Cutoffs high as 32 ayurveda colleges await nod by Maharashtra University of Health Sciences

MUMBAI: Of the 83 ayurveda colleges in the state, 32 are yet to get approval from the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS). With 32 colleges missing from the first round of allot ment, students found the the cut-offs for BAMS to be on the higher side. Parents alleged that it has become a regular practice with the university for delaying permissions, despite a late st art to the admission process. An official from the state’s CET cell said they are awaiting approvals from the university and will add the seats in the next round of allotment. Parents, however, say that this last-minute approvals are causing confusion among students, who are making choices based on the seat matrix. Sudha Shenoy, a parent representative, said that of the 32 colleges awaiting approval, six are aided colleges and the rest are private. Allotments in these 32 colleges were not done in the first round. The cut-offs for government colleges was 470 an d for private colleges it was 375. Shenoy said that it will go down once these colleges are added. Among other AYUSH courses, 11 homeopathy colleges are awaiting approval from the univer sity and five unani colleges are also not in the list. A parent said there has been a delay in starting the admission process this year, and there was no reason for the university to not complete the approval process beforehand.

THANE: The MMRDA has given its approval to ease congestion at one of the 'world's most chaotic' traffic junctions at Teen Haath Naka by constructing a fresh pair of U-shaped flyovers in addition to the existing bridge that runs above the intersection, officials informed, adding that the project will also ensure the arterial junction could get rid of signals presently required for crossing the intersection. The proposal for the flyovers - with three lanes each and collectively costing approximately Rs 289 crore - was presented before the MMRDA committee last month and finally got administrative approval. Teen Haath Naka is a vital junction on the Mumbai (LBS route)-Thane-Pune-Nashik route where nearly seven roads, including three arterial lanes, converges. A 2014 study commissioned by the Thane corporation had pegged the junction as one of the world's most chaotic ones. Even though the MSRDC had built a flyover over the junction two decades back, it doesn't cater to the rising movement of traffic underneath and between the seven lanes that connect Mumbai-Thane via LBS road with the Eastern Express Highway. According to the plans, a 700m-long, U-shaped flyover will take off from the Nashik lane of the EEH after the Teen Haath Naka junction ends and will run parallel to the existing bridge and then take a turn to the right and land few metres ahead of the junction on the Mumbai-bound carriageway. All vehicles coming from Mumbai and entering Thane city or proceeding towards LBS road or old Pune highway will take this arm without waiting at the signal for crossing over. Similarly, traffic from Nashik, Pune and Thane city headed towards Mumbai using LBS road will ascend the second U-shaped flyover after crossing the junction on the Mumbai-bound lane of the highway. The flyover measuring 900m in length will run parallel to the highway and take a U-turn and land in the opposite direction ahead of the Teen Haath Naka. Officials say once the project is completed, the waiting time at signal for Mumbai, Thane, Nashik, and Pune-bound vehicles will be reduced substantially. The plan entails removing the signals that increase waiting time and often stretches beyond 15-20 minutes. The inclusion of the two U-shaped flyovers at the spot will prove beneficial in smooth management of traffic, especially once the metro station comes up on the stretch. The project may affect a small stretch of green cover between the service road and the highway.
