Over 14,000 polytechnic seats to remain vacant in Nagpur division
In the wake of engineering and technical academics, it is currently the turn of polytechnics crosswise over Maharashtra to gaze on to a number of empty seats, as indicated by sources from Directorate of Technical Education (DTE). Around 1.25 lakh seats are accessible over 550 polytechnics in the state out of aggregate admission of more than 1.81 lakh seats (rest are topped off through management quota).
In Nagpur division, there are 25,691 seats at 71 universities, yet till Monday, which was due date for accommodation of forms, and just 11,674 applications were received at different Application Receipt Centres (ARCs). This demonstrated that more than 14,000 seats, which were 45% of aggregate, would stay empty this year too, as sources brought up.
The circumstance was pretty much same in different divisions, in spite of the way that general SSC results hopped by 3.14% from 88.32% to 91.46% this year. All divisions, aside from Mumbai, saw their most elevated ever achievement rate with more than 14 lakh competitors clearing the SSC exams. Nagpur results were up by 4.08% while Amravati by 2.73% contrasted with a year ago. Indeed, even CBSE results expanded for this present year.
All these had upturned trusts among the school managements that the pattern of empty seats being seen since most recent couple of years, basically because of escalating of universities, would be switched. With poor reaction to the offer of structures, their trusts were ruined, sources included.
Joint Director of Technical Education Gulab Thakre agreed and quoted, “We will not extend the deadline like we did for engineering admissions. It would hardly make any difference, even if we extend last dates.”
