Office and Work description:
The office is located on the 11th and 13th Floor of the One India Bulls Centre. On the first day of work, they conducted an orientation for all interns and also assigned the respective departments. I was assigned the Real Estate Department. Every intern was assigned with a ‘Buddy’ who was an associate of the respective departments that were assigned to us. We could approach any them to seek work.
The work assigned to me was majorly research based. I researched on the provisions of various acts such as Transfer of Property Act, Hindu Succession Act, Maharashtra Rent Control Act, SARFAESI Act, etc. I also prepared a few legal notes and presentations for associates. There was also a wee bit of clerical work on my plate, but not on regular occasions. On the very last day, I got a very fruitful opportunity to observe a commercial negotiation in relation to a consumer protection dispute.
The work environment is formal but the associates in the real estate department are very helpful and approachable. They made certain that I always had enough work and also took the special effort to explain to me how a particular task would help me in my academic development. I was assigned work by the senior members of the real estate team as well. This helped me interact with most of the team members.
They have a mess service which provides lunch plates for 65 bucks. Alternatively, one can take lunch at the huge food court at One India Bulls Center.
Any other insights:
The team members always made sure I had enough work. They also have a ‘research assignment’ which has to be completed by every intern by the last day of their internship.
