Degree college seats set to rise by 13,000

MUMBAI: There's some good news for students still seeking admission to undergraduate programmes of their choice. A recent government resolution has allowed all state universities to give permissions to colleges seeking a 10% increase in intake capacity across courses. This could push the total number of seats up by 13,000.

Seats in colleges affiliated to Mumbai University in the sought-after self-financed courses or even the traditional BCom may go up 10%.

Mumbai University registrar M A Khan said, "Colleges where courses are more in demand but the number of seats is less can seek a raise in intake capacity. Institutions which are willing to increase their capacity and have the infrastructure to do so will be given permission. The university has already received several proposals, which will be put before the authorities before sanctions are given."

Khan said the 10% increase will be over and above the sanctions for new divisions that may come from the state government this month.

While the overall capacity in the university's affiliated colleges is around 1.3 lakh, the intake might go up by 10% subject to a college's willingness and demand. Self-financed courses, which closed at higher percentages in some prominent colleges, might have more seats once permissions are given. Some popular colleges have received over 4,000 applications for around 600-1,000 seats in their BCom course. Many have received around 2,000 applications for 60-120 seats. However, over 60,000 seats are still vacant in Mumbai University across all courses.

T A Shiware, chairman, Association of Non-Government Colleges, said they had earlier sought the state government's nod for a 10% blanket hike in the number of seats. "This year's HSC results have been very good across boards. So the demand for good courses and colleges was high this year compared to the previous year," Shiware said. He added that a few more seats in the traditional BCom course would help accommodate more in-house students, which several colleges are unable to do this year with the overall good HSC results.

While many colleges who have the capacity will opt for the rise in intake, some others are unwilling to increase the burden on teachers. Principal Sunil Mantri of NM College said each of the divisions in traditional courses already have more than 120 students. "In some classes, there are 140 students. Increasing these numbers will make classrooms overcrowded. Also, I would prefer increasing the number of divisions instead of the intake in each division." programmes,students,state universities,admission
