Officials at the MSBHSE are upset over the letter by MKCL
Agency in charge of centralised admissions hints at June
15 as date of results; state education board not saying anything.
A few days ago, the chairperson of Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary
Education (MSBSHSE) announced that the State Secondary Certificate (SSC) examination
results would be out by June 15. With just a day to go and no official intelligence
yet, the students are sceptical if the board will deliver on its word.
Even college principals, who had hoped to come out with the first merit list by
July 1 and begin the academic year for the junior college by mid-July, are disappointed.
"So far, we haven’t heard of any commitment from the board on results. And though
we are completely prepared to start the admissions, we will have to wait and watch.
We wished that this year, at least, they keep the deadline as last year junior college
started in August and in such a situation, we have a tough time completing portions
and conducting exams," said a college principal.
The Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Limited (MKCL), on the other hand, issued
a press note announcing that they were prepared to start the FYJC admissions, once
results were declared on June 15.
Officials at the MSBHSE are upset over the letter as MKCL is the agency that is
supposed to oversee centralised admissions online and is not concerned with the
declaration of results. The note has put the MSBSHSE officials in a tight spot as
it insinuates the results will be out on June 15.
The board, however, is not prepared to commit to this deadline or announce it officially.
MSBSHSE secretary Shahaji Dhekne gave a terse reply when asked about the SSC results.
"Officially, we haven’t declared the dates. If the MKCL sent any such letter, it
was wrong as they have no right to do so." Realising their folly, the MKCL authorities
tried to evade the subject.
Vivek Sawant, managing director of MKCL, did not answer when asked about the confusion.
"The FYJC admissions have gone online and we have already received thousands of
application. Over the issue of the letter, please speak to the regional head and
get the details," he replied.
