This move by the state CET cell comes after DTE Maharashtra received a lot of requests from the test takers for refund of seat acceptance fee during Centralized Admission Process (CAP) 2016-17.

 

Though as per the admission rules of DTE Maharashtra, there is no such provision for fee refund, however, the state CET cell has taken a lenient approach to refund the seat acceptance fee for such candidates.

 

According to DTE Maharashtra Commissioner, “There is no such provision of refund of Seat Acceptance Charges as per Admission rules. However, considering the lack of awareness among the candidates about Centralized Admission Process (CAP), as it was implemented for the first time, in its new form, during academic year 2016-17, Admission Regulating Authority has considered such requests sympathetically and has decided to refund the amount after deducting processing charges and other expenses incurred in refunding this amount.”

 

Further the competent authority has also made clear to all aspirants and candidates that the decision to refund seat acceptance fee for examinees of MHT CET 2016 is only one-time measure and it should not be quoted as precedence in future. 

 

The official announcement further stated that the fee refund procedure may take a couple of more months. It is expected to be completed by March 2017, as fee refund will be made after complete reconciliation of the accounts, finalization of method of refund etc.

 

DTE Maharashtra had re-introduced MHT CET for the year 2016-17 after a gap of 2 years for admissions to undergraduate engineering programmes across the state engineering colleges. Earlier, for 2014 and 2015, admissions to B.Tech programmes across the state engineering colleges were offered through JEE Main. As many as 4,09,276 candidates had appeared in MHT CET 2016, out of which only 3,97,768 took the entrance test, which means that 11,508 registered candidates could not appear in the state level engineering entrance test.
