About

Indian Road Safety Campaign’s Policy program is essentially a 2.5-month internship that encourages and equips students to take effective action for road safety in their local areas, by liaising with relevant stakeholders.

Guided by experts, mentors and the team of Indian Road Safety Campaign, students undertake collaboration with civic bodies, traffic police, the general public, and any other appropriate stakeholders to tackle issues related to road safety and infrastructure.

Everyday observations such as non-functioning traffic lights, lack of traffic signs, potholes, etc that make their surroundings unsafe come under focus during this internship. Instead of waiting for others to take action, students become agents of change.

Students can form a team with up to 5 people. They need to identify a black spot/problem area in their locality and/or nearby surroundings, engage with stakeholders affected by the issue, research possible solutions and get it implemented by the authority. In the policy program, this is divided into 5 phases with well-defined tasks that help students understand the proper procedure and mechanism they should follow.

Vision

Indian Road Safety Campaign believes that it is the need of the hour to engage in a collective endeavor to build a safer India. Reaching the youth and engaging them on the ground level through the policy program is one of the many steps we need to take to achieve our 10-year multistakeholder roadmap to reduce road crash fatalities and achieve vision zero.


Phases of Internship

Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Phase 4 Phase 5
Field Visit and Problem Area Identification Survey of relevant stakeholders Create a solution framework accompanied by a case study analysis Final Presentation Submission Implementation and Concluding Report

Note

1. The interns who get their final reports stamped by the relevant authority or present a relevant proof of their acceptance of solution from the authorities would get their internship certificates.
2.For each phase, you have to prepare and submit a soft report containing all the required content as mentioned above.
3. You will be provided points at the end of each phase of the internship. Each phase carries 25 points and there would be bonus points for responsiveness.
4. You must clear a minimum cut-off of points for being eligible for the certificates. The minimum cut-off would be 60 points.
5. We advise you to choose less number of Problem Statements (one or two would be enough) so as to work efficiently on them and create impact. The kind of impact created would be the major criteria for the evaluation.
6. Any work which would solve a major and pertinent road-safety issue of the locality which has been causing large number of deaths for the past years would be given bonus points.
