The office of the deputy director of school education has released a list of the 2.89 lakh seats available for first year junior college (FYJC) admissions this year. This includes in-house and minority quota seats.
The online admissions have been delayed by almost three weeks now.
According to officials, confusion over Maratha and Muslim quota in colleges has delayed preparations by a month this year.

“We have started handing over the user manuals (for the online process) to school principals, starting this week.
Students will be able to fill the first part of the application form by next week,” said BD Phadtare, deputy director of education, Mumbai. Last year, the online form-filling for students had begun on April 24.
This year, 2,88,932 seats are available, of which 1,62,841 will be under the online process.
The remaining 1,26,091 will be under the offline process for various quotas like in-house, management and minority.
This year, the state had announced reservation for Marathas and Muslims.
“We couldn’t start work until a final decision on the quota was taken. If it was implemented this year, it would have meant changing our online system to make provisions for reservation of 16 per cent seats for Marathas,” he added.
