Maharashtra: B-school aspirants seek clarity in CET normalisation process

MUMBAI: For over three weeks, some of the B-school aspirants who gave the state's common entrance test (CET) for MBA/MMS in three of the five slots have been doing the rounds of the CET cell to seek transparency in the normalisation process. While the ones who gave the test in slot one are claiming to be the most disadvantaged, students in slots four and five also are alleging that their percentile scores may have been scaled down as their question papers were comparatively easier. TimesviewThe state’s CET cell needs to fix the anomaly in the normalisation process, if any, at the earliest or give a satisfactory explanation to the students. The process needs to be made as transparent as possible. In a competitive exam taken over a period of time, it is advisable to keep the difficulty level similar in all slots. Students cannot be penalised for choosing a particular slotThe CET cell follows the normalisation method, but with little transparency for the last two years, claim students and teachers. CET results were declared on September 11. While earlier the question papers had four defined sections - quant, logic, English, abstract reasoning - for the last two years, the questions from all sections are jumbled up, said a mentor from a leading coaching class. "It is also unfair that the number of questions in each of these sections are not uniform. For instance, the quant section in one slot may have 40 questions, and in another slot, 20 questions," he said. Ideally, if the exam is conducted over multiple slots, efforts should be taken to keep the difficulty level as similar as possible, said ttihe mentor, adding that none of the high percentilers is from slot one. Students claimed that slots two and three were the most difficult ones, and many students from these slots got higher percentiles and are eligible for admissions to JBIMS, one of the most sought-after institutes in the state. Even with the dissimilarities, normalisation process would have helped straighten the differences in the difficulty level. But if the scores were normalised, each of the slots would have seen an equal representation of 99.9+ percentilers, which is not the case, said an aspirant. Another teacher pointed out that unlike CAT, the CET cell has not given the scaled down scores of students, leaving no scope for transparency. "Students only have percentiles. They used to share data of all students in a PDF, which has been discontinued now. There's no way to understand the system, it's a complete black hole," alleged the teacher. A CET cell official confirmed they have got complaints but said they have used the same normalisation method used in the past and there is no anomaly in the process.

MUMBAI: The University of Mumbai issued a circular on Tuesday postponing all semester-end winter exams scheduled to start in the coming week. The revised dates for the exams will be issued by the university soon, but it will be scheduled after Diwali. While final-year students across courses had been demanding deferment of the exams for some time, the university has postponed even first- and second-year exams. A total of 450 exams were postponed on Tuesday. The decision to change the exam timetable was taken in a board of examinations and evaluations meeting, after the university received several appeals from students. TOI had earlier reported that final-year students from DG Ruparel, RD National, Rizvi, Vikas colleges had written to the university. In their letter, students have claimed that the exam schedule was released at a short notice and they have not been given adequate time to practice to grapple with physical exams, especially when long-form answers are expected. For two years, these students have given online exams where the papers had multiple-choice questions (MCQs). Students had asked the university to schedule the semester V exam after Diwali, when the ATKT (allowed to keep term) exams are scheduled, which will give them a study break. Last Wednesday, senate members affiliated to Yuva Sena also gheraoed the acting director (board of examinations and evaluations), Prasad Karande, in his office and sought postponement of exams.

