Government is for the first time looking to recruit interns and research scholars to study issues relating to anti-corruption law, punishment to government employees for unethical behavior and exit policies for inefficient public servants among others.
The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has called for applications from eligible candidates who could be attached within the department and supplement the process of analysis through desirable empirical collection and collation of in-house and other information.
“The exposure for the interns to the functioning of the Indian Government may be an add-on in furthering their own career goals in the non-profit organization (NPO) sector or international organizations,” a press release issued today by the DoPT said.
The internship shall be for a minimum period of two months but shall not exceed six months in individual cases, it said.
The DoPT has identified ten topics including analysis of cases disposed of by Central Administrative Tribunal; collection of data on reservation from ministries and its analysis; issues relating to anti-corruption law, punishment of government employees for unethical behavior and exit policies for inefficient public servants.
