On behalf of the office of the Consortium of National Law Universities,
“Amid the unprecedented situation across the country, CLAT-2021 was conducted in pen and paper mode successfully and without the news of any mishaps or violation of safety norms. Health and safety of all stakeholders of CLAT-2021 remained of a central importance for the Consortium. The team of Convenor, Prof. (Dr.) Vijender Kumar, Vice-Chancellor of MNLU Nagpur published the result within five days from the day of Test with a support of the Secretary of CNLUs Prof. (Dr.) Sudhir Krishnaswamy at the Consortium headquarters and the guidance of Executive Committee of CNLUs.
CLAT-2021 was conducted on July 23, 2021 at 147 centres in 82 cities across the country.
Out of 70,277 candidates who registered, 66,887 downloaded their Admit Cards and 62,106 appeared for the Test. 147 Centres were coordinated through 24 Regional Centres, supervised by 174 Centre Superintendents, 184 Centre Observers and more than 3,500 Invigilators. All stakeholders conducting CLAT-2021 were provided with COVID Kits containing sanitizer, mask, face shield, and hand-gloves. Apart from increasing Test Centres from previous years, the Consortium had directed the Centres to accommodate less than 50% of actual seating capacity in the examination halls. The Consortium organised CLAT-2021 to ensure the health and safety of all stakeholders of CLAT-2021. The Test Centres were directed to display Seating Plans at multiple visible locations to avoid crowding and were also advised to display Flex Printed Seating Plans wherever required.”
