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,"
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.
