Department of Economic Affairs Internships; For Law Students Too

The Economic Times carries a story that the Department of Economic Affairs (DEA), which is part of the Ministry of Finance, has devised an internship programme to enable interaction between its officials and students pursuing higher studies in the field of economics, finance and management.

It offers interesting options for law students as well. The news report states:

Also, students with at least 80% marks in 12th standard, pursuing five-year integrated course in law from the National Law Schools at Bangalore, Bhopal, Hyderabad and Kolkata, are also eligible for the scholarship if they are in the fourth or fifth year of study.

    Isn't this discrimination….How can such things be allowed by the Government itself.
