About PRS Legislative Research
PRS tracks the functioning of the Indian Parliament and works with MPs from the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha across political parties and MLAs from various states. PRS provides a comprehensive and credible resource base to access Parliament-specific data, background information on Parliamentary and governance processes and analysis of key legislative and policy issues.
About the internship
Selected intern's day-to-day responsibilities include:

1. The primary role of a LAMP Fellow is to work closely with their MP, providing individualized research support for the entire duration of the Fellowship. This entails providing research inputs to help them fulfill their parliamentary duties such as asking questions, assessing the performance of ministries, raising matters of public importance, participating in various legislative and policy debates, and even drafting private members' Bills.
2. Between Parliament sessions, Fellows will continue to support their MPs on any research work that is requested of them. This may include, among other things, research for standing committee meetings and preparation for the next Parliament session. In addition, PRS will conduct workshops on important topics where Fellows can interact with experts and policy makers. This year, workshops were conducted on a wide range of public policy related subjects such as Health, Education, Agriculture, Climate Change, Technology policy, Budgets & Public Finances.
