Kerala HC stays CLAT college allotment for 2 weeks, reports LiveLaw

The Kerala high court on Monday, 15 June, has stayed the second Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2015 allotment by two weeks, further to a writ petition filed by CLAT candidate Anand G Nair, reported LiveLaw.

The petitioner wanted CLAT to publish a full merit list showing all candidates’ marks and colleges, praying according to the order, that “in the circumstances stated in the affidavit filed along with the WP(C) the High Court be pleased to stay all further allotments to be made on the basis of” CLAT 2015 “till the merit list of candidates” is published in terms of paragraph- 4 in Ext.P2 prospectus till the disposal of this writ petition.

The order by Justice AV Ramakrishna Pillai, as published by LiveLaw, stated:

Issue notice to respondent 1 and 2 by speed post. The 2nd allotment to be made on the basis of Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), 2015 shall be kept in abeyance for two weeks.

Since the order was apparently passed on Monday, on Tuesday the CLAT convenor RMLNLU appears to have published a full list of candidates and the colleges allotted to each in the second allocation list that have been ‘locked’ by candidates.

The full merit list was published on Friday, 12 June.

We’ve reached out to RMLNLU for comment.

Another writ petition was filed in the Rajasthan high court last week.
