The glitches surrounding the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2018 were raised in the Supreme Court of India today.
The issue was raised by advocate Gopal Sankaranarayanan as part of his submissions for IP Academic Shamnad Basheer in thepetition seeking permanent body for conducting CLAT.
When the matter came up for hearing today before a Bench of Justices SA Bobde and L Nageswara Rao, Sankaranarayananappearing for Basheer submitted,
“The exam was conducted on Sunday and it was a complete disaster. It is a very very important exam. 60,000 students take the exam after attending coaching classes etc for two years and then exam ends up […]“
Explaining the issues which marred the conduct of CLAT 2018, Sankaranarayanan said,
“Some students were allowed two hours, some four hours.”
Basheer also raised certain issues with respect to the admission of students in NRI quota and Persons with Disability quota.
The Court proceeded to adjourn the case while also directing that admission to NRI Quota and Persons with Disability quota will be subject to the outcome of the case.
