Name of Organisation, Location city, Team Strength
State Information Commission, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh
I went to the office and was asked to write an application stating my willingness to intern there.
The address is: State Information Commission, Madhya Pradesh: Suchna Bhawan, 35-B, Arera Hills, Bhopal (M. P.), PIN – 462011
Duration of internship and timings
1st – 24th July, 2016
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
As I previously only interned at the district and sessions court of Ashoknagar, MP, the infrastructure at the Information Commission was completely different. It felt like an office right out of the TV show, ‘Suits’.
We were given instructions as to what kind of work we were going to do here through the course of the internship.
1. Study case.
2. Observe proceedings at the Information office.
3. Interview RTI activists.
We were expected to submit a report at the end of the internship.
Work environment and people
Friendly but strict supervisors.
1. Short working hours, so you can enjoy the city in the evening.
2. Opportunity to interact with bureaucrats of MP government.
3. Less work load.
No such bad thing, but sometimes the Law officers were too strict and rude.
The NLU tag doesn’t work everywhere.
I have a friend who lives in Bhopal, so I stayed in his home. But people who don not know anyone in the city can stay at PGs which are easily available nearby.
10 am to 2 pm. And yes, they were very strict about it. You can’t be late in the morning or leave early. You HAVE TO be on time!
