The Madras high court on Thursday ordered that eight seats be reserved for each of the petitioners in any of the 13 IIMs pending final disposal of the writ petition filed by the candidates who undertook CAT 2013 at Chennai.

The eight candidates had filed the petition seeking interim relief while alleging faulty evaluation and non-transparency in the evaluation of CAT 2013 scores.

This legal intervention comes just a few days after the Indore bench of MP high court had on February 18, issued notices to 13 IIMs to explain both the normalisation and the scaling process of the scores of the CAT 2013 aspirants.

“We had asked for an interim stay in the admission process which was not granted. But the court has ordered that eight seats be reserved for the petitioners in any of the 13 IIMs. The court has also directed that notices be issued to the Government of India, CAT 2013 centre which is IIM Indore and Prometric Testing Pvt Ltd, the body which conducts the exam,” Anjali Sridhar, one of the counsels for the petitioners at Madras high court told HT.

The petitioners, she said, had challenged the normalisation process and lack of transparency in the scoring adopted by the IIMs.
