Gujarat law exam hit by reservation row
Ahmedabad: Thousands will appear for the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) exam Sunday to enter national law universities. But those who have opted for Gujarat National Law University will have to wait till the Gujarat High Court rules on the reservation issue.
Chief Justice Bhaskar Bhattacharya and Justice JB Pardiwala have issued notice to the central and Gujarat governments for not keeping seats for Other Backward Classes, Dalits and tribals in the Gujarat University.
The High Court notice has also said the university can go ahead with the admission test but the court order will have to be accepted.
Of the Gandhinagar-based Gujarat National Law University`s 160 seats, 120 are reserved for the central and the rest for Gujarat quotas, said lawyer Amit Panchal for the petitioner.
The High Court has asked all respondents to respond before June 14.
