Hello CEians!
I am studying 6th sem B.E (Comp. Science) . I've heard students doing internships at NIC. I am quite interested to opt for Summer Training/Internship programs(2/3 months) at National Informatics Centre. But a quick Google search landed me nowhere. No guidelines are available online regarding application and program details. The NIC website doesn't even have a 'Careers' link. Does anybody have any resources or link where I can find the required info?

I'd appreciate if any CEian could share his/her experience working for NIC. Please guide me regarding the prerequisites, application details, program details etc. If you guys know someone who has carried out one at NIC, Please Tag !

Many Thanks!

UPDATE : The training division recently made available this piece of information regarding the application for summer training. I came across this and decided to share. The link could not be found prior to today. Do read if anyone is interested - https://training.nic.in/studentmis/smis.html
Any more resources are welcome !

@Sangee123 • 26 Jan, 2015 Random question: Is this website only for engineers in India?

Random question: Is this website only for engineers in India?
No. People from non engineering streams are also here, and very well guiding each other. 😁😁
@Sangee123 • 26 Jan, 2015 Yes, but I noticed all the internships discussed are in India....I dont live in India 😨
@Piyush Dangre • 26 Jan, 2015 Full semester training program details are available here - https://training.nic.in/studentmis/smis.html. Please post if someone knows about short term internships.

Glad to have you amongst us! Having a majority of Indian internships being discussed, does not in any way make CrazyEngineers a website for Indian engineers only ! 👍
@Sangee123 • 26 Jan, 2015 Thanks, I am Indian😛, I just was not born/live in India. I am trying to find an internship too. Thanks for answering my questions & sorry for filling your post with my stupid questions 😀

@Abhishek Rawal • 26 Jan, 2015 Why students prefer paid(or free) internship over collaborating on some opensource projects ?
Is certificate that valuable ?

We shall have debate on that!
@Piyush Dangre • 26 Jan, 2015 • 1 like Hello Abhishek ! The primary reason for this is lack of awareness among students regarding collaboration to opensource projects! All that they are concerned about is collecting certificates from renowned institutes(at times from less renowned too). They do this because their peers have been doing this. This happens because there is very less culture being developed to foster innovation in nearly every educational insitution in India. Barring the premiere institutes, the ground reality for nearly every engineering institute in India is the same. There are exceptions though. 😀

You know the sh*tty education system here brother?

They don't want students to go in practicality, all they want is a damn certificate.

But I try to learn wherever I go, whatever I do 😀

I've done summer training there on Plone (Open Source CMS) and worked on Python.
A senior told me about that vacancy & guided me. You're concepts should be strong in Python.

Oh that's wonderful. How was your experience?
@Ankita Katdare • 26 Jan, 2015 • 1 like Hi @Piyush Dangre I read your post a couple of days back and ever since I am trying to get in touch with some people who can share their experience. Sadly, not many people are ready to speak up.

A friend told me that some people she knows had to developed an android application to replace the existing mobile site for India's Press Information Bureau (PIB). The app had modules that displayed information about new government plans and policies.

Since you've already found the website that shares the details about applying as internts at NIC, I recommend that you also take a look at the existing projects on the NIC website. https://www.nic.in/projects
Some of these include - Government eProcurement Solution of NIC (GePNIC), RTI Portal, Online Medical Inventory System, Affidavit Issuance System (AIS), A Portal on North East India Academic and Examination Processing System of Council of Higher Secondary Education etc.

That should give you a fair idea about the kind of work that goes on inside the National Informatics Center.

PS: You should print your resume and head to the local NIC office. See what the reception desk there has to say about internship. Most probably they will ask you to fill out a form or drop an application. If you are lucky, you could get an interview call right away.
@Piyush Dangre • 28 Jan, 2015 • 1 like Thank you @Ankita Katdare for this wonderful information. I have studied the kind of projects NIC works on and I am getting the feeling that I have got a bit to contribute too. I'd certainly approach NIC soon and ask for information regarding the training/internship program. I'll soon share the info I get over CE.


Also, please say thanks to the friend who shared some info with you on my behalf 😁
@ankit mohanty • 23 Aug, 2015 i want to know nic publish some ad or any information about any internship
