Legal Department, Tata Motors Pvt. Ltd., Pimpri, Pune. Team Strength: 5

Application Process with contact details

The application process is fairly simple.

One needs to send his/her CV along with a cover letter, clearly stating the department in which the internship is sought and the period for which it is sought along with other essential details to Mr. Panchbhai, HR Business Partner of Tata Motors, Pune at [email protected]

Duration of Internship and timings

April 15, 2016 to May 15, 2016.

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

I reported at 9.00 a.m. along with a print out of the offer letter, a recommendation letter from my college, my CV and two latest photograph at the main security gate of Tata Motors, Pimpri Plant.

I was surprised to see the strict security standards maintained in the organisation. For entering and leaving the organisation, one has to go through frisking and baggage checks.

Electronic devices such as laptops are not allowed into the organisation without a pass issued by the Security Officer.

In order to enter the organisation as a visitor, a pass is required to be issued by an employee of the organisation. Not only this, cars within the organisation need to adhere to strict speed limits and other traffic rules.

Violation of any traffic rules, including crossing any of the roads within the organisation with the traffic signal not being green, results in severe penalties.

Since the infrastructure of the organisation is huge, there are a lot of shuttle buses that take people from one block to another.

When I finally reached the office of Mr. Panchbhai, HR Business Partner, he greeted me and briefed me about the code of conduct in the organisation.

He also asked me a lot of questions about the organisation and gave me a good scolding for not being able to answer them. Therefore, it is suggested that whenever you go to intern at an organisation, be fully aware of all details about that organisation.

I was then taken to the Legal Cell where I met the Legal Manager, Mr. Kuldeep Garud who asked me my interests and expectations from the internship and handed me over the files of an ongoing case to read and analyse.

Main tasks

Since Mr. Garud was mostly busy with important work, Ms. Pallavi Bhushan, Legal Manager would assign me work daily and also keep a check on my progress.

Since the internship was meant to be a learning experience for me, my main tasks included drafting of agreements, preparation of case briefs, preparation of notes on various subjects including any notification by the Central/ State government that would impact the organisation, drafting of circulars, drafting of replies to complaints and analysis of ongoing cases.

Most of the legal work is outsourced and therefore, there was almost no scope for me to go to the court or look into the litigation of ongoing matters.

Work environment and people

Everybody was very disciplined. Both Mr. Garud and Ms. Bhushan were very helping and were ready to guide me at any point of time.

Ms. Bhushan would go through all the work done by me and suggest ways to improve it.

Along with Mr. Garud and Ms. Bhushan, there were three other people in the department.

Mr. Pundlik was the Head of the Department and was always willing to help.

The other two people were also friendly and would often have casual conversations with me.

Best things

The best thing about the internship perhaps was that it acquainted me with the culture that thrives in big companies like Tata Motors.

I think it is essential for one to intern at an MNC at least once to decide for one’s self if becoming a corporate lawyer is one’s cup of tea or not.

Also, the internship was fruitful in sharpening my research and drafting skills to a great extent.

Bad things

The only bad thing was that since I was the only intern, the work became boring at times.


No stipend

Biggest Lessons

Biggest lesson was how to manage a 9-5 desk job.

Any Other Thing



Since I am from Pune itself, accommodation was not an issue for me.

PGs are difficult to find in the vicinity of the organisation. Since the office is located in Pimpri, one could look for a PG in Chinchwad, which is close to Pimpri.

Also, since Pimpri-Chinchwad are on the outskirts of Pune, there are not a lot of places to hang out in the area.

Office Timings

My office timings were 9.00 AM to 5.00 PM. They were fairly strict as I had to punch in and punch out everyday.
