The MHT CET for admission to Engineering, Pharmacy, Agriculture and Veterinary Science courses, is set to start from May 2. More than 4.20 lakh students are likely to appear in the exam, which will be conducted by the CET Cell. This year the exam and the entire process of the examination will be done online, hence the examination authorities have urged the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd (MSEDCL) to provide uninterrupted power supply to areas where examination centres are situated.
The CET Cell is concerned about loadshedding problem. Therefore, Commissioner of CET Cell, Anand Rayte, sent a letter to all Regional Chief Engineers of the MSEDCL in the state to stop load shedding in areas where examination centres are allotted.
According to sources, the load shedding issue was raised during a review meeting held in Mumbai. During the meeting members of the CET Cell had voiced concern on loadshedding issue.
