Speeding up FYJC e-Admission Process

Bombay High Court suggests boosting FYJC e-admission process, experts say it's too late

Registration for First Year Junior Colleges(FYJC) started on April 13 and got over on 17 April. With regard to the fyjc online admission process, college principals have been called in for training by the deputy director's office along with information technology experts.

Though a recent order by the Bombay High Court has suggested improving the online admission process for first year junior college (FYJC), education experts across the city feel it is too late to bring any changes; as the court's final hearing on the same is yet to take place.

Recently, a parent from Pune had moved the HC against the FYJC online admission process. Bhimrao Phadtare, deputy director, school education said: "We have sent out the dates of training and called for principals to attend it. The HC order was meant for Pune, as the discrepancies were found there and not in Mumbai's admission process."

Phadtare added that the department will wait for the HC's final order, after which they will decide on what changes to bring about.

The vice principal of a South Mumbai based college opined that since it took a lot of time to get implemented the online process 'cannot' be scrapped.

"Earlier, parents used to run from one place to another for admission forms. It is too late also to make any changes in the system as the process will begin in two months," added the vice principal, wishing anonymity.
