25 Transgenders To Appear For CET Exams In Maharashtra


Is India progressing finally?

We’ve seen this quite often that transgenders are not allowed a lot of things in India but these norms are changing. Kerala held sports meet of the transgenders and New Delhi is planning for reservations especially for transgenders, but now its Maharashtra’s turn.

The state government is planning on creating a commission for the welfare of transgenders. Not just that, on Thursday, May 10th 2017, 25 transgenders will be appearing for the Maharashtra CET (common entrance test) for admission infor admission to First Year of Full Time Degree Courses of Technical Education (Engineering and Technology, Pharmacy and Pharm. D.) for the academic year 2017-2018.

The total number of students appearing for this exam is 3.9 lakhs and out of these 1.5 lakhs will appear for engineering and pharmacy.

“We have seen a rise in the number of candidates in engineering as JEE is a tougher exam and also has negative marking. Also, as per the Supreme Court directive, this is the first time that we are recording the number of transgender students who will be taking the test,” said Dayanand Meshram, joint director, Directorate of Technical Education (DTE).

The test will be conducted in 1100 centers across the state. The DET has asked the students to carry their MHT-CET admit cards, an original photo for identity proof and PAN card or passport and black ball pens.
