Domicile certificate must for professional courses in Maha
Mumbai: Maharashtra government has decided to
make domicile certificate compulsory for admissions in
professional courses such as architecture, MBA, pharmaceutical
and engineering, from the next academic year.
"The State Government`s policy of giving priority to
local students is very clear, hence the decision was taken. In
fact, other states like Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Madhya
Pradesh and Tamil Nadu already have the provision," Minister
of Higher and Technical Education Rajesh Tope, said today.
The domicile rule would be applicable from the next
academic year, he said.
"We wanted to introduce the new system from this year.
However, the decision could not be communicated to the
students and to avoid any confusion it would be implemented
from the academic year of 2011-12, he said.
Responding to a query whether the decision would affect
students coming from other states, Tope replied in the
negative saying there is 15 per cent quota for national level
