Supreme Court to hear CLAT Plea

The PIL filed in Supreme Court for changes required in conduction of Common Law Aptitude Test (CLAT) has resulted in Supreme Courtโ€™s action of asking for the response to the PIL from Centre and Bar Council of India (BCI) as Supreme Court agreed to hear the plea which demands for constructing a new body to conduct CLAT.

The action has been taken after 6 weeks since the allegation was made, that the CLAT Exam conducted by National Law University is โ€œOpaque, arbitrary and open to abuseโ€.

Petitioner advocate K K Venugopal said that the present system of examination and admission should be revised as it creates problems for students from Rural areas and poor families. He suggested reviewing the fee structure, syllabus and format of CLAT.

K K Venugopal said,

“The present practice of paper setting is arbitrary and irrational, inasmuch as the paper setters entrusted with framing of question papers are often ill-equipped and unqualified. The questions are being reproduced verbatim from private guidebooks and other publicly available resources, thereby diluting the credibility and standard of the examination,” ย โ€œThe present practice of paper setting is arbitrary and irrational, in as much as paper setters entrusted with framing of question papers are often ill-equipped or unqualified. The questions are being reproduced verbatim from private guidebooks and other publically available resources, thereby diluting the credibility and standard of the examinationโ€.

Supreme Court would take the last call after the responses from BCI and Centre.
