SC to consider fresh plea against CLAT

A bench of Justices L Nageswara Rao and Mohan M Shantanagoudar agreed to put the petition for consideration on Wednesday, a day before the results of the test are scheduled to be announced.

A group of 29 students have filed a fresh petition in the Supreme Court, seeking cancellation of the Common Law Admission Test 2018 (CLAT) held on May 13.

A bench of Justices L Nageswara Rao and Mohan M Shantanagoudar agreed to put the petition for consideration on Wednesday, a day before the results of the test are scheduled to be announced.

Advocate Zoheb Hossain mentioned the petition filed by Akshat Aggarwal and others for urgent listing.

The petitioners also sought a direction to conduct the examinations afresh.

Notably, on May 25, the top court had approved setting up of a panel headed by former Kerala High Court judge M R Hariharan Nair and comprising a professor of Cochin University, Santosh Kumar G, to look into grievances of the candidates.

The National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS), Kochi, that conducted the tests, has been asked to file a status report on Wednesday, after inviting complaints of the candidates by Sunday 7 pm and addressing the issues, including technical glitches that they faced.

A batch of petitions earlier filed by candidates in the top court, as well as various high courts, sought quashing of the CLAT 2018 examination besides a re-test claiming that several inconsistencies had cropped up during the test held on May 13 for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in premier National Law Universities.
