students Management quota is very popular in engineering colleges considering eligibility norms of 50 per cent marks for general category and 45 per cent for reserved classes.

Students have been advised against applying for admissions through management quota in engineering colleges if they do not fulfill the criterion of minimum marks.

Management quota is very popular in engineering colleges considering eligibility norms of 50 per cent marks for general category and 45 per cent for reserved classes.

Over 5,000 students, who had applied for the centralised admission process for engineering colleges for academic year 2014-15, were termed ‘non-eligible’ by the State Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) for not fulfilling eligibility norms.

Speaking with Newsline, DTE Pune region in-charge P V Sarode, said eligibility norms were applicable for management quota admissions too.

“Students should not take admissions through management quota if they do not have minimum marks mentioned in the CAP brochure or they would suffer academic losses. Engineering colleges have been asked to strictly follow eligibility norms related to marks.  Colleges violating these norms are meted out with strict punishment that includes double the penalty of actual fee for seat concerned,” he said.

Sarode said DTE every year carries out scrutiny of each and every admission done through CAP to check any violations of admission related rules. Vijay Naval Patil, head of association of managements of private educational organisations, said engineering colleges are duty-bound to follow eligibility norms while taking admissions under the management quota.

Hrishikesh Marale, a class XII student, who has narrowly missed eligibility norms for engineering admission said government should reconsider admissions criteria. “Students, if determined, can lift their performance at any level,” Marale  said.

Kedar Takalkar, head of advocacy group ‘Pravesh Prakriya Forum’, said government should have revised eligibility norms considering large number of engineering seats bound to remain vacant for academic year 2014-15.

“The eligibility norms for engineering were even challenged in the court, but judiciary ruled in the favour of the government,” he said.