CBI detains Russian national in JEE-Mains exam manipulation case

A Russian national was detained at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport in Delhi Monday and is currently being questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with its probe into the irregularities in the Joint Entrance Examination (Mains) exams conducted in 2021, said officials.The accused has been identified as Mikhail Shargin who is suspected to have tampered with the software that is used to conduct the exams.“The accused was detained by the Bureau of Immigration at IGI Airport, Delhi while he arrived from Almaty, Kazakhstan. A lookout circular was opened against him,” a CBI spokesperson said.According to the CBI, it came to light during the investigation that some foreign nationals were involved in compromising many online examinations, including JEE (Mains), by colluding with the other accused in the case.The JEE (Mains) is held for admission to undergraduate engineering programmes (B.E/B.Tech) at NITs, IIITs, other Centrally- Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), and certain institutions or universities recognised by some state governments.“The role of one Russian national who had allegedly tampered with the iLeon software (the platform on which the JEE (Main)-2021 examination was conducted) was revealed. He helped other accused in hacking the computer systems of suspect candidates during the examination. Therefore, a lookout circular was opened against the Russian national,” the spokesperson said.In September last year, the CBI had conducted searches at 19 locations across Delhi NCR, Pune, Jamshedpur, Indore, and Bangalore apart from arresting 11 people. As many as 25 laptops, 7 PCs, around 30 post-dated cheques along with voluminous incriminating documents/devices including PDC’s marksheet of different students were seized during the time.Sources said the racket was being run by a Noida-based company—Affinity Education Pvt Ltd—in connivance with those managing online examination centres in Haryana and elsewhere.Those candidates who had paid money to the company will get the answers solved by ‘solvers’ remotely arranged by an associate in Jharkhand. The candidates themselves would merely pretend to be appearing in the exam, sources said.“While the initial information was about an examination centre at Sonepat in Haryana, we have now learnt there are more such centres around Sonepat which had been compromised by the accused. Candidates from as far as Maharashtra had come to appear for the exams at Sonepat. We are also probing if they have done this last year and already got some students admitted to premier engineering institutes. It is likely there are more such institutes. The probe is on in this matter,” a CBI officer said.Top rankers in JEE (Mains) get a chance to appear for JEE (Advance) which is an examination for admission into IITs. Since, 2020 the exams are being held online in four sessions and multiple shifts every year.According to the First Information Report (FIR) registered by the CBI, Affinity Education was registered with the Registrar of Companies in 2019 with Vishvambhar Mani Tripathi, Siddharth Krishna and Govind Varshney as its directors. The company also has an office in Pune.Krishna and Tripathy were arrested by the CBI in September along with other employees of the company who have been identified as Ritik Singh, Anjum Dawoodani, Animesh Singh and Ajinkya Patil. Ranjit Singh Thakur from Jharkhand, who arranged for solvers, has also been arrested.CBI investigations have found that the accused scouted for students willing to appear for the exams fraudulently against a payment of Rs 12-15 lakh. The accused allegedly took post-dated cheques from the candidates and kept their original Class X and Class XII marksheets as security. The idea, sources said, was to encash the cheques after the candidates secured a place in the merit list.The accused also “collected the User ID and Password of the candidates appearing for the examination and made necessary modification for getting desired examination centres as planned by them. The counselors also collect a copy of the downloaded admit card of the candidates in advance before the examination,” the CBI has said in its FIR.One of the accused’s associate—Ranjeet Singh Thakur from Adityapur in Jharkhand — arranged for solvers for these candidates.According to the CBI, this person would arrange “a solver sitting at a remote location for solving the questions which are displayed on the computer terminal allotted to the candidate at the examination centre in connivance with the centre authorities. The centre supervisor who has access to the computer network is also a part of the fraudulent act and the solver gets access to the system being used by the candidate by using remote access software. The candidates are directed to pretend that they are operating the computer by keeping their hand on a mouse and making calculations on a sheet so that nothing adverse is recorded in the camera installed at the centre whereas the questions are solved by solvers.”

Maharashtra IMA urges govt to defer decision to reserve 20% PG medical seats for in-service doctors

The Maharashtra unit of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has urged state medical education minister Girish Mahajan to defer the government resolution on reserving 20 per cent seats in post-graduate medical courses for in-service doctors till the next academic year. According to the government, the practice would ensure specialised medical help in public sector health facilities in rural and tribal areas.In a letter sent to the minister, Maharashtra IMA president Dr Suhas Pingale has pointed out that the counselling process for the seats has already started and the untimely implementation of the policy would mean meritorious candidates lose out on their seats. “The in-service quota can be implemented from the next academic year after prior intimation of the exam appearing candidates. We request you to hear the grievances and stall the implementation for the academic year 2022-23,” Dr Pingale has appealed.The government resolution of September 26 on the in-service quota was issued on short notice and came after the registration for all India counselling and Maharashtra state counselling. Implementation of the in-service rule has led to uncertainty for those who had an assurance of getting a government seat and they cannot go back and revert the deposit for semi-private and deemed colleges or edit the form for the same, IMA office-bearers said.As the round for all India quota is over, many students did not opt for DNB seats either because they were assured of getting a good seat through the counselling process in Maharashtra. This untimely implementation and sudden introduction of the in-service rule has created a lot of uncertainty and anxiety in many such candidates. The counselling was delayed by five months and still there was no proper intimation of a 20% reservation for in-service candidates, the letter has stated.If candidates were properly informed, they would have proceeded accordingly. This has led to many meritorious candidates losing out on their seats because of the unfair and sudden imposition of in-service quota, the letter added.Dr Chinmay Akre, state joint secretary, Indian Medical Association Junior Doctor Network Maharashtra, said the quota will affect the seats intended for open category, and those on the borderline will bear the brunt. “Most of those who qualified did not opt for other states as they thought they would attain seats here based on merit in the exam. This resolution without prior disclosure would mean deserving entrants lose out on their seats, which is quite unfair,” Dr Akre said.

