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.

Main tasks

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.

Best things

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.

Bad things

No such bad thing, but sometimes the Law officers were too strict and rude.



Biggest Lessons

The NLU tag doesn’t work everywhere.

Overall Rating



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.

Office Timings

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!
