From the last academic session (2016-17), AICTE made 3 internships mandatory for engineering student for getting a degree which was also the hot topics in India. It’s an important decision taken by the AICTE forgiven the better knowledge about the industry to the students through they can not struggle after completing the engineering.
As we all know that last one decade in India the most common problem is unemployment and the unemployment problem majorly having in the engineering branch/stream. Almost 70% of Engineering graduates are unemployed. We can simply say that the next world war will be having because of this unemployment and I directly want to say that we all are the one major reason behind this and our parents will be the prime reason. Every Year 16 Lac Students passing out from engineering institutes i.e. IITs, NITs, and GFTIs but only 3 lac students are getting a Job and only 1 Lac students are getting jobs in their core company. One major reason behind this less amount of skills and skill gap or less amount of practical knowledge.
So AICTE starts to give practical knowledge to the students but the problem was how it would be implemented then they bring these as in the form of Internship which carrying marks for getting a bachelor degree. The main reason to make it mandate for all the students is to provide the best knowledge about the industry what should be in engineering graduate after their engineering?
We Learndunia took an interview of an IITian Kapil Viswas, He is Passout from IIT Bombay, He told us that how an internship helped him for becoming a successful data analyst in the Software industry.
Kapil told us that when he was in the third year he has not a little bit knowledge about internship and what are the specific areas where he need to go through with, for building his own career, But finally one of his cousin who also a graduate from IIT Kanpur in Civil engineering told him that you just need to do internship and you will get certified from the companies or you need to sit in your college campus placement if you have a good jobs from those internships. Then I researched a lot about internship, from where can I found these type of internship, then I found internshala, who are providing a very good internship then finally I found squareboat solution and applied for the position of software intern, after one week, I received a call from their HR team they schedule my face to face round, then I got selection after facing the face to face round and got a Joining letter. I joined these organization for 6 months as an internship, then during my internship, I had worked with my team and faces a lot of challenges and know how we can come out from that situation. After completion of internship either students join the same organization or can join some other portal as well.

Comparison Between paid and Unpaid Internships:
As AICTE make mandatory this only for learning through student can get a complete idea about the industry. But as a research survey, it is found that students also want to join a company who are giving stipend during the internship, that’s why everybody is looking at this type of internship.
As 90% internship are paid nowadays (Maybe 10000 INR or 15000 INR stiped) only 10% are unpaid. Most of the time student is joining only those who are giving them a stipend. The purpose of doing an internship is, polishing your own existing skills, learning new skills, and validating your skills with relevant hands-on experience.
Most of the students are joining only NGO or government organization which is too richer or giving them a lot of stipend and learning.
