Ending two months of acrimony, Maharashtra government has finally agreed to allow CBSE students who appeared for school evaluated examination into state-board schools and junior colleges. However, the permission is for the current year only.
State education board chairperson Ujjwala Patil said, "Since CBSE had requested us, we decided to accept their students for the current academic session keeping the students' future in mind. Also the number of such students is not much, hence it should not be a problem. The order has been issued to every education officer in the state." This comes as a huge relief to parents in Nagpur who had approached the courts to find solution to the deadlock. In June, the state had said that school-evaluated students will be admitted to its junior colleges only if they cleared an external exam conducted by the CBSE. This move was followed by the CISCE (which conducts the ICSE and ISC exam) also refusing to admit the school-evaluated CBSE students. On July 1, the CBSE chairman Vineet Joshi, however, managed to strike a deal with CISCE. Manjot Singh, spokesperson for the Aggrieved Parents Forum (APF), said, "We are thankful to CM and education minister Rajendra Darda for solving our problem. This would not have been possible without the help of Nitin Raut and management of Centre Point School who supported us. We have now instructed our lawyers to withdraw the petition in the high court. All the parents are relieved that this issue has been resolved. Our children can now concentrate on their studies. The children have shown great mental strength and patience throughout." For Nagpur, the admission process will start next week. Mahesh Karajgaonkar, deputy director (education), said, "the education minister has asked us to proceed with admissions of CBSE students without any conditions. The centralized admission process in Nagpur is more or less over. Now CBSE students will be considered for the leftover seats. I am waiting for a written order from government after which we will officially inform all colleges by Monday. The admissions can start after that." Patil said, "ICSE board had also earlier refused to admit the school-evaluated students but agreed to do so just for this session. Our government too has decided to follow suit as we don't want these students to suffer. We have made it very clear that this exemption is only for this year."
