Mumbai: Maharashtra government has decided to give an opportunity to graduates from any faculty to take admission in 15,000 vacant MBA seats in the state on the basis
of their marks.
The decision was taken recently by Higher and Technical Education department enabling students from any faculty to take admission in the MBA course based on their marks, without appearing for the mandatory Common Entrance Test (CET).
"This is a student-centric decision and they should take benefit from the educational facilities provided to them in the state," Higher and Technical Education Minister, Rajesh
There are over 40,000 MBA seats in Maharashtra. Despite CET and four rounds of Common Admission Process (CAP) about 15,000 seats remained vacant this academic year. The Directorate of Technical Education has issued a notification in this regard which says that priority would remain for students clearing CET for MBA course admissions.
However, the government is giving an opportunity to other students only to fill up the vacant seats, it said. The notification also clearly says that no injustice should be done with students while implementing the decision; else action would be taken by the government against institutions and organisations. Even the admission process has been extended till September 25 for students seeking to enter MBA course.
