What are the Lock, Upgrade and Withdrawal options?
Lock– Candidates will be given this option in each of the counselling round after the publication of indicative seat allotment list. Exercising this ‘Lock’ option in CLAT 2017 counselling will confirm the allotted NLU choice for that counselling round. Further, the ‘Lock’ option debars candidates to shift their choice to any other NLU in the current counselling round.
Shifting/ Up-gradation– CLAT Committee will be offering this option from the second round of CLAT counselling 2017. Moreover, this option will be offered to only those candidates who have participated in the previous counselling round. The candidates will be automatically considered shifted or upgraded to a higher NLU against any vacancy arising in the preferred NLU through his/ her choice via subsequent allotment list.
Withdrawal– A candidate can exercise ‘Withdrawal’ option in two ways. If any candidate attending CLAT counselling 2017 fails to deposit the requisite amount of counselling fees, 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. Further, all the candidates who have been allotted NLUs will be offered a ‘Withdrawal’ option before the final seat allotment list, during fourth round of CLAT 2017 counselling. The candidates who wish to withdraw their candidature from the NLU admission process by the aforesaid date (refer CLAT 2017 counselling schedule given above) will be allowed to withdraw from the admissions and the deposited counselling fee will be transferred to their bank accounts after a deduction of Rs. 10,000 from that fee.

Candidates will have to login to their respective CLAT 2017 accounts.
Upon logging into their respective CLAT accounts, they will be able to view one of the NLUs allotted to them as per the first CLAT 2017 seat allotment list and counselling round I.
The allotted NLU will be at par their merit list and preferred NLU as indicated by them during filling CLAT 2017 application form.
Next they will have to deposit an amount of Rs. 50,000 as fee for CLAT 2017 counselling between the aforesaid dates (refer CLAT 2017 counselling scheduled above).
Those who fail to deposit the fees in the stipulated time are liable to lose their allotted NLU seat, admission opportunity to NLU and CLAT 2017 candidature even as their names will be dropped from the CLAT merit list.
After CLAT counselling fees have been deposited, the committee will issue second indicative seat allotment list mentioning the names who have locked their NLU seats and a list of candidates who are provisionally selected for the second round of CLAT 2017 counselling against the vacant seats made by the dropped out candidates of the first counselling round. This indicative list is for the CLAT Counselling Round II.

The candidates who have been freshly added to the second indicative counselling list of CLAT 2017 will need to pay the counselling fees by a stipulated time limit (refer CLAT 2017 counselling scheduled above). However, those who have been upgraded need not to re-deposit the fee.
Similar to the first seat allotment and CLAT counselling round I, candidates who fail to deposit the counselling fee within the time limit will forfeit their rights to be selected for NLU admissions and their names will be dropped from the merit list of CLAT 2017.
The CLAT Committee will publish another list, i.e., the third indicative seat allotment list for CLAT Counselling Round III mentioning names of those who have upgraded to higher NLUs and offered fresh seats against the vacant ones arising due to non-submission of CLAT counselling fees.
Similar to the first and second round of CLAT 2017 counselling, candidates allotted seats for the first time will have to deposit a counselling fee within the stipulated time duration (refer CLAT 2017 counselling scheduled above).
Those who fail to deposit the CLAT 2017 counselling fee will be dropped out from the merit list of CLAT and their seats will be vacant for filling-up by the other candidates in the CLAT merit list.
Before publishing fourth indicative list, the CLAT committee provides a withdrawal option to all those candidates who have been allotted NLUs in the previous CLAT counselling rounds.
Those who wish to withdraw from CLAT 2017 admissions will need to exercise the ‘Withdrawal’ option after which an amount will be credited to their registered bank account after deducting Rs. 10,000 from deposited counselling fees. However, those who withdraw their allotted NLU seats after the last date of withdrawal will not be liable to receive any amount and it’ll result in forfeiture of the entire CLAT 2017 counselling fee.
Further, the CLAT 2017 admission office will publish fourth and the last indicative list of CLAT counselling 2017 mentioning all those candidates who have been allotted NLUs for a final term.
Candidates as per the final seat allotment list of CLAT 2017 counselling will have to deposit the entire fees at their respective allotted NLUs.
The candidates are required to report at their respective NLUs with their relevant certificate/ documents required for the CLAT 2017 admission formalities.
It must be noted that the candidates who do not meet CLAT eligibility criteria 2017 will not be offered admissions to NLUs even if they have been allotted a seat and their candidature will remain cancelled thereon. Further, no communication will be entertained in this regard.
Such candidates will also automatically lose their candidature as well as CLAT counselling fee amount of Rs. 50,000 and can’t claim for that, under any circumstances.
