CAT 2013 Results: MHRD asks IIM Indore to take appropriate action on RTI applications
Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) has asked Indian Institute of Management (IIM) to take ‘appropriate action’ on CAT 2013 results related RTI applications filed with MHRD even as hundreds of RTI applicants eagerly awaited IIM Indore response to their RTI requests seeking information on raw scores and transparency on the normalization process.
Disgruntled over their CAT 2013 results, hundreds of CAT takers had filed RTI applications to MHRD seeking information on their raw score and rationale behind normalization process for CAT scores evaluation.
“â¦as the CAT Examination 2013 was conducted by IIM Indore, it is requested that the appropriate action may be taken in the matter as per the provisions of RTI act 2005,” MHRD wrote to IIM Indore in a letter regarding information on CAT results 2013.
The MHRD has also forwarded all the RTI requests related to CAT results 2013 to the Indian Institute of Management. The letter also asked the applicants to further pursue the matter with IIM Indore.
An IIM Indore official, whom Careers360 contacted, acknowledged the receipt of MHRD letter to IIM Indore. He said that the Institute will respond to the RTI requests mentioned in MHRD letter also. The official, however, admitted that the institute did not need to re-evaluate the CAT scores in order to prepare response to the RTI applications that it had received directly from the candidates.
The MHRD letter dated January 29 was sent by Sujit Kumar, Under Secretary to the Govt of India and CPIO to the CPIO, IIM Indore.
The CAT 2013 results were announced on January 14. The Common Admission Test (CAT) is conducted annually for admission to management programmes to all 13 Indian Institute of Management. The CAT scores are also accepted by many other top B-schools across India. IIM Indore had conducted CAT 2013 on behalf of all 13 IIMs’ with Prometric being their testing partner.
Careers360 had written an open letter to CAT 2013 Convenor Dr Rohit Kapoor of Indian Institute of Management Indore seeking his response on transparency in CAT examination and evaluation process. But IIM Indore is yet to respond to this.
Earlier, Careers360 had reported on 95000+ candidates scoring zero or less in CAT 2013 and the concerns on CAT evaluation process.