From this academic year, all BTech undergraduate programmes at the CoEP Technological University (College of Engineering, Pune) will have 25 per cent more seats for admissions. For the first time, the university will allot these additional seats in each of the BTech programmes to the all India candidates, on the basis of their merit/score in the national level JEE Mains examination 2022.Meanwhile, the original 100 per cent seats are reserved and available for Maharashtra state candidates (Maharashtra domiciled), exactly as per previous year, on the basis of their merit/scores in the state’s MHT-CET 2022, with other eligibility criteria as decided by the state government, with no change in them when compared to the previous year, said university officials. Besides, Maharashtra domiciled candidates can also compete in the AIQ quota for BTech courses.The university officials confirmed that there is no change in MTech, MPlanning and MBA admissions quota i.e. intake capacity is same as that of previous year. There are a total of 486 seats for various MTech programmes, 31 for MPlanning programme and 30 for MBA programme.“There is no change in the intake capacity of the MTech or MBA seats. There is also no change in the number of seats, eligibility criteria and the process for Direct Second Year (UG) admissions, by lateral entry. The change is in the intake capacity of the BTech undergraduate programmes but it will have no impact on the admissions of students from Maharashtra. The All India quota admissions will take place through the additional 25 per cent seats being allotted from this year,” said Mukul Sutaone, officiating director of CoEP Technological University.For MTech and MPlanning programmes, 75 per cent of the total seats will remain for non-sponsored category candidates and 25 per cent for sponsored students. All the seats are available jointly for Maharashtra candidates and all India candidates, taken together. For both, Maharashtra and all India candidates, the eligibility criteria remains the same entrance exam for admission, viz. GATE, CEED exam (along with GATE for MPlanning). For MBA admissions, 85 per cent seats are for state level candidates and 15 per cent for all India candidates.Like the previous years, all the undergraduate and post graduate admissions of CoEP Technological University, Pune will be conducted through the Centralised Admission Process (CAP), hosted by the Maharashtra State Common Entrance Test Cell. The number of allotments rounds and counselling rounds also remain unaltered.

Maharashtra education department may bring exams back from standard III onwards

PUNE: The Maharashtra education department is thinking of bringing back exams and results for students from standards III to VIII, state school education minister Deepak Kesarkar told TOI on Sunday. The move may be undertaken with the aim of improving the quality of school education, especially in subjects such as English, science and mathematics. Term-end and unit test exams were stopped 10 years ago, and assessment has since been held on continuous and comprehensive evaluation and assessment tests, with a no-fail policy in practice. Kesarkar also said that any such decision will be made only after proper consultation with teachers and educators, adding that they are open to suggestions on this aspect from all corners. Meanwhile, teachers observed that a majority of schools in the state were already conducting exams alongside the no-fail policy. Kesarkar has been touring different cities to meet all stakeholders related to education, seeking an opinion on changes to be brought in the education system of Maharashtra, to bring it among the top three states in the country on this front. It currently stands at the number nine position. He said, "We will not take any decision in a hurry. Prior to making such big announcements, we are consulting experts in the field, as well as teachers. We welcome suggestions from all. We have started with the thought of bringing back a serious examination regime from standard III onwards as we felt that without exams, students feel relaxed and do not put in as much effort in their studies as required." Kesarkar added that the education department has decided to focus on three main subjects (English, science and mathematics) as many public surveys showed that students are lacking in these topics. "We are also conducting our own study on the level of success among students in these subjects and seeking an opinion on what strategies should be implemented to improve their performance. The process of identifying the gaps is ongoing and we will soon take decisions on some important aspects of education in Maharashtra," said the minister. Zilla parishad (ZP) schoolteacher Nitin Khandale from Chalisgaon, said, "The Right to Education (RTE) Act has discouraged exams. However, assessments are taking place anyway. Meanwhile, there is an incorrect perception among all that if there is no exam, there is no stress - which is not true." Another ZP schoolteacher, Santosh Musale, said, "In the present scenario, where the state has adopted continuous and comprehensive evaluation, a written exam is being conducted in two terms with varied marks, ranging from 20-50, depending on the standard. The students are evaluated and instead of percentages, they are given grades. We are waiting to hear what more the government is now intending to introduce other than this."

