How Big was the Office

They have separate building which consists of three floors in which ground floor has one library and 1st floor consists of all the offices of higher authorities and 2nd floor has different departments which includes complaint cell, and NRI cell and also one more library.

First two floors are quite spacious but 2nd floor is untidy because all the files and documents are keep there.

First Day Impression and Formalities

There is nothing like that first impression remains for last for first day you will be assigned with no work, you are just suppose to sit in the library and asked to read reports and NCW act.

When I walked inside the National Commission for Women I found many complainants were sitting and waiting for their turn.

Good infrastructure. First day get it confirm your internship period by your cell coordinator. First you get NCW Manual to read.

Main Tasks

The basic work of the C&I Cell is to directly interact with the aggrieved parties, listen to their complaints and then register them.

Interns are also allowed to directly converse with the complainants. By this the interns come to know about their problems and it is very much practical. This in turn helps a lot in gaining experience.

After registration of the complaints, the C&I cell is supposed to file a BTR, i.e., Brief Transmission Report, which includes the summary of the case and is directed to the authorities concerned in the case.

My topic was ‘To improve the living condition of North-eastern citizens’.

Work Environment, People

Co-ordinators are very helpful and very friendly they will treat you as your junior and they also share their experience with you and you can ask any doubt no matter how small it is, you will get a lot of things to learn

Best Things

Best thing about this internship was that the timing were flexible and the office is located in Khan Market.

I enjoyed every bit of khan market. This internship was the main reason of my so much shopping!

Bad Things

No access to WiFi and it was a monotonous internship.

Also the research work done was just done for the sake of submitting a research paper.



What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues

Most of the interns were from law schools sharing a lot in common, so we all had great fun together by organizing various trips on weekends and pizza parties at nearby outlets.

Biggest lessons

This place may not provide us with stipends but the experience which it gives is literally awesome. Apply only if you have interest in learning new things and you want to work for the welfare of women.

Hard work is acknowledged and you can really learn a lot.
