Advisory To The General Public To Be Vigilant Against Emails And Advertisements Relating To Cbi Internship Scheme

Press Release

New Delhi, 28.01.2020

Certain instances of fraudulent advertisements and emails relating to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Internship Scheme have come to the Agency’s notice. These are being spread on some platforms to attract young professionals.

It is clarified that the CBI has issued an advertisement on its website titled, “CBI Academy and to initiate an Internship Scheme of CBI from the year 2020”. This scheme is initiated to seek engagement of Indian nationals, who are Graduate/Post Graduate or Research students enrolled in reputed University/Institutes within India, preferably specializing in Law, Cyber, Data Analysis, Criminology, Management, Economics, Commerce and Forensic Science including Digital Forensics and associated subjects. These “interns” shall be attached within the CBI ( for a period of 6 to 8 weeks) and would be expected to supplement the process of analysis within the Agency through desirable empirical collection and collation of in-house data and other information. A total number of 30 interns will be engaged for different CBI Branches at Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Lucknow and Chandigarh.

It has come to our notice that some platforms are referring to this Internship Scheme as an employment opportunity in the CBI. These platforms incorrectly mentioned that the CBI will pay the interns a consolidated amount or salary as per CBI norms, during the internship period. These platforms are also falsely giving alleged information to the general public that after completion of the CBI Internship, the interns will be given placement in CBI. The candidates are also being asked to apply for the Internship Scheme of CBI online through a link being provided by recruitment agencies/ websites.

The CBI would like to bring to the notice of all that –

i) During the internship period (6-8 weeks) no payment will be made while Interns will have to make their own arrangements for stay and travel and that the Scheme does not involve any permanent placement with the CBI after completion of the internship period.

ii) Any interested and eligible candidate may apply as per procedure given in the advertisement and there is no application fee required to be paid while applying for engagement as Interns in CBI.

iii) Complete and signed applications (with supportive papers) addressed to the SP (Training), CBI Academy, Ghaziabad received through speed post shall only be entertained. In case, an application is received through such recruitment agencies/websites, the same will be rejected.

iv) CBI will not be responsible in any way for the amount paid by the individuals to any individual or group of individuals/ agencies purporting to be representing CBI or giving false information on their websites. Any one dealing with such fake websites/agencies would be doing so at his/her own risk and the CBI will not be held responsible for any loss or damage suffered by such persons, directly or indirectly. The CBI strongly recommends that the potential candidates applying for CBI Internship Scheme should not respond to such solicitations and apply only as per the advertisement uploaded on the website of CBI, CBI Academy and

If anyone come across any such fraudulent incident or have any information regarding solicitation for selection or employment with CBI through the CBI Internship Scheme, please inform the CBI at [email protected], to take appropriate action and to curb such mala fide activities
