“For reserved category candidates, if leaving certificate is not acquired from the schools yet by students then a bona-fide certificate from the school principal stating their religion, caste, mother tongue and date of birth should suffice. However, if the student produces caste certificate then it is not mandatory for them to produce bona-fide certificates from students,” said Meenakshi Raut, Assistant Director of Education, Pune.
For students who are seeking admissions under reservations such as sports, cultural, handicapped, ex-servicemen category and so on, the students have to produce the certificates at the concerned help centres, and after verification, their applications will be approved.
Students from outside the state can refer to page 27 and 28 of the information booklet which has details of the zone-wise guidance centres and produce the given documents in person to get the application approved. “The students, who come from CBSE or ICSE board, will have to get their marks converted either at centres appointed by their board or from their respective schools,” she added.
