The admission process for non-professional courses will start after class 12 results are declared in Maharashtra, state Higher and Technical Education Minister Uday Samant said on Sunday. He said there were options of either conducting CET for admissions to non-technical courses or conduct the admission process based on class 12 marks.
“Class 12 board exams have been cancelled, and only after the results are declared, we will decide on having CET or not,” he added. Samant, who interacted with teacher’s outfits that have been protesting seeking recruitment in universities, said the state government had decided to fill 4,074 posts and the process for 1,600 had already been completed.
The process for the remaining posts was on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic but the file has been processed, and following approval by Deputy Chief Minister and Finance Minister Ajit Pawar, a government resolution would be issued soon, he said.