Tamil Nadu opposes NEET, its students perform better: share in 95 percentile doubles in 4 years

EVEN as the Tamil Nadu government has been opposing NEET saying the national medical college entrance exam skews the playing field against rural students, students from the state have consistently improved their performance.In four years, records show, the number of students from Tamil Nadu who were in the top 95 percentile of students qualifying NEET has doubled. This, as the number of students from TN who take NEET has grown by 7.38 per cent from 2019 to 2022 — the corresponding national figure is 16.3 per cent.In 2017-18, a Supreme Court ruling making NEET the only single-window examination for entry into any medical school in the country came into effect. Before NEET, admission to medical colleges in Tamil Nadu was mainly based on board marks.Since 2017, the state has tried to exempt itself from the exam. Not allowing NEET was the electoral promise of the ruling DMK party. Chief Minister M K Stalin introduced a Bill in the Assembly seeking exemption for Tamil Nadu students from NEET which was unanimously passed and now awaits the President’s assent.Data obtained by The Indian Express from the National Testing Agency (NTA), which conducts NEET, shows that the number of students from the state who figured among the top scorers has doubled in four years.To secure a seat in a government medical college, a student needs to get a high score or percentile and merely qualifying in the exam isn’t enough and hence the focus of medical aspirants has been to be in the top percentile of students qualifying NEET.Data from 2019 to 2022 shows that the total number of students who scored in the 95th percentile and above in Tamil Nadu has gone up from 2,307 students or 1.87% of total candidates appearing for the exam from the state to 3.48 percent or 4,600 candidates in 2022.Nationally, in 2022, 88,343 of 17,72,329 candidates who appeared across India scored above 95th percentile and above, which is around 4.9% of total candidates.Tamil Nadu’s performance amongst top scorers is better than states like Maharashtra which has the largest number of candidates appearing for the exam.In Maharashtra, 3% of appeared candidates scored in the 95 percentile and above in 2022. On the other hand, Uttar Pradesh, which had the second-largest number of NEET candidates, saw 5.3% of its 2.14 lakh candidates in the 95 percentile and above this year.Tamil Nadu’s political parties have argued that NEET deepens disparities since rural students cannot afford coaching as their urban counterparts and are, therefore, disadvantaged in the exams.A nine-member panel, tasked by the state government to assess the impact of NEET on medical admissions, found that the proportion of rural students in Tamil Nadu’s medical colleges fell from an average of 61.45% (pre-NEET 2016-17) to 50.81% (post-NEET 2020-21).According to the committee’s report, the share of English-medium school students in medical colleges has increased from 85.12% to 98.01% since NEET. On the other hand, Tamil-medium school students now make up just 1.99% (2020-21), down from 14.88% four years ago (2016-17).Newsletter | Click to get the day’s best explainers in your inboxSpeaking to The Indian Express, Professor Jawahar Nesan, a member of the state government committee, said: “I will not deny that the performance of students from Tamil Nadu has improved in the last two years. There has been a slight uptick, yes. But reasons for opposing NEET are still valid. This entrance exam encourages coaching. As a result, most of those qualifying NEET are students who can afford to enrol for coaching. This exam is leaving behind a section of our society and exacerbating the rural-urban divide.”Meanwhile amongst all states, Rajasthan — where Kota considered to be the coaching hub of the country, is located — has the highest percentage of students scoring above 95th percentile: 11.2 per cent in 2022.

College professor pulled up for ‘paper leak’; Maharashtra govt orders probe

MUMBAI: A faculty of an autonomous college has been charged with sharing the questions and answers for an upcoming cost accountancy examination with students. Apart from serving an internal college memo, the issue has now escalated to Mantralaya and the state higher and technical education minister, Chandrakant Patil, has ordered a probe into the matter. Assistant professor and head of department of Jai Hind College Ashtuosh Saxena was served with an internal memo by his college on August 29. "You had announced the MCQ questions along with answers to the students in class which were compiled jointly with Ms Nital and these are the same questions that you had set for the CA1 exam. This is equivalent to leaking the question paper," read the memo served to Saxena. College principal Ashok Wadia, in the memo, added: "Giving out such questions and answers to the students in the class and repeating the same questions in the exam paper is a serious compromise on examination standards." Authorities also warned him for his act. In his explanation to the college Saxena, in a letter, claimed that he "accepted" that this was a "serious mistake". When TOI contacted Saxena he said this was a matter of academics and there was really "no issue" here. "I believe in being helpful to my students. While we are given 15 days before the exam to conduct revision, I start revision 45 days in advance. The idea was not to disclose anything, but to help students with their revision...Examination is something we are very sensitive about and for all exam matters, I would leave it to the principal to speak," he said. The state government has called for a probe into the alleged paper leak at the college. Patil asked higher education secretary Vikas Rastogi to co-nduct an inquiry and submit a report. He also asked Rastogi to take strict action once the report is submitted. "This is a very serious lapse on the part of the assistant professor, who is also the head of the department for commerce. Sharing questions with students amounts to leaking the paper and is a serious lapse which requires a probe to investigate if this was routine practice and was done before too. A factual report will be called from the college administration and then action will be taken," said an official.

