homely very one works together in the office.

The best things AND the bad things

Working experience is homely. The work is done in real world and the Chairman gives lectures on Bonded Labour Evolution Act and Environmental Protection Act, 1986.

Field work is very hard and certificate is given till the date you work. However, the wi-fi is not that good and hence, the work lingers on.



Accommodation etc. What did you to do chill in and around the office and the place of stay?

I lived in Dormatary of RLEK which had 10 girls living in one room and common washrooms which led to the problem of less timing and no privacy.

The fooding was good and it is on the option of the interns if the want to take up the food facility.

Dehradun is a wonderful city to chill. We want to Mussorie, Sahashatradhara, Forest Reserves of India, Phoanta Sahib and many more.
