Technical glitches in the online portal for first year junior college (FYJC) admissions, has prompted the officials to extend the last date for admissions to June 29.

“The date for filling online admission forms for Class 11 has been extended to June 29, and the portal will be open till 5 pm,” said Dinker Temkar, deputy director of education.

This update comes after a series of technical issues with the FYJC online portal, which jeopardised the admissions of many students, and prompted the others to lodge complaints against the portal and authorities. Following this, a one-day shut down of the online portal had been declared by education minister Vinod Tawde.

Deputy Director of Education, Dinker Temkar, confirmed, “For the convenience of the students from Mumbai, Amravati and other regions we have extended the deadline by 2 days. Now the date filling admission online forms for Class 11, has been extended to June 29, and the portal will be open till 5 pm. The decision has been taken keeping in mind the technical issues experienced by students while filling the forms.”

“The website will be shut on June 21, Wednesday, to fix problems. Even if this delays the admissions by a day, parents and students should not panic. It is being done to ensure that students do not face any technical difficulties while entering their college choices and filling out the online application form,” Tawde had announced on June 22.

Out of over two lakh students passing the Class 10 Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exams and applying for admissions, only 67,289 students had fully completed the application. Due to the technical glitches, almost 30,000 students, were to fill Part 1 of the form.

However, as opposed to the Mumbai scenario, where students had suffered because of the issues, officials confirmed that Pune students had not been prey to the instances where the portal slowed down or crashed.