MUMBAI: With a perfect 100 percentile, Ekansh Shankar, a 17-year-old from Andheri, bagged the top position in the state entrance test for engineering, technical and medical colleges with 26 others across Maharashtra. Results for the state common entrance test (MHT-CET) were announced on Thursday evening. In the Physics-Chemistry-Maths (PCM) category, Hardik Gohil from Mumbai was the male topper and Akola's Sharayu Deshmukh the female topper. In the Physics-Chemistry-Biology (PCB) category, Siddharth Nair and Anushka Kulkarni from Mumbai were the male and female toppers, respectively. Shankar is spoilt for choice. He scored a cent percentile in MHT-CET, but has already set his sights on the computer science department of Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-B). "I've been preparing for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) as well as MHT-CET for the past two years. While my score is good in this exam, I've already got all-India rank 49 in JEE-Advanced and I'm aiming at IIT-B," he said. Similarly, Navi Mumbai resident Utkarsh Pant (18), who also scored 100 percentile in the PCM category, has also managed to bag an all-India rank 45 in JEE-Advanced this year. "I wish to apply for the computer science department of IIT-B. I've been preparing for this for over two years," said Pant. MHT-CET attracted one of the highest registration figures this year compared to the last few years, with 6.05 lakh students registering for the exam. Of these, more than 2.8 lakh registrations came for the Physics-Chemistry-Maths category, of which a little over 2.3 lakh students appeared for the paper. Similarly, of the 3.2 lakh students who registered for the Physics-Chemistry-Biology category exam, nearly 2.4 lakh took the test. According to information shared by the state CET cell, 2.02 lakh of these were female candidates and 2.64 lakh were male candidates. Officials from the state CET cell told TOI that the main reason for a large number of students not appearing for the MHT-CET despite having completed the registration process was the scheduling of several competitive exams at the same time this year. "Due to the delay in conducting class 12 exams and the announcement of results by several school education boards, all competitive exams had to be postponed and eventually were conducted in July and September. This discouraged many students from appearing for back-to-back entrance tests, which has been reflected in MHT-CET," said an official. Qualified students will now have to participate in the counselling process to be considered for admission based on the MHT-CET 2022 result.

The Bombay High Court recently directed the Maharashtra government to ensure that examinations for recruiting public prosecutors in the state be conducted in Marathi language as well.This will be applicable not from the exam held on September 11 but the one after that.Noting that the examination is currently held only in English, the court pulled up the government for not complying with its directions issued twelve years ago to hold examinations for subordinate officers in Maharashtra in Marathi as well. “Twelve years have passed by. It cannot be comprehended that even after 12 years, the government is still searching for examiners to assess the answer papers in Marathi language,” the bench remarked.A division bench of Justice Sanjay V Gangapurwala and Justice R N Laddha on September 7 was hearing a plea by Pratap Prakash Jadhav, who submitted through advocate Alankar Kirpekar, that he studied in Marathi language and proceedings before courts of Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) and Civil Judge Junior Division (CJJD) are normally conducted in Marathi language.Kirpekar submitted that it was incumbent on the Maharashtra government to conduct exams in English as well as in Marathi language.Advocate MP Thakur for the state said the authorities are considering the petitioner’s representation and will consider the same before the next examination. She submitted that nearly 7,700 candidates are appearing for an exam being conducted on September 11 and it may not be possible to find an examiner to assess answer papers in Marathi language. The petitioner referred to a 2010 judgment of the High Court that directed exams for subordinate judicial officers to be held in Marathi and English as the state’s policy prescribed Marathi be made the language of the lower courts.

