In a major respite, the Madhya Pradesh higher education department on Monday extended the deadline till Tuesday for students seeking admission in Master of Education, Bachelor of Physical Education, Master of Physical Education and the combined Bachelor of Education and Master of Education courses.

Development comes after the department received complaint from thousands of students that many of them failed to prepare bank demand draft as Saturday and Sunday were bank holidays.

Now, the department will allow them to submit their verified documents and bank demand draft on Tuesday. Notably, students need to submit demand draft of prescribed amount and verified documents for getting admitted.

The department awarded seats to aspirants on merit basis between June 23-27 after conducting first round of counselling for admission between June 10 and 19. Earlier, the higher education department has fixed June 27 as deadline for submitting fee and documents, including transfer and migration certificates.

With fresh update, the department will release seat status list at various colleges on June 29, instead June 28. Schedule for the second round of counselling will remain same.

Slow document verification irks students

Meanwhile, scores of students in Indore were left in a fix due to slow document verification.

Gourav Upadhyaya, one of the students who came to Govt Maharani Laxmibai Girls PG College for his document verification, alleged that verification process was very slow.

“Over 500 aspirants have turned to the college, but verification of hardly 100 has been done so far. Officials asking for both migration and transfer certificate, but as per rule, aspirants need to furnish either one of document at the time of verification. They might be doing it intentionally just to cut down crowd here,” Upadhyay said.

In Indore, verification of documents is being done at all five government colleges.

On April 24, the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board conducted an online B.Ed entrance test for 55,000 seats lying vacant at over 550 BEd colleges in the state. More than 60,000 candidates registered for the exam. When it comes to Indore district, there are about 2,549 seats lying vacant in 31 B.Ed colleges.

This was for the first time, the entrance exam was held online across the state. The admission in the colleges will be based on scores of the entrance exam.
