Maharashtra Education Minister

Vinod Tawde said Wednesday that the process of students

council elections will be completed by September 30 in the

next academic session.

The elections to students councils in colleges and

universities will be held as per the recommendations of the

Lyngdoh Committee, Tawde told reporters here.

The election program will be declared before July 31

and by September 30 the university students councils would be

constituted, he said.

"Elections will be held on the principle of straight

majority. The election to university council and college

councils under that university will be held on the same day,"

Tawde said.

There will be no political interference in the

elections, he said.

"Those desirous of contesting elections should enrol

for a full-time academic course in any recognised university

or college in the academic year," the minister said.

College elections were banned in the early 1990s.
