More engineering seats remain vacant in Maharashtra engineering colleges

Published On: 30 Jun 2012

The engineering colleges in Maharashtra  this year too have more seats than the number of applicants registering for admissions.

The Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) has extended the dates for registration to June 30, 2012 for engineering seats but is expecting only a marginal increase in the number of applicants.  The earlier deadline for registration was June 28, 2012. As per the deadline only 1.14 lakh candidates have registered for engineering admissions. However, the state of Maharashtra has over 1.5 lakh seats in engineering colleges across the state.

Officials from DTE stated that the dates were extended to help students obtain the necessary documents such as non-creamy layer and domicile certificates. They also added that the deadline extension would increase the number of candidates applying for the seats.

With several engineering seats remaining vacant every year, the Maharashtra state government has urged All India Council of Technical Education (AITCE) not to approve any new colleges for the state.

In 2011, after the Centralized Admission Process (CAP) rounds there were more than 30,000 seats that remained vacant. Despite several requests to the AITCE, the council had approved new colleges in 2011 leading to increase in the number of vacant seats. Officials from the DTE also stated that with such large number of seats holding entrance examinations for engineering seats in the state colleges will serve no purpose.
