SC to consider plea seeking CLAT retest

The Supreme Court is set to hear a batch of petitions challenging CLAT, 2018.

The Supreme Court is set to hear a batch of petitions challenging the Common Law Admission Test 2018 (CLAT) held on May 13 this year due to certain inconsistencies.

A bench of Justices A M Khanwilkar and Navin Sinha asked the lawyers appearing for the petitioners to serve the copy of their pleas to the standing counsel appearing for the Centre and other respondents.

The petitioners told the bench that the high court of Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Bombay, Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan were hearing separate pleas demanding retest of CLAT 2018 and notices have been issued in some of these matters.

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

The examination was organised by CLAT working committee and implementation committee and the National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS) and the 2018 results are expected to be declared on May 31.

The petitioners have sought quashing of the CLAT 2018 examination besides a re-test alleging that several inconsistencies had cropped up during the test held on May 13.
