Mumbai: FYJC admissions to begin from Monday, with extra emphasis on improved online process

Mumbai: The state education department of Maharashtra will for the first time use a new online system for the first leg of FYJC admissions, which will begin in Mumbai from Monday. The new online process will make it easier for students to apply. The Bombay High Court had come hard on the state government following last year’s troubles for students regarding the admissions. The government’s firm Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Limited (MKCL) has been replaced by a new software created by Nysa Asia as the education department’s technical partner.

From Thursday, the software was being tested for FYJC admissions in Pune. “We started the process in Pune on Thursday, as the city has fewer students than Mumbai. This will give us time to iron out issues by the time Mumbai registrations start and we will have a fair idea of how the new system is working,” said BB Chavan, the deputy director of education, reported Hindustan Times. The students will be provided with information booklets with log in IDs and passwords for the online application and it will be distributed to schools in the Mumbai region (includes Navi Mumbai, Thane, and Raigad) from Monday onwards.

“By Wednesday, students can sign into the new admissions portal — http://mumbai.11thadmission.net/,” Chavan said after meeting education minister Vinod Tawde and director of secondary education N Jarag on Thursday. “It might take two or three days to distribute the information booklets, and soon after that, students should be able to register on the website,” added Chavan.

The process for the admissions has been already delayed by a month, so education officials have proposed that the new admission portal should come in effect from next year. The officials have asked the education minister to allow class 12 students to apply offline. Chavan further added that, “Moving the Class 12 admissions online seems difficult because of this delay, and it should be attempted next year,” he said. Chavan added, “With an entirely new agency and a revamped admission procedure, we will be unable to concentrate on both Class 11 and Class 12 at the same time.”

If education minister Tawde’s proposal gets nod then it will come as a huge relief for class 12 students who want to change colleges.
The students were left in the lurch as colleges were forced to put admissions on hold after the department said that changing of colleges can only be done through centralised process. “We have been waiting for instructions from the government for at least two months. Several students approached us for admissions, but we are unable to admit them,” said Kavita Rege, the principal, Sathaye College, Vile Parle. “Once SSC results are out, colleges will get busy with FYJC admissions, and Class 12 admissions will get stuck,” said a parent, who had approached the education department on Thursday to meet officials over this issue.