    Mumbai: The Maharashtra government should implement seriously its policy to promote Marathi language, the Bombay High Court has said while directing it to henceforth hold the public prosecutor recruitment exam in the state in Marathi also.A division bench of Justices S V Gangapurwala and R N Laddha passed the order on September 7 on a petition filed by one Pratap Jadhav, seeking that the exam for the posts of public prosecutors be conducted in Marathi also instead of only English.The order was made available on Saturday.Mr Jadhav had said he studied in Marathi since school, and that proceedings before the courts of Judicial Magistrate First Class and Civil Judge Junior Division are normally conducted in Marathi language.Marathi is a local language, he said.The high court in its order said the Maharashtra government ought to have been serious on the issue."The government cannot say that for the examination of the magistrates and civil judges can be provided for answering in Marathi language and for the examination of Public Prosecutor the same facility would not be provided. In fact, it is the general stand of the government to promote the local language (Marathi)," the HC said."We may not fathom the stand of the government," it added.The examination is scheduled on September 11, 2022 and hence it may not be possible for an order to be passed for this year's exam, the court said."However, the government shall ensure that the next examination to be held for public prosecutors shall be conducted in English as well as Marathi language," it said.The court further said its order would help in implementing the Maharashtra government's policy of promoting Marathi, the language of the state.The petition claimed the Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) holds the exam for the selection of lower courts in Marathi as well as English language.Additional Government Pleader Molina Thakur told the court that this year 7,700 candidates are appearing for the examination for the posts of public prosecutors.PromotedListen to the latest songs, only on JioSaavn.comShe claimed only the petitioner has raised the objection over language and that it may not be possible to find an examiner to assess the answer papers in Marathi language.(This story has not been edited by NDTV staff and is auto-generated from a syndicated feed.)

  • Maharashtra: Apex court to fix hearing schedule for Shiv Sena cross-petitions on September 27
  • Times of India

    NEW DELHI: A five-judge bench led by Justice D Y Chandrachud on Wednesday said it would on September 27 fix the schedule for hearing on cross-petitions filed by the warring Shiv Sena factions, led by Uddhav Thackeray and Eknath Shinde, each seeking disqualification of the other group's MLAs. On August 23, a three-judge bench led by then CJI N V Ramana had referred the dispute to a five-judge bench mainly on two counts - one, the important constitutional questions raised by the Sena factions, and second, the possible reconsideration of the SC's 2016 judgment in the Nabam Rebia case, in which it had ruled that a Speaker cannot decide disqualification petitions against MLAs if a petition for his removal is pending. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal pleaded with the bench of Justices Chandrachud, M R Shah, Krishna Murari, Hima Kohli and P S Narasimha to restrain the Election Commission from proceeding with the petitions filed by the Shinde faction, claiming to be the original Shiv Sena, to wrest control of the 'bow and arrow' party symbol. Sibal said if the rebel MLAs are disqualified from the date of rebellion, then the petition before the EC would not be maintainable as they would be debarred from the primary membership of the party. The EC, through senior advocate Arvind Datar, told the court that deciding which is the original party requires consideration of several aspects and is a lengthy procedure. The process can continue, even if no final orders are passed, he said. The SC said it would take a call on this aspect (original party) first when the matters are taken up for hearing. The same bench also posted for November 1 the chalking out of hearing schedule for two more important issues - whether the reservation for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, originally intended for 10 years, be allowed to continue even after 70 years and the challenge to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). The Shinde faction had claimed in the SC that the Uddhav Thackeray camp was stalling the proceedings before the Election Commission where the former's application staking claim over the Sena and its symbol is pending. Snior advocate N K Kaul, appearing for the Shinde faction, had told SC on Tuesday, "According to us, there was no interim order. The court had granted an extension of time to the other side (Uddhav group). Now, the other side is stalling the proceedings before the Election Commission. Some elections are coming up in the month of October in the state."

  • Maharashtra political crisis: Supreme Court to hear plea on ‘real’ Shiv Sena on September 27
  • Times of India

    NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Wednesday said it will consider on September 27 whether the Election Commission of India (ECI) should proceed to decide which of the two groups - the Uddhav Thackeray faction or the one led by Eknath Shinde - be recognised as the 'real' Shiv Sena. A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud said it will hear the application of the Thackeray group seeking to restrain the ECI from deciding the claim raised by Chief Minister Shinde faction for recognition as the official Shiv Sena party. At the outset, senior advocate Neeraj Kishan Kaul, appearing for the Shinde group, told the bench that the Election Commission cannot be prevented from taking a decision and that there is urgency in view of the impending local body elections. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for the Thackeray group, told the bench that on August 3, the apex court had orally asked the poll panel to not take any precipitative action on the issue. The top court is seized of several petitions filed by rival groups of Shiv Sena in relation to the Maharashtra political crisis. In August, the top court's three-judge bench had referred to a five-judge Constitution bench the issues involved in the petition filed by rival groups of Shiv Sena in relation to the Maharashtra political crisis. Thackeray-led camp of Shiv Sena had sought stay on the proceedings before the Election Commission of India on Shinde group's claim for recognition as 'real' Shiv Sena. Earlier, the Supreme Court three-judge bench had said that some of the issues involved in the Maharashtra political crisis may require a larger Constitutional bench for consideration. It had also asked the Speaker of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, Rahul Narwekar not to take any action on the new disqualification notices issued against the members of Shiv Sena. There are various petitions pending before the apex court filed by both the factions of Shiv Sena. Thackeray-led faction had approached the top court challenging the Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari's decision to invite Eknath Shinde to form the government and also the Speaker's election and floor test. Later they had challenged Shinde group approaching poll panel claiming they are 'real' Shiv Sena. They had also challenged the newly appointed Maharashtra Assembly Speaker's action recognising the whip of Eknath Shinde group as the whip of Shiv Sena. The plea said newly appointed Speaker has no jurisdiction to recognise whips nominated by Shinde as Uddhav Thackeray is still the head of Shiv Sena official party. Thackeray camp's Sunil Prabhu had filed plea seeking suspension from Maharashtra Assembly of new Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and 15 rebel MLAs against whom disqualification pleas are pending. Shinde group's challenged the disqualification notices issued by the Deputy Speaker to 16 rebel MLAs as well as appointment of Ajay Choudhary as Shiv Sena Legislature Party leader, is also pending before the apex court. On June 29, the top court gave a go ahead to the floor test in the Maharashtra Assembly on June 30. Refusing to stay the Maharashtra Governor's direction to the then Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to prove his majority support on the floor of the House on June 30, the bench had issued notice on Prabhu's plea against floor test. After the apex court's order, Uddhav Thackeray announced his resignation as the Chief Minister and Eknath Shinde was later sworn-in as the Chief Minister.

