Delhi HC Seeks Stand on Conducting CLAT 2020 From Home

A single judge bench of the Delhi High Court comprising Justice Jayant Nath, while hearing a matter, issued notices to the Centre and the Consortium of National Law Universities asking to file their replies in the matter by August 10, 2020.

The plea has been filed by V. Govinda Ramanan, a law student, and points at the contradiction between the guidelines issued by the Government of India and the notification issued by the CLAT Consortium mandating physical presence of students at the examination centres.

CLAT 2020 is scheduled to be held on August 22, 2020, through a “computer-based, online, centre-based” test. The plea contends that the notification is erroneous and violative of the Right to life, enshrined under Article 21 of the Constitution. It thus seeks directions for conducting a completely “home-based online examination,” as has been followed by other similar institutions, in view of the present pandemic.
