How to Apply for Flipkart's Launchpad Internship Programme?

Flipkart is working in collaboration with educational institutions in 21 locations that include Binola, Haryana, Bhiwandi, Uluberia and Dankuni (West Bengal) and Malur, Medchal and Telangana. The internship program will be rolled out in the upcoming festive season. So one would have to get in touch with their respective colleges first instead of directly contacting Flipkart. If you are a student living in any of the Tier II cities then you have an opportunity to intern with the company.

It will be a paid internship with approximately Rs 500 per day. It is subject to change based on local state and labour laws. It can go as high as Rs 600 per day too.

This is not the first time the company has come up with the internship project. Last year, the internship program saw the participation of over 2,000 students from across the country.
