Do not disclose CAT Exam details

New Delhi: For all the hullabaloo surrounding the Common Admission Test (CAT) going online this year, there is word of caution for the entrance examination takers this year from the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs).

The apex institutes have clarified that candidates who want to appear for CAT 2009 have to agree to a Non-Disclosure Agreement at the time of the test.

The IIMs have made it clear that - "Disclosing, publishing, reproducing, transmitting, storing, or facilitating transmission and storage of the contents of the CAT or any information therein in whole or part thereof in any form or by any means, verbal or written, electronically or mechanically for any purpose, shall be in violation of the Indian Contract Act, 1872 and/or the Copyright Act, 1957 and/or the Information Technology Act, 2000".

Any such action constitutes a cognizable offence punishable with imprisonment for a term up to 3 years and fine up to Rs.2 lakhs.

So, now, even if CAT 2009 went off really smoothly for you, make sure you do not reveal anything about the paper. You can just say.. the paper was good!
