CLAT 2018 Results Shall Be Subject To The Decision Of Petitions Challenging It: Rajasthan HC [Read Order]

The Rajasthan High Court has, while posting a writ petition challenging CLAT Examinations 2018, on 29th May, observed that if the result of the Examination is declared before the said date, it shall be subject to the decision of this writ petition.

This order was issued by the division bench comprising of Justice Gopal Krishan Vyas and Justice Ramchandra Singh Jhala on a Writ petition filed by Ms. Manvee Bhandari from Jodhpur, Rajasthan.

Sagar Joshi, Founder Director of Law Prep Tutorial, who initiated the filing of the petition told LiveLaw that due to lawyer’s strike in Jodhpur (Rajasthan) High Court, in today’s hearing students of his institute Manvi Bhandari and Yogya Rajpurohit appeared in person.

“On the basis of pleading by these students, High Court Bench of Justice gopal krishna vyas and Justice vijendra jhala has now issued returnable notice to CLAT organising University NUALS Kochi and other members of CLAT committee. CLAT committee has been given time till 29th may to reply.The most important part of the today’s order is that the court said that the CLAT Result will be subject to the decision of the court in this petition”, he added.

Meanwhile another 16 candidates have filed a new writ petition through Advocate Akshay Jain seeking a re-examination of CLAT 2018 and as an interim measure they have sought a stay on the result of CLAT 2018. This petition will also be listed 25th May 2018 along with other CLAT petitions.

In the wake of the episode of mismanagement and technical snags characterizing the CLAT 2018 held on May 13, two students have approached the Jaipur bench of the Rajasthan High Court praying for a re-test in view of the blatant violation of the prescribed Rules and Regulations.

The High Court has reportedly issued a notice to respondents in these writ petitions.

The petitioners Akshay Jain and Mansi Jain, in their writ petitions, had averred that neither the Demo Examination nor the Main Examination was conducted as per the instructions provided in the Admit Card and the same were blatantly violated by the Respondents during the examination.

    Those who have worked hard, but had not enough time to even read the complete questions paper. Due to this technical glitches and the disturbance by examiners instructions to repeatedly shut down and reboot, relogin the system. Finaly to go on Windows.
    At the same exam centre some students in a room got resetting of time and in other room no resetting of time, how could be justified?
    The only solution is reexamination.

  • Sagar says:

    Re-examination is not a solution. think about those who even after facing glitches scored well and are making into NLU’s and what if Re-exams are conducted and somehow they’ll miss that time ? It is unfair with 60 k+ crowd for the exams to be reconducted. It’s better that these things should be taken care in future. though I know some might have suffered but Re-examination is not a solution to that

  • Govind singh says:

    Instead of conducting a re-examination of CLAT, the admissions this year should be on the basis of class 12 percentage. That would be fair enough and comfortable as well

  • Paarth Garg says:

    The petitions before different high Courts should be clubbed together and be heard by the Supreme Court to avoid differing decisions. The technical glitches were not significant. More than 60,000 students cannot be punished by way of a re-exam because the petitioners were not able to garner good score.

  • Senthil says:

    Entrance exams for UG courses are nowadays becoming very hard to aspiring students to study law courses in reputed institutions. The object of the exam is to enhance the education system and that if it is above standards, and, if it is not reachable to students, is sometimes put into challenge. Authorities concerned should ensure exam centers with good infrastructure , proximity to students, suitable syllabus that is enough to aspiring students to the entry level for UG courses.
