To clear confusion over the management programmes admission across maharashtra, the state's DTE has issued a notice saying admissions would be based on the Common Management Admissions Test (CMAT) conducted by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi.
A DTE official said, "The aim is to create awareness among students and clear any doubts that they may have,"
According to the public notice issued by the AICTE, which said that technical institutes offering PGDM, PGDM Executive and PGDM have issued advertisements for admitting students in various programmes other than the common entrance exams approved by the supreme court, which includes CMAT, CAT, MAT, ATMS and JMET.
The AICTE notice had warned that students admitted through any other admission test will be declared ineligible, and the diploma offered to the student would be considered "null and void".
The DTE circular says that it will not conduct any common entrance test for admission to MBA courses, and asks students to register and apply for CMAT.
The Directorate has already notified that admission to all AICTE approved management courses will be carried through CMAT merit list from 2013-14," says circular.
