The organization and topic selected by the student has to be registered with the concerned department of the campus. The department shall approve the topic and issue a "letter of introduction" to the student. This letter of introduction will help the student to gain access to the selected organization. The campus department will provide an orientation class to the student on the "fieldwork modalities and protocol". The student has to independently conduct the fieldwork and write a report on the prescribed format.
