The UT Government today advised the Board of Professional Entrance Examinations (BOPEE) to call for domicile certificates only from the candidates shortlisted for counselling and not insist upon their production from the candidates at the time of the submission of the online forms.
According to a government advisory, the Board has been told to modify its notification to provide for the self-declaration of the domiciliary status at the time of the submission of the online forms as per the new domicile rules, further stating that only shortlisted candidates might be asked to produce the domicile certificate at the time of the counselling. The advisory has been issued to set at rest any apprehensions in the minds of the candidates regarding the issue.
The government has also advised BOPEE to explore the possibility of extending the last date of submitting application forms in the CET examination to June 15. —TNS
