Supreme Court has on Tuesday refused to postpone the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2021 scheduled to be held on July 23.
A Division Bench of Justice Nageswara Rao and Justice Aniruddha Bose has directed that all safety measures have to be strictly followed and Authorities should not insist on Students taking vaccination.
"Its been submitted that it will be difficult for students residing in areas of lockdown to take the exam. The examination is scheduled to be held on July 23rd and we don't deem it proper to postpone the exam at this stage. However, we see force in the submission that all safety measures have to be strictly followed. Authorities should not insist on Students taking vaccination," the Bench said.
The Bench has issued the direction in two pleas filed seeking postponement of the upcoming CLAT exam. The plea also sought directions for devising an alternate and secure method of conducting the examination, or defer the exam till the pandemic in the country is under control.
