The Maharashtra state education department will soon launch a mobile application for admission process for first-year junior college (FYJC) students.
According to a report by Hindustan Times, the app will be launched in coming days. The colleges will also grant provisional admissions to students and the fee payment procedure would be online, to prevent students and parents from gathering at the colleges.
Meanwhile, students can fill part 1 of the admission form from August 1 and get details of admissions on official website, https://mumbai.11thadmission.org.in. The state education department is yet to declare the dates for Class 10 results.
Rajendra Ahire, deputy director, Mumbai region, told the leading daily that due to COVID-19 outbreak, students cannot visit colleges, and the state education department has decided to conduct the admission process online. Students can fill out their forms online and also upload their documents on the portal online, he added.
