To avoid panic on the last couple of days of first year law admissions, city colleges have requested the state CET cell to extend the admission deadline by a few days. November 10 is the last day for admissions to these courses and anxious students have been thronging law colleges in the city, looking for some kind of extension to finish the process.
“We’ve been receiving calls all morning because many students are travelling from various parts of the state and country to confirm their admissions. We have requested the state CET cell to extend the deadline by a few days,” said the principal of Lala Lajpatrai College of Law. She added that for the time being, students have been asked to return with their demand drafts to confirm admissions tomorrow .
The deadline for the first year law admissions was recently extended to November 10 but the government’s sudden decision to shut banks and ATMs for two days might see the deadline getting extended by another few days. “Extending the deadline by one or two days will not help because we are nearing a weekend. We have requested the state CET cell to extend the deadline till November 15,” said the principal of a suburban law institute.
While the CET commissioner is yet to release a circular in this matter, principal of New Law College in Mahim said that even if there’s no extension, students need not panic. “Banks are open tomorrow so students still have time to finish this process,” said principal NM Rajyadhaksha.
