Staff Reporter,

During the beginning of admissions to engineering colleges this year it looked that, there would be no takers. But the round one of Centralised Admission Process (CAP) gave a different picture. Some colleges in Nagpur region got good number of students. Now CAP II has begun and will end on Sunday, July 8. The CAP rounds for MBA will be held between July 10 and 12. The CAP round I ended on July 5. Some colleges still remained affected. Some colleges those did not perform last year surprisingly got good acceptance from the students.

Though the response from the students is quite good, it does not mean that the vacancy position would change. The vacancy issue would still haunt the institute managements. Last year Government Engineering College (GoE) remained the most sought after among all the colleges. But this year Shri Ramdeobaba College of Engineering and Management (RCOEM) stood at number one with Yashwantrao Chavan College of Engineering (YCCE) following it. GoE came third. The Rajiv Gandhi College of Engineering and Research, Dr

Babasaheb Ambedkar College of Engineering and Research (DBACER), both the Meghe Group colleges performed well than last year. Bajaj Institute of Technology, Wardha continued to perform. St. Vincent Palloti College of Engineering; G H Raisoni College of Engineering (GHRCER); S B Jain Institute of Engineering and Technology; Datta Meghe Institute of Engineering, Wardha; Tulsiram Gaikwad Patil College of Engineering and Technology (TGPCET); Vidarbha Institute of Technology (VIT); Cummins College of Engineering for Women; Pandav College of Engineering; KDK; Nagpur Institute of Technology (NIT); Govindrao Wanjari College of Engineering; Wainganga College of Engineering; Priyadarshini College of Engineering (PCE); Priyadarshini Institute of Engineering and Technology (PIET); J D College of Engineering, Jhulelal Institute of Technology (JIT) got good acceptance by students in CAP II also.

Diploma institutes to face music

The Polytechnic colleges are facing the problems of vacancy. In 2016 about  97,000 seats remained vacant in Maharashtra in diploma institutes. In 2017, in Nagpur region alone for 30,000 diploma seats only 6,000 students registered themselves. This year for 21,000 seats in Nagpur region till Friday, 1,723 students registered. The last date is July 16. The institutes feel that by the last date Class XI admissions would finish and students may turn towards Post-SSC Diploma courses.

Diploma courses out of ARA

The three Diploma courses that come under Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) have been brought out of the purview of Admission Regulating Authority (ARA) (Pravesh Niyantran Samiti). They are Engineering and Technology Diploma, Pharmacy Diploma and Hotel Management and Catering Technology. The procedure of admission will not change. The schemes like Rajshri Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj Tuition Fee Scholarship Scheme and Dr Punjabrao Deshmukh Hostel Scheme will remain the same.
