First CLAT 2013 university list to be revoked

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2013’s first university allotment list published on 2 June will be revised to account for candidates’ complaints regarding withheld results, swapped university preferences, and alleged wrongful denial of reservation.

The CLAT committee today published the following notification on its website:

In view of certain unavoidable important developments after the publication of the first provisional allotment list such as:

(a) the Hon’ble Court’s direction to publish the withheld results of three candidates and allocate seats to them in order of their merit;

(b) doubts expressed by certain candidates regarding the order of their preferences for universities and the subsequent allotment of seats;

(c) consideration of ST Hills at par with ST/ST Plain for allotment of seats; and

(d) fresh guidelines provided by Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University, Lucknow, for reservation of seats for Dependants of Freedom Fighters;

the First Provisional Allotment List is being reviewed and revised thoroughly from all angles. Based on the outcome of the review, the revised list will be notified on the CLAT website at the earliest.

Five candidates from Kerala had on Wednesday alleged that their preference for Nuals Kochi in the CLAT forms submitted by them was swapped for CNLU Patna in the CLAT convenor’s records resulting in them being allotted CNLU despite securing ranks within Nuals’ cut-off.

One IDIA diversity initiative Nagaland scholar under the Scheduled Tribes (ST) Hills category had also complained against being denied a seat under the ST quota after exhaustion of the ST Hills quota, as reported by Legally India.

Four of the five complainants from Kerala filed a writ in the Kerala High Court today, and the HC issued a notice to CLAT 2013 convenor HNLU Raipur, as reported by legal website Live Law.
