  1. Strange?
    Why cant such an institution in collaboration with Linklaters be so irresponsible.

    • Hi,

      Most of the organizers email/intimate only the winners.

      Intimating everyone sometimes is not possible due to bandwidth concerns (time, resources).

    • Could have just make it a bit more transparent and public.
      Very disappointing and unexpected.
      Still looking forward to a more realistic response.

  2. Could you guys please confirm the entries of the participants by an acknowledgement letter at least?
    its been more than a month, no response from you guys about declaration of result or anything at all!!
    no reply from the contact id mentioned here.
    not expected from Nalsar.
