Recounting his association with IDIA, Yugal says:

“I have low vision due to retinal detachment, and I used to take the assistance of scribes for writing my exams. NLU Jodhpur was conducting the law entrance exam in 2012. They had rejected my request to get my own scribe for writing the exam, and informed me that the scribe will be arranged by the exam centre. There was no mechanism in place to ensure quality of the scribe, or meet the scribe before the exam. I found this policy of NLU Jodhpur unfair, and wanted to challenge the same. It is at this point that I was introduced to Shamnad sir and IDIA by Rajneesh sir (CLAT Essential Founder). From that time onwards to the day I graduated from law school, Shamnad sir and IDIA were of great support, be it in terms of, challenging NLU Jodhpur’s policy, arranging scholarship to study at Nalsar, or extending academic and professional mentorship. I remain grateful for IDIA’s support.”
