CLAT grievance committee: Retd Kerala HC judge and Cochin prof to take candidate complaints until Sunday

Retired Kerala high court justice MR Hariharan Nair and Cochin University Prof Santosh Kumar will form a committee until 29 May, to look into each individual grievance submitted until 27 May to Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2018 convenor Nuals Kochi by CLAT 2018 candidates.

Senior advocate Rakesh Munjal briefed by advocate A Kartik for Nuals submitted to the Supreme Court today that since yesterday Nuals had formed the grievance redressal committee to be headed by justice (retd) Nair and technical member Prof Kumar.

This committee will examine individual representation of CLAT 2018 candidates in two phases. The 251 representations which Nuals told the court yesterday it had already received will be examined and filed with corrective measures to be taken for them by Sunday 27 May. The Supreme Court today also allowed aggrieved candidates who have not yet submitted representations, to submit them until the deadline of 7pm on Sunday 27 May. The committee will tend to these fresh representations until 29 May.

The Supreme Court directed Nuals to submit the status report of the grievance redressal’s committee’s work, in court on 30 May and an advance copy to the petitioners in the writ which it is hearing, which we have been reporting on.

The court also directed Nuals to create and publish a designated email address for receiving grievance representations from CLAT 2018 candidates, within two hours from today’s hearing, the petitioners’ counsel Anand Shankar Jha told us.