UP tops states in JEE (Advanced), coaching hubs AP, Telangana at 4th, 5th

MUMBAI: Uttar Pradesh, with its largest population of class XII pass-outs, stood at the top spot with 3,864 qualified candidates in JEE (Advanced) results. Rajasthan was a close second with 3,339 candidates. Maharashtra made it to the third position this year in sending the maximum number of candidates — 3,036 — pushing coaching hubs Andhra Pradesh (2,241 candidates) to the fourth spot and Telangana (2,152) to fifth place. However, the disparity between the successful states and the ones that are seeing fewer candidates get shortlisted remains with the top five contributing more than 14,632, or 36%, candidates who have qualified the entrance test for IITs. “The entire focus has shifted to smaller towns where there is a hunger for technical education. In UP, there is a new love for professionals wherein parents even from poor backgrounds have woken up to the benefits of quality,” said Pradipto Banerjee, former IIT-Roorkee director. “From affluent centres, many children are going abroad and there is a new found love for pure sciences.” “Many CBSE students manage to crack JEE, but we see that each year, the dynamics of other state boards change,” said an IIT faculty. Andhra Pradesh, said an IIT dean, has invested heavily in education. “From schools to colleges, there is a greater emphasis on education.” Maharashtra has seen an improvement over the past five years. However, like most years, several candidates register for JEE depending on the state where they are being coached. For instance, hundreds of students from Mumbai would register and take the exam in Rajasthan, where they were being coached. But data collected from IIT-B by TOI indicates the list of candidates who have qualified from various states. The state information is filled in by candidates while registering for JEE (Mains) as the state eligibility data would be used for admission to the NIT system during counselling. Candidate registration/choice filling for academic programmes under JoSAA begins from Monday, 10am. Puzzle solving sharpens Maha topper’s skillsPune-based Pratik Sahoo, from Bakliwal Tutorials, with an AIR 7 is the topper from Maharashtra. Sahoo would solve riddles and puzzles as a child and this became his greatest strength while cracking the IIT entrance exam. “I developed a knack for solving riddles in my childhood. When I joined IIT coaching, the director encouraged me to continue with it. It helped me develop my thinking skills,” he said.

