      you will have to check directly with NHRC on that. Given the timelines, I think it must be around the corner.

      How did you hear about Internshala?

      I think the last date to apply was sometime in April/May. There are quite a few other social internships posted on the blog which you may find relevant – have a look. You could also like Internshala on facebook and make sure that you don’t miss out on any such opportunities in future.

      Hope this helps. Wish you all the best.

      Many thanks
