CLAT Counselling 2019 – Lock, Upgrade and Withdrawal of seats

  • Lock – In this option, candidates are given an opportunity to lock the seat they have been offered confirming the seat and denotes that they are happy with the NLU allotted to them. If a candidate opts for this option, he/she will not be considered for the next rounds of counselling. This option is activated in every counselling round after the publication of indicative seat allotment list.

  • Upgrade/Shift – This is an option which is made open to the candidates in the second round of counselling. Also, this option is applicable to only those candidates who have participated in the first round and not yet locked their seats. Here, the seats are offered to the candidates automatically against any vacancy arising in the preferred NLU through his/ her choice via subsequent allotment list. After you choose this option you cannot go back, and any request to retain the seat allocated in the previous list will not be considered.

  • Withdrawal – This option can be exercised by the candidates in two ways - If any candidate attending counselling of CLAT 2019 fails to deposit the requisite amount of counselling fees, he/ she will lose the chance to get admission in NLUs of his/ her choice as his/ her name will be dropped from the admission merit list and this is the first way to withdraw an NLU seat, this can be done intentionally or can happen by mistake. Further, all the candidates who have been allotted NLUs will be offered a ‘Withdrawal’ option before the final seat allotment list, during the third round of counselling. The candidates who wish to withdraw their candidature from the NLU admission process by the said date will be allowed to withdraw from the admissions and their deposited counselling fee will be transferred to their bank accounts after a deduction of Rs. 10,000 from deposited counselling fee.

  • CLAT 2019 Refund Policy - A refund of INR 40,000/- will be given to those candidates who opt out of the counselling process at any stage. Students who have been allocated a seat in a particular NLU, but did not join the institute will also be refunded INR 40,000. In both these cases, the Consortium of National Law Universities will deduct INR 10,000/- as a processing fee.

CLAT Counselling 2019 – Complete process

  • Candidates are required to login to their respective CLAT 2019 accounts.

  • After logging into the respective CLAT accounts, a new page will open with the view of the NLUs allotted to them as per the first CLAT 2019 seat allotment list and Counselling Round I.

  • The allotted NLU will be as per their merit list and preferred NLU as indicated by them during filling CLAT application form 2019.

  • Then they will have to deposit an amount of Rs. 50,000 counselling fee for CLAT 2019 between the said dates.

  • Those who fail to deposit the fees in the stipulated time may lose their allotted NLU seat, admission opportunity to NLU and CLAT candidature even as their names will be dropped from the CLAT merit list.

  • After CLAT counselling fees have been deposited, the committee will issue second indicative seat allotment list mentioning the names who have locked their NLU seats and a list of candidates who are provisionally selected for the second round of CLAT counselling 2019 against the vacant seats made by the dropped out candidates of the first counselling round. This indicative list will be for the CLAT Counselling Round II.

  • The list will also indicate the candidates who have been upgraded/ shifted to a higher NLU as per the vacancy.

  • Candidates should note that they can switch between 'Lock' and 'Upgrade' before paying the counselling fee. After the candidate has deposited the counselling fee, he/she will not be allowed to change the option.

  • The candidates whose name have been freshly added to the second indicative counselling list of CLAT 2019, will need to pay the counselling fees in the stipulated time limit. However, those who have been upgraded need not re-deposit the fee.

  • Similar to the first seat allotment and CLAT counselling round I, candidates who fail to deposit the counselling fee within the time limit will forfeit their rights to be selected for NLU admissions and their names will be dropped from the merit list of CLAT 2019.

  • Before publishing third indicative list, the CLAT committee will provide an option of withdrawal to all those candidates who have been allotted NLUs in the previous CLAT counselling rounds.

  • Those who wish to withdraw from CLAT 2019 admissions will need to exercise the ‘Withdrawal’ option after which an amount will be credited to their registered bank account after deducting Rs.10,000 from deposited counselling fees. However, those who withdraw their allotted NLU seats after the last date of withdrawal will not be liable to receive any amount and it’ll result in forfeiture of the entire CLAT 2019 counselling fee.

  • Also, the CLAT 2019 admission office will publish the third and the last indicative list of CLAT counselling 2019 mentioning all those candidates who have been allotted NLUs for a final term.

  • Candidates as per the final seat allotment list of CLAT 2019 counselling will have to deposit the entire fees at their respective allotted NLUs.

  • The candidates are required to report at their respective NLUs with their relevant certificate/ documents required for the CLAT 2019 admission formalities.

  • It must be noted that the candidates who do not meet CLAT eligibility criteria 2019 will not be offered admissions to NLUs and no communication will be further entertained in this regard.

  • Those candidates will also automatically lose their candidature as well as CLAT counselling fee amount of Rs. 50,000 and can’t claim for that, under any circumstances. So, it is always advisable to read the eligibility criteria of CLAT 2019 before proceeding to any step of admission.