Rishi Balse from Tardeo, Mumbai was the toast of Maharashtra as topped the state with an All-India Rank of sixth in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (UG) 2022, the results for which were declared on Wednesday late night. Three from Mumbai, including Rishi, made it to the list of top-50 candidates across India while Vaidehi Jha from Wadala topped the girls’ category in the state’s merit list.In times when preparation for competitive exams is considered directly proportional to the coaching giant one takes admission to, Balse decided to take a road less traveled as he did not want to feel boxed in while preparing for NEET. A student of Campion School till class X, Rishi joined KC College while preparing for NEET. He finished top of the pile in the state after the results were declared on Wednesday, scoring 710/720. “I never wanted to join any big-name tuition classes which don’t allow you to have time for yourself, not just for preparation but also to unwind. I prefer balance in life. We have seen examples of burnouts due to overwork,” said Rishi, who joined Science Simplified Private Tuition to prepare for NEET.He said he used to prepare daily goals to take one day at a time. “If you set a larger goal for yourself, you are bound to feel overwhelmed. After all, preparing for NEET is definitely a mental health challenge,” said Rishi, a passionate musician. He has learnt to play the piano and will soon start taking guitar lessons. Apart from pursuing medicine at the KEM Hospital medical college, Rishi’s dream is to release his own music album someday.With a score of 705/720, Vaidehi hopes to bag a seat at a reputed government medical college for MBBS, embarking on a journey to become a surgeon. “Surgery and the human body are the topics of my interest. Whenever we had free time in class, I would ask the teacher if we all could watch surgery videos as they give us so much information,” said Vaidehi. Her father is an engineer with the central government while her mother is a homemaker. She also has an elder sister, who is a corporate lawyer.Vaidehi said she was ready to tread a totally different path after discovering her passion and did not shy away from the hard work required to achieve her goal. “While there is no option but to work hard, one should not constantly keep studying. It is important to have some free time as well. I read books and wrote journals which kept me refreshed and motivated,” said Vaidehi, adding that she liked studying online as she could conserve energy on travel. However, she said a regular-set-up would have helped. “When you are studying online, you are preparing in isolation and seldom have the opportunity to see where you are on the scale,” said Vaidehi, who loves listening to music and is learning to play the guitar.Thane boy Saahir Bajaj, who also made it to the top-50 at AIR 20, said the pandemic-induced online learning helped him focus on studies as less time was spent on commuting. He said while his batch had a pandemic challenge; the next might have to contend with some other challenge when appearing for NEET or other competitive exams. “What’s important is to keep yourself motivated,” said Saahir, adding that he was aware of the pressure of a competitive exam. He said his twin brother Kabir is waiting anxiously for his Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) – Advanced results.The National Testing Agency conducted the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (UG) for 18,72,343 candidates at 3,570 centres across 497 cities, including 14 outside India, on July 17.

Students shocked after Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Limited marks them absent in BA exams

NAGPUR: The ousted Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Limited (MKCL) continues to make one of the other blunders. In the BA first semester results, which were declared recently after an inordinate delay of over six months, the Pune-based company has marked many students absent, despite the fact that they had appeared in the exams. While blaming the MKCL for the mess, the NU officials told TOI that the firm committed many such series of blunders in its efforts to declare the results in a haste. “The MKCL officials were in slumber for all these days. They suddenly became active after BJP MLC Pravin Datke and Congress MLC Abhijit Wanjari raised the results delay issue in Maharashtra Legislative Council after receiving a slew of complaints from the students and NU statutory members. As they came to know that higher education minister Chandrakant Dada Patil had scheduled the meeting, they rushed to declare all the results, pending for nearly five months,” they said. Like vice chancellor Subhash Chaudhari and pro-VC Sanjay Dudhe, even Board of Examinations and Evaluation (BOEE) director Prafulla Sable refused to pick up the calls or respond to the text messages regarding blunders in BA results. NU coordinator for MKCL Satish Shende too did not pick up the TOI’s calls for his comments. According to the students, due to such repeated blunders from the MKCL, their future was in jeopardy and they could lose one academic year, if NU fails to rectify the errors in results. They rushed to the NU Exam Section in this regard, however, none of the officials entertained them. Many of them were shown absent in one subject while few in two subjects. “The summer exams of our courses are underway. Until we clear the first semester exams, we cannot get admission to the third semester as per rules. We are worried as NU officials are not informing us and diverting queries to MKCL,” they said. NU erred in roping in MKCL: Wanjari Speaking on the MKCL, MLC Wanjari told TOI that VC Chaudhari erred in roping in MKCL, despite the fact that it was blacklisted by many other state universities. “The NU top brass should have listened to the Senate and Management Council members who had strongly opposed the reinduction of the company. It was very surprising that NU decided to continue its services ignoring its earlier miserable record in our own university. Even the VC should not have taken the private company’s personal guarantee of success, being on a statutory post,” he said. Errors in BEd 2nd sem paper: Bajpayee Slamming the NU administration led by vice chancellor Subhash Chaudhari and pro-VC Sanjay Dudhe, former Senate member Manmohan Bajpayee said even the Bachelor of Education (BEd) second semester paper was full of errors. “In the paper of Gandhian Philosophy, Nai Talim and Community Engagement Methodology, the option of Mahatma Gandhi was given twice among four options and one of it was given in Marathi, in the English paper. The question was who was ‘Originator of basic education?’,” he said. The university should have ideally taken strict action against those committing such errors, but the current dispensation had a tendency to protect all firms and even its staffers. “The VC is yet to terminate MKCL’s services even after clear orders from the education minister. It also protected the Hindi teacher, who allegedly harassed two PhD students and had many such complaints against him,” he said.
