The results to the All India Bar Exam (AIBE) 9 will be out on 16 May, announced the Bar Council of India (BCI) on the official bar exam website:
The result for the same would be released tentatively before 16Th May 2016
This follows a Live Law report of postponement from the originally announced date of 15 April (after the exam on 6 March) to an expected April-end, and another expected postponement to around 9 May according to a later Legally India report.
If the results end up being published on 16 May this year, it will equate to a nearly 10-week-period waiting for results. It took six weeks for results to be published to the previous, and eighth AIBE.
The date of this AIBE was postponed by 83 days to 6 March due to a website malfunction by AIBE contractor ITES Horizon Pvt Ltd, whose contract was extended quietly late last year despite consistent delays and underperformance by the contractor (as well as serious question marks surrounding the allocation of the contract to the company in light of more qualified and more competitively priced bidders).
Full disclosure: BCI chairman Manan Kumar Mishra has sent a defamation legal notice to Legally India regarding stories published pointing out the problems with the AIBE Legally India in its response had denied [http://www.legallyindia.com/Bar-Bench-Litigation/li-responds-to-manan-kumar-mishra-legal-notice defaming the BCI or its chairman since all reports were based on facts.
