Mumbai: Students applying for an MBBS course at medical colleges in the state including private and government colleges are finding it difficult to complete the admission procedure because of heavy rains. The third merit round for the admission, issued by the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) and the State CET Cell is scheduled on Thursday. The students have requested the department to either postpone the last day or give additional some days.
If the final date is scheduled for Thursday, the names of the students will be listed in their respective colleges by Tuesday which means they will have Wednesday to Thursday in their hands to complete the admission procedure in order to secure a seat at the medical colleges.
According to an official from Nanded University, “Since the last two days all the roadways have been disrupted completely because of heavy rainfall. Only today we could use our mobile phones as it was disconnected too. Moreover the banks are shut, so how are we supposed to make the payment for admissions?”
Meanwhile, Chandrashekar Oak, the Director of DTE said, “All this is not in my hands as the dates and schedule are framed by the Supreme Court and we have orders to complete the admission process of MBBS by August 31. However, if the situations prevail we can get it examined and get a solution.”
