The Planning Commission was established in 1950 by a Government resolution and is vested with a number of duties, most importantly assessing the resources of the country and their optimum utilization. Five-year plans with defined objectives are launched every five years under its initiative for contributing to the socio-economic development of the nation. The Commission is chaired by the Prime Minister. The Commission calls for Summer (Unpaid) and Paid Internships.
Familiarization of the students with the overall process of Planning at the apex body of the nation is the objective of the program. Law students who have a flavor for management, finance or economics will truly find this worth.
