How Did I Apply?

Jaipur is my hometown so I basically applied with an application and a recommendation letter from my college(required). I submitted the hard copy and after that we had a talk with the member secretary who initially was not in the favor for the interns because of her experience with the past interns. So, she interviewed and gave me 2 bare acts to learn within a day and said she will give this internship based on my ability to complete the given task. The next day we had a round of QnAs and I was selected. 

First Day Formalities, Infrastructure And First Impression

On the first day the information about the working of the commission, its powers, its quorum and case briefs were given. The staff was very helping and they had a library from which we could have bare acts and learn more about the cases in the commissions. 

After this, there was a briefing of the types of case entertained in the commissions and how judgment is given. They gave some files to read and understand. All the work was done in Hindi. Obviously this internship experience is before corona period, so all the work was done offline.

Internship Experience 

My main work as an intern in RSCW was to read files in the morning before hearings commenced and prepare a brief for my own and then later on to attend the hearings of the same cases and analyze what decisions are made and how the cases are handled. After the completion of one day’s hearing, one could have a talk with the quorum i.e. Member secretary, S.I. Ma’am, ASP Ma’am and the Honorable judge (only if they have time). Otherwise you can leave after taking the permission or you can stay and read things from the library. The commission, after considering, can also take you to where the rescued women/girls live.

Work Environment

The work environment was good and the staff was friendly and helpful. They helped us whenever and however possible. Everyone was good with their work but the most admirable work was of Honorable Justice Ajay shukla and member secretary Alpa Ma’am. There was family court just on the upper floor, so we had the opportunity to visit their and had talks with Different lawyers.

Accommodation, Commuting To Office

Since, I am a Local of the Jaipur city I have my own place to live. I commuted mainly by two-wheeler, bus, auto or Ola/uber bike. The commission is on the main road and that is why it is easily available. There are PGs nearby where one can live.

Good Things

We got to know the powers and areas of jurisdiction of the state women commission and had the opportunity to interact with the judge, M.S., S.I. and A.S.P. which helped in the enhancement of our knowledge. The commission is at a very good place you can go out nearby to eat after work.  

Bad Things

There were no identity cards so no high security. Also the people for family court went through the hallway thus creating a ruckus on some days. Though you don’t need lawyer for applying the RSCW, there were lawyers trying to bug the people at the commission.

Stipend

None

Overall Rating Out Of 5

Overall the internship experience at RSCW was very good because of the work and the very awesome staff. I would say it was 4.5 out of 5.
