CLAT exam: HC seeks Centre, BCI reply on ABVP, students plea

Petition claimed mismanagement, incompetency

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday sought response from the Centre and the Bar Council of India on a plea by BJP’s youth wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and two law students challenging the “inconsistently and negligently” conducted Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) held recently.

Justice Rekha Palli issued notice to the Ministries of Law and Justice, and Human Resource Development, BCI, CLAT working committee and implementation committee, and the National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS).

The petition sought quashing of the CLAT-2018, contending that there were mismanagement and incompetency of the national law universities in conducting the examination on a rotational basis.

The petition sought the court’s intervention against the “inconsistent, negligent, sub-standard and inefficient” conduct of CLAT which was organised by its working committee, implementation committee and the NUALS on May 13.

Next hearing, results

The court listed the case for further hearing on May 30 while the CLAT results are expected to be declared on May 31.

The petition also sought direction to appoint an independent body for conducting the examination afresh.

The exam is conducted for the purpose of admission to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in law offered at premier national law schools of the country.

The petition said there had been repeated failures and technical glitches every year in the conduct of CLAT and students were currently facing a threat to their career due to failure of the authorities.
