"Interns may be given a stipend of Rs 10,000 per month necessary to meet the conveyance and other daily needs. It is neither a job nor a promise for job in the future," the DoPT said.

The government proposes to engage ten interns for internship. The last date for sending application to the DoPT is September 15.
