Mumbai: First Year Junior College’s (FYJC) online admissions portal was shut on Wednesday for maintenance because of which the students now have to try for online admissions on Thursday. The admissions portal had crashed on Tuesday due to heavy site traffic.

Education department has said that they have done this to ensure a problem free online portal and they may even extend the deadline of online admissions to ease the process. More than 67,000 students have filled the online admission form while 1.75 lakhs students are yet to do so.

Colleges are supposed to conduct a ‘zero round’ for admissions to in-house, minority, and management quotas from June 16 to June 30, but some of them are yet to start the process as they are waiting for the website to work properly. Some others are announcing merit lists for quotas this week.

According to the education minister, Vinod Tawde, “The portal will be made and the site will be back on track by 10 am on Thursday.” “Online access to the process has been started as part-1 and part-2. Yet, 30,000 students are left from part-1. There are 28,967 students in part-2 forms,” the minister added.

The size of bandwidth would be increased and new server would be installed. Two more servers to the existing seven were working so that the website could bear the heavy traffic. Sources said the newly changed servers would help the site, which has been down since Sunday, and that will help students to upload their forms. After installation the process will be faster and easier. Until Monday evening, however, it was still slow and full of glitches and on Wednesday it was completely shut for repairing.
