No one and I mean no bloody source can get you this resource. If it is, then watch out, either that source is lying or either it is an illegal outfit.
When the Cat exam was paper pencil based paper, the normal practice amongst students was to do the previous year papers. The availability of those old papers was not an issues and IIMs (the conducting authority of the CAT exam) had no problem in sharing the paper or if someone disclosed it. This made things simple and since the paper was conducted on one day, the IIMs could keep a surprise element each year. This changed with the Cat 2009 paper when Cat went online for the first time in its history.
Why can’t you get Mock Cat 2009?
IIMs prohibit any kind of sharing of questions, discussion etc on forums, websites or anywhere. Every Cat taker of 2009 (and of subsequent years) is required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement which was binding on the test taker. If anyone is found sharing the questions or compiling Mock Cat 2009 based on the questions which he/she faced then he is liable for prosecution by Law.
The reason why IIMs carved out such a scenario is to prevent giving unfair advantage to students giving exam on a later date. Unlike Paper Pencil Cat, where the entire population got the same set of questions, the online version has different sets for each day’s slot. In all likelihood, the questions do not repeat but this is not a 100% fool proof method. Hence, the non disclosure policy came into being.
