Seats vacant: Maharashtra to restart BEd admission process
In the state of Maharashtra, three seats in every hundred for BEd programme are lying vacant in colleges which have urged state government to restart admission process for the course. 
The process is likely to get started on Friday for which the government has provided an online facility for the aspirants for the application of the course. 
Admissions will take place on Saturday. 
Around 550 unaided colleges of Maharashtra conducted separate Common Entrance Test (CET) for BEd programme last year. 
The state has 50 aided colleges. 
As a big reason behind the vacant seats is that many aspirants could not take the CET exam because they were unaware of changes in the system. 
According to Directorate of Higher Education (DHE), not more than 10 seats are filled in 300 college divisions. Each division has 50 seats. As many as 25,000 seats across 735 college divisions are still lying vacant.
