2nd Entrance test for Diploma aspirants
PTI: Odisha government will hold second entrance test to fill up the diploma seats lying vacant in private engineering schools of the state.

Orissa High Court directed the State Director of Technical Education and Training (DTET) yesterday to complete the process of admissions as soon as possible after conducting the entrance test before August 15.

Taking up a writ petition filed by Odisha Private Engineering Schools' Association (OPESA), a single judge bench of Justice B N Mohapatra gave the direction.

OPESA in its petition had stated that more than 60 per cent of seats are lying vacant in all the private engineering schools of the state after the end of admissions made on the basis of first entrance examination held in May.

The association had contested saying that delay in publication of state matriculation examination results had deprived many students of the opportunity of appearing the first entrance test and hence had urged the High Court to direct the state government to conduct another entrance examination.
