Due to shutting down of internet

services in parts of Maharashtra during the Maratha quota

stir, caste validation of 2,344 students who had appeared for

the engineering CET is pending, an official said today.

The state government will, however, seek extension of

the deadline from August 10 to August 14 to enable the

students to upload their caste validity certificates, he said.

The allotment results for additional round of the MH

CET 2018, held in May this year, were announced on August 7 in

online mode.

"Due to ongoing Maratha stir and shutting down of

internet services in different parts of Maharashtra, the

students could not upload their caste validity certificates.

The last date for uploading the documents is August 10," the

Social Justice department official said.

Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MHT CET) is a

state-level under-graduate engineering entrance exam, which is

conducted by the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE).

He said a request has been sent to the Admission

Regulatory Authority (ARA) seeking extension of the deadline

for online submission of certificates.

The internet services in seven rural tehsils of Pune

district and parts of Aurangabad district were suspended today

to prevent rumour-mongering during the one-day shutdown

observed by Maratha organisations.

Internet services in Navi Mumbai and Aurangabad

(Rural) were suspended for some time during the Maratha quota

agitation last month.
