1st impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

CUTS International has three branches (CUTS, CITEE and CCIER) and on the first day, I went to the main office. There I was asked to submit the required documents. After submitting the same, I was taken to the CART office and there I met my supervisor. Thereafter, I was given my workstation and asked to go through the programs that CUTS had undertaken.

The office is small but it is good.

Main Tasks

They asked me to compile the Supreme Court cases related to Consumer Protection. Apart from this, I did research on e-commerce and corporate scams. I assisted them when they had a project launch and I was asked to make a report on it.

Work Environment and people

The people are quite nice and friendly. The work environment is informal so is quite good to work.

Best Things

You get to do research work and it might help you to get a better insight of the consumer protection legislation. The staff is the backbone at CUTS, they are fabulous and always ready to help.

Bad Things

The biggest problem was that there were no other interns which made my month long internship boring. There was a lot of time when I was idle and I was not a part of their field work. Even the books in their library are old.

Stipend

No Stipend

Accommodation

I am a resident of Jaipur and thus, I had no problem of accommodation.
