The young talents will be exposed to various vigilance-related work being done by the Commission “for mutual benefit”.

The anti-graft watchdog has started “The CVC Internship Scheme, 2016” to engage youngsters who would be expected to supplement the process of analysis within CVC through desirable empirical collection and collation of in-house and other information.

“The interns may benefit by getting an exposure to the Commission’s functioning and the vigilance issues involved and contribute to the policy formulation of the Commission by generating policy inputs such as empirical analysis, briefing reports, policy papers,” according to the scheme.

“The Commission may benefit from the additional resources in the form of young talent and their output which will add to its policy formulation base,” the scheme document said.

Those who are graduates (or awaiting final year results), post graduate or research students enrolled in reputed universities or institutions within India or abroad and preferably studying law, information technology, business management, social sciences and associated subjects are eligible to apply for the scheme.

The period of internship shall be for a minimum of one month extendable to two months. A maximum of three interns will be hired by the Commission during 2016-17. Those selected will also get a remuneration of Rs 10,000 to meet expenses on conveyance and their other daily needs.

“It is neither a job nor a promise for job in the future,” CVC said, adding that the interns will be required to furnish a “Declaration of Secrecy” prior to the commencement of the internship.

The interns shall be attached to branch heads who shall ensure timely initiation of the work plan and final submission of the project report to Secretary CVC at the end of the internship period.
