  1. Hi,
    Anyone has any idea how this moot is? If confirmation of registration is on 28 then this would give around 15 days for competition, and website says 1-2 November.

    • Hi,
      The dates for the competition are as listed in the Rules and in the above post. There was a glitch in the official website wherein the dates for another event had become mixed up with the moot’s. It has been corrected now.
      The date specified as “Confirmation of Registration” in the rules is the latest date by which the Organizers shall send confirmation of registration to the participating teams. However, teams will normally be sent a confirmation as soon as all the formalities required for registration, as per the rules, have been completed.
      All interested teams are encouraged to register and begin preparing for the competition as early as possible and not wait till the last moment to register or to await confirmation of registration before beginning preparation.

      Thanks & regards,
      MCS IIT Kharagpur
