After the results and merit list for Maharashtra ITI were announced yesterday, DVET will declare seat allotment result for first round tomorrow on July 14.
DVET Maharashtra has announced to release merit list and results of ITI admissions today while allotment of seats will be published on 14 July.
ITI Provisional merit list will be released by Directorate of Vocational Education & Training on July 12, based on the applications received. DVET had invited online applications for around 1.32 lakh seats in 417 government and 496 private institutes across the state offering ITI diploma courses. As much as 4,05,651 students registered, while 3,51,453 completed the registration process by filling option form and uploading document.
The demand for ITI courses has surged over the years as can also be seen from the number of applications the DVET has received this year. With a wide range of courses, engineering courses have evolved as the major attraction for aspirants. Engineering courses/trades such as ‘electrician’ had approximately 48 times more applicants than there were seats available last year. Other trades with huge demand include fitter, wireman, mechanic diesel, welder and mechanic motor vehicle. On the other hand, several non-engineering trades such as steward, front office assistant, physiotherapy technician, fashion technology, masonry, basic cosmetology receive less applications in comparison to engineering trades.
DVET has closed the applications on Monday and the provisional merit list will be published today on July 12. Students will also be notified through SMS about the ITI merit list. The first allotment list will be published as per the schedule on July 14, at around 11 AM, after which students will have time till 5 PM, 18 July to furnish the admission formalities. The colleges will report about the vacant seats and hence the second allotment list will be published on July 24. There will be five allotments in total, followed by an additional round for government colleges only.
