In a recent declaration by the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), Maharashtra, around 60,000 engineering seats are up for grabs in the fourth round of the Centralised Admission Process (CAP) conducted by the Maharashtra State Common Entrance Test 2016 (MHT-CET) .
DTE has allotted around 15% seats for admissions in the engineering colleges in Maharashtra through the JEE Main score. Around 2,300 seats are reserved under this All India Quota. Admissions to these seats will be given on the basis of JEE Main paper-1 score.
“Students seeking admission through their JEE Main score can fill the option form for the fourth round of CAP. It is not necessary that a student must have taken the MHT-CET 2016. Students who gave the MHT-CET 2016 will be given first preference while allotting a seat and the remaining seats will be then allotted to the JEE students,” said S K Mahajan, Director of DTE Maharashtra.
Earlier, seats were allotted through the JEE Main score in the three round of CAP. Soon after the allotments were done, CAP scrapped the admissions citing an error from the DTE’s side.
