A clear and comprehensive policy on regulating internships should be drafted to put an end to possible labour exploitation by some companies that underpay or do not pay interns during industrial attachment, says a student activist.

The final-year student from Universiti Malaya, Rashifa Aljunied, said currently undergraduates undergoing industrial training are in a grey area allowing some companies to take advantage of their contributions by not paying them.
