Pune: The Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), on Thursday, declared that an additional round of admissions will be conducted for 15,000 seats of degree courses in government and government-aided engineering colleges across the State. The dates will be updated soon on their website.
Officials from DTE, Pune region, have stated that if any vacancy remains after the three rounds of admission under the Centralised Admission Process (CAP), government and aided colleges will have a separate additional round of admission.
“The government colleges were considering to take an independent round of admissions to fill their vacant seats. So that the dates of their admission in any government colleges don’t clash with each other, DTE has decided to have a separate round for them. Due to this, students will not miss out on any chance of admission to any preferred colleges. It will instead ease their work,” said Rajendra Gaikwad, Additional Joint Director of DTE, Pune region.
“Students are generally more inclined towards government colleges, therefore only these colleges have been considered for a separate round. The procedures of it will be completed by August 14. All the details will be updated shortly on the website,” said DR Nandanwar, Joint Director of DTE, Pune Region.
The DTE has informed that the additional round of admission will be conducted strictly for government and government-aided engineering colleges only and not for unaided or private colleges.
Meanwhile, a few students have been left out of admission in any engineering colleges even after the third round. To which officials have stated that this must have happened because students have not filled the forms properly according to the cut-offs or so. “These students can directly approach the colleges for admissions,” said Nandanwar.
"There are no chances of donation in direct admissions. If there are vacancies, colleges need to fill those seats as well. Still, students are suggested to verify the fees allowed by Fee Regulation Authority (FRA) to the college and wisely take admissions,” said the officials.
