Issues pertaining to admission reigned Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik’s weekly janta darbaar at Vashi. Worried and anxious parents made a beeline to the darbaar. Speaking to the media after the darbaar, in an appeal to parents; the Minister assured that all students will get admissions.
Confusion continues into the third year of online junior college admissions as students and parents, forced to name limited colleges, grappled with a problem of plenty this time. While the process has been overall smooth sailing, the option forms proved a poser as some had problems filling in the compulsory college codes. Most people didn’t know about that many colleges. Many parents are worried about their forms being rejected or cancelled if they repeated college codes. Some parents who tried to log into the website have been facing technical problems. Evidently, the scenario not being any different in Navi Mumbai and Thane led to worried parents and anxious students making a beeline to Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik’s janta darbaar held at Vashi this week. Admission subject reined the issues taken up by the Thane Guardian Minister. After the darbaar the Thane Guardian Minister assured that students and parents need not panic as all of them would get admission. Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik informed that since the population of Thane district has increased drastically, he has took up the issue at the weekly cabinet meeting of the state held earlier this week.
He said that since there are 7 municipal corporations and 5 municipal councils in Thane district, the strictures of the state education dept. should be waived off here. After receiving flak from students and parents about the junior college admission process last year, the state education department has definitely taken pains to ensure that the process is much more streamlined this year, but there still are many grey areas that need to be addressed by the state next year. Perhaps, that’s why in some scenarios like that in Thane district, the suggestions of Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik could spell relief for panicking parents and students.
