The Common Law Admissions Test (CLAT) convenor GNLU Gandhinagar has formally notified the inclusion of Tamil Nadu National Law School in Srirangam to its website, little under a week after the Madras high court ordered it to do so, following a petition by a local advocate pitching for inclusion of the new national law school in the CLAT. [CLAT TN NLS Notice]

13 June 2014

A Madras high court bench of Justices V Ramasubramanian and V M Velumani has ordered the Common Law Admissions Test (CLAT) convenor GNLU Gandhinagar to list the new Tamil Nadu National Law School (TN NLS) in Srirangam to its website, after having earlier told GNLU to provisionally allocate 14 places to the college.

The same petitioner had approached the court to request the CLAT website to include TN NLS on the website. The CLAT website, to date, carried a brief notice on its frontpage summarising the earlier high court decision, but did not include Tamil Nadu's second NLS in the list of 14 other national law schools.

The petitioner, Tiruchy-based advocate R Rajkumar, also submitted to the court that the CLAT should be "monitored and conducted" by a nodal agency, the Bar Council of India (BCI) and the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) to "avoid the allegation of partiality and favouritism against a particular university conducting the exam each year", reported the New Indian Express.

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."
