In light of this, a picture of apparently an official communique is being circulated on social media with the claim that the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2020 will not be conducted on September 7, 2020, as planned.
Soon after the notice went viral, a piece of 'news' stating that CLAT 2020 has been postponed started doing the rounds.
CLAT 2020 exam has been postponed.
The claim is false.
The Nodal Agency for conducting CLAT 2020, Consortium of National Law Universities (CNLU), issued a clarification on their website regarding the viral photograph.
According to the notification, the viral notice is fake and has not been issued by the Consortium. The agency clearly mentions that the date of the CLAT 2020 examination remains the same.
