High Court puts on hold MBA admissions in private colleges in State


The Bombay High Court through an interim order on April 23, 2015 stayed admissions to Masters in Business Administration (MBA) courses in Maharashtra.

After hearing the petitions filed by MBA aspirants who had complained about the irregularities in the MBA Common Entrance Test 2015, a division bench of Justice V M Kanade and Justice M Sonak asked private colleges not to proceed with the process of admitting students.

The State Department of Technical Education had on its own accord stayed admissions to MBA courses in its colleges after the students approached the High Court. The High Court has scheduled the hearing of the matter filed before different benches of the Court in Mumbai, Nagpur and Aurangabad on April 28, 2015.

The MBA-CET for admissions to B-schools across Maharashtra was conducted across four batches on March 14, 2015 and March 15, 2015. The CET conducted this year was embroiled into controversy as students complained about the mass copying, technical glitches and attendance chaos.

The State Department of Technical Education had reportedly admitted to 59 questions across four batches of the exams that were void. The students also claimed that various problems had affected their scores.
