Traf­fic po­lice of­fi­cers fill pot­holes on the Sion hospi­tal fly­over on Wed­nes­day.

The state school ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment will help Sec­ondary School Cer­tifi­cate (SSC) top­per Sak­shi Ra­jwani, whose name was not in­cluded in the first merit list, de­spite scor­ing 99.8%, be­cause of a tech­ni­cal er­ror in her online form. The state has de­cided to se­cure ad­mis­sion for Ra­jwani to Vaze Kelkar Col­lege, Mu­lund, through the man­age­ment quota.

Ra­jwani, a stu­dent of Sa­cred Heart School, Kalyan, was not al­lot­ted a seat af­ter an er­ror oc­curred while she was sub­mit­ting her ap­pli­ca­tion form, leav­ing it blank.

The er­ror threat­ened to cost her an aca­demic year be­cause the ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment re­fused to al­low her to cor­rect the form af­ter the June 22 dead­line. How­ever, af­ter read­ing re­ports of her plight, ed­u­ca­tion min­is­ter Vinod Tawde in­ter­vened on Wed­nes­day.

“I in­structed the deputy direc­torate of ed­u­ca­tion to al­low her to fill the online regis­tra­tion form. The depart­ment will help her se­cure ad­mis­sion in the man­age­ment quota,” said Tawde.
