The West Bengal government, in association with the higher education department, is introducing a student internship scheme for graduates.

The internship will last for a year and each student will be reviewed at the end of their tenure and certificates will be handed out. To make the application process simpler, the government is also going to launch a website soon and applicants will be chosen by a selection committee.
