Due diligence by CAT Center Upholds Merit

Eighty of 2,14,068 CAT 2012 scores published by M/s. Web Weavers, Lucknow are found to have discrepancies. Web Weavers' association with IIMs started from CAT 2010 onwards. Based on an anonymous complaint, the CAT center investigated and found that the CAT scores of 80 candidates were inflated on the official site www.catiim.in. This web site is hosted and managed by M/s. Web Weavers. It must be noted that IIMK is not responsible for any manipulations on the website. In fact, immediately after receiving the anonymous complaint the CAT convener conducted an investigation in a timely manner and after identifying the discrepancies an FIR was lodged based on which a police investigation is underway. IIMs are confident that whoever is found guilty of any unlawful acts would face legal consequences. It shall be noted that all the Institutes that use CAT scores for selection of candidates have been alerted. Subsequently, the CAT center has shared the CAT scores of the candidates from the master database to all the non-IIM Institutes who use CAT scores for their admission. A committee is setup by MHRD to fix accountability and take corrective measures.
