CLAT 2016: Punjab & Haryana HC issues stay order on exam
Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2016 has been dragged into a fresh controversy as yet another Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed against the exam committee and Bar Council of India (BCI) demanding conduct of the law entrance exam in the offline mode along with online.
The PIL, filed in the High Court of Punjab and Haryana, also demanded a stay on the conduct of the examination, which is scheduled for May 8, 2016 following which the high court has issued a stay order pending further hearings. The next court hearing is on March 2, 2016.
The PIL was filed on February 8, 2016 by advocate Hemen Aggarwal who pointed out that the court’s order will bring justice to aspirants who live in rural areas where internet connectivity might be slow and aspirants are not properly trained to appear for online examinations. Talking to Careers360, Hemen Aggarwal said, “An online exam is injustice to those who come from rural households as several of them lack the basic know-how of operating the computer machines and, therefore, face difficulties in appearing for an online paper.”
Clarifying further, he said that it will be quite good if the exam is conducted in both online as well as offline mode. “Let it be a decision for the aspirants appearing in CLAT for the mode as it will be fair and transparent,” said the petitioner besides pointing out that an added advantage of the offline paper is that it allows test takers to skip questions- a facility yet unavailable in the online mide.
CLAT 2016 was earlier dragged to the Supreme Court on August 28, 2015 on a PIL filed by Shamnad Basheer, an ex-WBNUJS faculty and currently IPR Expert demanding formation of a permanent conducting body of CLAT. The current status of this case is still pending as the next hearing is scheduled for March 4, 2016.

Questions related to CLAT
is it good to go out another city for clat preparation, because the place where I live has no facility but after I clear this exam , again I have to somewhere else for law. what to do? which city is best for clat preparation.
Well preparing for clat is also possible without coaching but it do require extra work as you will have to collect all the required materials such as notes and books by yourself, where in a coaching centre you are provided all the required materials.
However it isn't necessary to go to a different city to prepare untill and unless you are not ready. You have made a very good point here that for law college you will eventually have to go to a different city. Well if you are ready and comfortable than go for it. I will recommend you to go for delhi, as it has some of the best coaching centres and crowd is also good.
However if you are not ready to go to a different city you can also try online coaching programs. In offline coaching centres you get to interact with competitive crowd which pushes you up further to work hard however in online classes it isn't possible.
Anyways I hope you will make best decision for yourself. Hope you find it helpful.
