Like every year, this year too the numbers of seats in engineering colleges are much more than the numbers of applicants registered for admissions. While the date of registration has been increased by two days by the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), the officials are expecting only a marginal rise in the numbers. On 28th June, the earlier deadline for registration, only around 1.14 lakh students had registered for admissions.
However, there are over 1.5 lakh seats available in engineering colleges across the state. The DTE has extended the date up to 30th June. "Many a times, students are unable to get the required documents like the non-creamy layer certificates and the domicile certificates on time. We are hoping to help such candidates by extending the date," said the official. He added that numbers might go up. Several engineering seats go vacant every year in engineering colleges. With the supply more than the demand, the Maharashtra state government has even written to the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) to not approve any new colleges in the state. Last year too, more than 30,000 seats were vacant after the centralized admission process (CAP) rounds. In spite of several requests from the state government, the AICTE gave approvals to new institutes for this academic year too. This will lead to more numbers of vacant seats in the states engineering colleges, said an official. He added that there is no point in conducting an entrance test to engineering colleges in the state.
