Gujarat State education department issues a notification stating engineering, pharma, MBA colleges can admit eligible students who have not appeared for entrance exams this year to fill the nearly 2,000 vacant seats; admission process to be completed by October 13.
In what appears to be the first step towards scrapping GujCET (for admissions to medical, engineering, pharmacy) and GCET (MBA,MCA), the state government has issued a notification allowing students who had not taken the entrance tests this year to apply for first year admissions. This, sources told Mirror, is because nearly 2,000 seats are lying vacant in MBA colleges and 11,000 in colleges offering degree/ diploma engineering and pharmacy courses after completion of the admission process in August last week. The state education department issued a notification stating a candidate who is otherwise eligible under the Regulation of Admission and Payment of Fees rules but has not appeared for GujCET shall also be eligible for admission to the first year Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Pharmacy and Diploma in Pharmacy courses for the seats declared vacant this year. Even those who had appeared for GujCET in 2009 and 2010 are eligible for the fresh round of admissions. GTU officials have also received the notification regarding MBA, MCA admissions. Academicians say the move will attract students from other states, too. However, the admission process has to be completed by October 13. An engineering college principal said on condition of anonymity, The state education department could have issued the notification earlier. ACPC concluded the admission process two months ago. If students are given admission now, there will be a lot of confusion on the term they will be granted, not to mention issues of attendance. That apart, the first semester exam will be held next month. How will these new students prepare for it when they have missed so many lectures A large majority of vacant engineering seats are in electronics and communication, computer engineering, information technology and civil engineering disciplines. Last year, Directorate of Technical Education had sent a proposal to the state government, suggesting allocation of five per cent of the seats from those reserved as management quota to those who sought admission to professional programmes, but had failed to write Gujarat Common Entrance Test (GujCET). Sources told Mirror that the proposal is likely to be accepted by the state government. The proposal, sources said, was a result of sustained lobbying by the private colleges that have come up in a big way in the state, but have failed to fill their seats and are struggling financially.
