Law Aspirants Struggle for Admission; May Lose a Year
More than 10,000 seats are still lying vacant in Maharashtra while ERA rejected the plea of state CET cell to hold another round of admission.

At a time when law aspirants are trying hard to get a seat into the colleges for admission, there are more than 10,000 seats still lying vacant in different colleges across the state of Maharashtra. Surprisingly, the Exam Regulatory Authority (ERA) on Wednesday, 23 November 2016 rejected the plea of state Common Entrance Test (CET) cell to hold an additional round for admission for these remaining 10,000 seats .

Now these aspiring candidates have to wait for another year to secure a seat in the five-year and three-year law courses. And they have no other options but to curse their own fate.

The number of vacant seats remained unoccupied in unaided and aided colleges across the state are as follows-

  • Around 4,555 seats in the three-year course
  • Around 6,337 seats in the five-year course

Chandrasekhar Oak, Commissioner of CET cell said that they had proposed to the state government of Maharashtra for an additional round. But the government on its part expressed its opinion that those admitted through this additional round would face the problem, as the newly admitted candidates would not be able to complete the required academic term of 90-day before the exams.

The commissioner also said that the state government had made its recommendations to the Exam Regulatory Authority (ERA) but refused to accept CET cell’s proposal. Following the complaints of many students that they had not been allocated the seats even though seats were vacant, the CET cell had forwarded a proposal to the ERA.

The aspiring students are not happy with the ERA’s decision and termed it “unfair”. Sachin Pawar, a representative of the students' law council said that it is not the aspirants’ mistakes that the admission process was so delayed. Students are being denied admissions to the courses anticipating that they can't complete the course on time.
