Step by Step CLAT Counselling Process 2021

Registration for Counselling Process:

After the announcement of the first list, candidates will have to apply for the counselling process. Students whose names are mentioned in the list will have to pay the counselling fee to be eligible for seat allotment process.

  • Those who fail to deposit the fees in the stipulated time may lose their allotted NLU seat, admission opportunity to NLU. After the payment of fees, the authorities will issue the second indicative seat allotment list. This indicative list will be for the CLAT Counselling Round 2.

Locking of Choices:

In this option, candidates will have to submit their course and college preferences. After locking the choices, candidates will not be allowed to shift from one university to another during the further counselling process. The Lock option confirms the candidate’s final choice for the particular NLU. 

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

Upgrading/Shifting:

The candidates choosing this option will be considered for further counselling rounds against any vacancies that will arise in NLUs. Only upward shifting will be permitted in accordance with the preference list given at the time of application.

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

Withdrawal: 

This option can be used by the candidates in two ways - If any candidate participating in the CLAT 2019 counselling fails to deposit the requisite amount of counselling fees, then 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, it can be deliberately done or by mistake.

  • Second way: This option will be given to the candidates before the final seat allotment list, during the third round of counselling. In such a case, candidates 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.

Final Admission List:

Based on the vacant seats in institutes, a second, third and final list of shortlisted candidates may be published. In order to confirm the seats allotted to them, candidates will have to get their documents verified by the designated authority and pay the admission fees.
