Your suggestions may help rid junior college admissions of long queues and painstaking procedures. Online admissions are closer than ever before from being implemented.
State Education Minister Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil, called for a first-of-its-kind-interactive session between the decision makers and the larger stakeholders.
The open forum meeting on Monday discussed at length the workability of the online admissions. “We need your suggestions to make this happen. There is a lot of fine tuning required but we will get there,” said Patil.
Dr Aatul Wadegaonkar, general manager, educational eGovernance, from the Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Limited, presented the software which has been specially designed for the website which will be launched for online admissions.
“Students will no longer have to run around to get admission forms. They will get the final admission lists on the website as well as information through SMSes and e-mails,” said Wadegaonkar.
Principals and officials also discussed issues on minority quotas, certificate submissions, fees structures, revenue sharing, the percentile method, centralised admissions and the CBSE, ICSE and SSC result dates.
