CLAT put off to September 28
The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) for entry to national law schools has been rescheduled to September 28 because of the complete lockdown in Bengal on September 7.
The Consortium of National Law Universities met on Friday and discussed for over three hours the clash of dates and the inconvenience that thousands of examinees in Bengal could face in reaching centres.
A notification issued at the end of the meeting said: “The Executive Committee assessed the prevailing lockdown situation in various parts of the country and, in particular, took into consideration the lockdown announced in the state of West Bengal for 7th September, and the continued lockdown in the state of Bihar until 6th September. On this basis, the Consortium has taken the following decision. The CLAT 2020 examination for both UG and PG candidates scheduled for 7th September, 2020, has been postponed to Monday the 28th September, 2020, from 2 to 4pm.”
