The state's CET cell on Tuesday decided to extend admissions for the three-ye ar LLB programme to July 15. Registrations were to end on Wednesday . Delay in declaration of results by Mumbai University has forced the CET cell to revise dates, delaying the process in the state.
An official from the state's CET cell said the director has asked all universities for a tentative schedule of results by July 15.“There is no point in extending dates arbitrarily. We will decide before July 15 if we have to extend the deadline. While other universities may declare results by then, we are not sure how long Mumbai University will take to announce results,“ said the official. Students are worried about losing one whole semester like last year. “Law admissions went on till November 12, giving only about six months to study . If we do not get our undergraduate results, we will not be eligible for admissions. If they decide to start the process without our results, we won't get a seat of our choice,“ said a student. Most law aspirants in the state are from Mumbai, followed by Pune.
Law Students' Council president, Sachin Pawar, said the university's lack of professional approach has put students in a very delicate situation. “We demand the immediate resignation of the vice-chancellor and director of examination department and appointment of new officers to the post,“ said Pawar, in a letter to governor.
