Results for the 2014 Common Law Admissions Test (CLAT) will only be released within a week, with convenor GNLU Gandhinagar having to manually cross check all 33,491 answer sheets, CLAT committee member and NUJS Kolkata registrar Surajit Mukhopadhyay told the Times of India.
GNLU director Bimal Patel, breaking his long media silence on the debacle to the TOI, placed the blame squarely on the barcode sticker system attached to OMR answer sheets: "The concept of affixing the candidate sticker and the barcode was introduced to evaluate the OMR sheet without revealing candidate's details. The reconciliation will be done by opening the concealed section containing the candidate sticker and the details filled in by the candidates."
