After three rounds of admissions to the 3-year LLB programme have been completed, 47.6% of the seats are yet to be filled. There are a total of 15,113 seats available in the law colleges in Maharashtra, out of which nearly 50% of the seats are expected to be filled in the fourth and final round of admissions.
The Maharashtra State CET cell announced that more than 18,000 applications have been received till Thursday, 7th November 2019. A University official stated that many of the applications that have been received have either been rejected or put on hold due to several reasons.
The official stated that the expectations are to fill the vacant seats by the end of the final round, however, some applications have incorrect information entered, while others have only mentioned the aggregate scores of the final year graduation. Among the applications that have been received by the CET cell are also new registrations. The official also added that the final number of applications are expected to increase by 8th November 2019.
Previously, there were more than 400 seats that were left vacant after the fourth and the final round of law admissions in the state. However, the CET cell hopes that the same is not repeated this year and expects to fill in the rest of the seats in the final round of admissions.
Siddharth Single, President of Maharashtra Students’ Law Association stated that the countless number of students have been disqualified from the admission process due to the changed policy by the state. As per the policy, the applicants are expected to provide the aggregate score of all the three years score in the undergraduate programme. He added that the matter will be taken up with the government.
