MUMBAI: Announcement of the much-awaited CBSE Class 10 and 12 results on Friday will set in motion the admission season for junior colleges. As for the degree section, most colleges under Mumbai University, which have already completed three rounds of admission, will fill in their remaining seats with CBSE and ISC students based on their cut-offs in the third list. ISC results are still awaited though. Some of the autonomous colleges, which were waiting for the CBSE and ISC students, opened their admission portal on Friday after the CBSE results. With all education boards declaring their Class 10 results, the online first year junior college (FYJC) admissions started from Friday, when students, including those seeking quota seats, were allowed to fill their preference of colleges (maximum of 10). There are over 3. 7 lakh seats (including 1. 4 lakh quota seats) in colleges in the Mumbai region. However, with more students figuring in the 90 percenters club in both CBSE and ISC, cut-offs in sought-after colleges are likely to be on the higher side—a disadvantage for SSC students whose 90% club has shrunk. Till Friday evening, more than 5,300 ICSE and 100-plus CBSE students were among those who had filled their choice of junior colleges. Over 2. 8 lakh SSC students have filled their choice of colleges so far. Students need to check last year’s cut-off of the colleges (available on 11thadmission. org. in) before filling their preferences, said an official. In the first round, students who do not take admission in their first preference college, will not be able to participate in the second round. They will be back in the seat race from round three. The admission process schedule will be announced soon. As for degree colleges, the ones under MU will fill in their remaining seats with CBSE and ISC students. Students will have to fill the forms for all colleges they desire to seek admissions in. “Colleges may get permission from the university for additional seats in excess of the intake to admit CBSE and ISC board students as per college merit cut-off in due course,” said a university official quoting their earlier admission circular. Mithibai and N M colleges under the SVKM group star- ted the application process for their traditional courses such as BA, BCom and BSc on Friday evening. “For these courses we will come out with our first merit list on July 27. For self-financed courses, the admission was done on the basis of an entrance test, which is almost over,” said Krutika Desai, principal, Mithibai College, adding they plan to start their session in August first week. At KC and HR colleges, which come under HSNC University, CBSE and ISC aspirants had already filled the forms. Vice-chancellor Hemlata Bagla said they will unlock the forms and allow students to submit their marksheets. The colleges had set aside 35-45% seats for CBSE and ISC students. The schedule for phase II will be out on Monday, said Bagla.

In the wake of actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Arora contracting Covid-19, Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar has said it is not right to be carefree when the pandemic has not ended.The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Monday said the two actors had tested positive for the coronavirus and those who came in contact with them were traced and their tests conducted, the results of which were awaited.Speaking to reporters on Monday, Pednekar said if people flout Covid-19 norms, why strict action should not be taken against them. “Kareena has two kids at home. It does not suit well to act carefree when the Covid-19 pandemic has not ended. We have contacted the Grand Hyatt Hotel where a party was held and Kareena attended it. We are tracing others who were present there,” the mayor said. The BMC staff has also contacted the physician of the two actors and both are under home isolation, she said.Also Read | Kareena Kapoor Khan, Amrita Arora test Covid-19 positive after partying with friends“I can understand if some teenagers were present at such a party. It is their age and they like to enjoy, but people should take utmost precautions. Those who are in the limelight, why don't they fear Covid-19?” the mayor said.Despite strict instructions regarding Covid-19-appropriate behaviour, if people are seen flouting it, "why should we not take strict action against such people as per the pandemic rule book?" Pednekar said."Although we have succeeded in slowing down the coronavirus infection rate, it has not gone completely,” she noted. The mayor said the new coronavirus variant Omicron has also posed new challenges. "In such situation, it is our appeal to the people to adhere to Covid-19 norms and follow them. As part of the unlock guidelines, we have been allowing relaxations in terms of gatherings and attendance at events. It seems some people and hotels are taking undue advantage of it,” Pednekar said.She said some political parties were also taking advantage of the relaxed norms. "If we decide to impose strict norms and introduce fresh restrictions on movement, there are some people who would oppose it fiercely,” Pednekar said. Kareena Kapoor Khan on Monday confirmed her diagnosis on Instagram, adding that she hopes to be "up and about soon".According to the BMC sources, the tests of Khan and Arora were conducted on Saturday and it was confirmed on Sunday that they had tested positive for the viral infection. The civic body will check reports that both had violated coronavirus norms and attended several parties, the sources said.Check out latest DH videos here

NAGPUR: In a major development for the city, Nagpur has joined the United Nations' 'Race to Zero' initiative which has been kick started in Maharashtra by state environment minister Aaditya Thackeray. The Race to Zero is the largest credible alliance of companies, cities, states, regions, investors, universities and all actors overall aiming to halve carbon emissions by 2030 and individually committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2040 at the very latest. Taking note of a seven-fold increase in drought events and a six-fold increase in the frequency of extreme floods events and rising number of deaths due to chronic respiratory diseases in the state, the government has joined the initiative of which 43 cities across the world are a part of. As part of this initiative, cities will prevent future climate threats, create jobs and unlock sustainable growth. Participating cities will also report their greenhouse gas emissions and strategise to reduce these by mid-century, in line with the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. With Nagpur joining the Race to Zero, the state is hopeful that the city would lead the way towards a net zero pathway. Cities are the solution to addressing climate change. One of the things Maharashtra is doing is ensuring that discharge and emission standards set by the pollution control boards are followed. We are not saying that the state will now move away from being an industrial power house or financial hub that it is. We are crucial for the country in terms of finances or industries, but we need to ensure that the promises made in terms of emissions and discharge are followed," said state environment minister Aaditya Thackeray. Nagpur Municipal Commissioner (NMC) Radhakrishnan B stated that the city will look at C40 challenge as a path to develop itself into a sustainable city with a model to demonstrate to the world that growth with equity and sustainability is possible. "We are in the middle of converting our public transport buses into electric. Also we are coming up with extensive public bicycle sharing network to promote non-motorised transport in the city. Nagpur has finalised climate action plan which will be rolled out soon," he said. Stressing that there is an urgent need to transit from what we are today into something climate friendly, Thackeray added, "All governments and sub-governments like Maharashtra need to learn that this is a climate emergency. We need to step beyond discussions and reorient ourselves in terms of what we term as development to sustainable development. Every aspect of policy, be it roads or building dams or airports, needs to pass the climate test. We need development, but if we have sustainable development, then we are going to have climate change impact mitigation and adaptation."
